The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) conducts audits of practical examination sites/practical examiners in accordance with the accreditation requirements of the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).
Practical Exam test sites and Practical Examiners are selected for audits on the basis of a variety of criteria including: random selection; in response to issues reported by candidates; or unusually high or low pass rates.
Once a site has been selected for an announced audit, the Test Site Coordinator or company representative from the site will be notified by letter from NCCCO prior to the scheduled audit day. In addition, the Auditor will contact the Test Site Coordinator or company representative to verify the testing date and the site address. Audits may also be scheduled without prior notification.
It is a condition of Practical Examiner accreditation and Test Site status that all site personnel, including the Test Site Coordinator, Practical Examiner, and Proctor cooperate fully with the NCCCO Auditor during the audit process.
