Crane Operator Certification Packages
Package & Prices FAQ
We do not offer hand signal and rigging certification; and it is not required. There is an OSHA fact sheet that you can read through to see the federal requirements. OSHA requires signal and rigger persons to be qualified, not certified. We believe based on OSHA's position that to certify a candidate based on the exact type of rigging that they are doing for their job would be impossible to test them on using a standardized test. Therefore we believe that certification is not appropriate for this, but qualification by the employer is.
No we do not, but getting certified on the fixed-cab crane -- that is accepted as an articulating crane certification. NCCCO has developed an articulating crane program, but that doesn't necessarily mean you have to take that program in order to operate that type of crane.
See above. Articulating and knuckle booms are the same type of crane.
