April 2016—Building on the momentum generated by successful Lift & Move USA career events in Chicago last summer, and Houston in February, two more Lift & Move USA events have been scheduled for 2016.
Next up, Bucker Companies in Graham, NC, will host a one-day event on May 17, followed by Bragg Crane in Long Beach, CA, on November 2.
The first two events generated enormous interest among local high schools and career placement groups in the opportunities that professional certification can provide in the crane, rigging, and specialized transport industries. Correspondingly, the two additional events scheduled for 2016 have already garnered significant interest among employers seeking to identify the next generation of operators, engineers, riggers, mechanics, and sales staff.
“Given the importance of training and certification to the continued success of our industry, the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) will continue to help organize Lift & Move to make potential entrants to the industry aware of the availability of certification and how it can elevate the professional status of these occupations,” said NCCCO Director of Operations and Program Development, Joel Oliva.
“In conjunction with the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association (SC&RA) and industry publisher KHL Group, NCCCO will continue to help grow and evolve Lift & Move USA to attract more young people to the industry,” Oliva continued. “The Lift & Move USA team is already considering how we can not only grow the size of these events, but what other resources we can offer to both employers and young people to help bring them together for actual job placement opportunities.”
