NCCCO Renames Mobile Crane Exams and Load Charts

March 2008 - Effective the first quarter of 2008, the NCCCO Mobile Crane Specialty Exams no longer have a manufacturer's model number associated with each crane type.

As an example, the Lattice Boom Crawler Examination for the Manitowoc 888 Series 2 Load Chart has been modified and renamed the Lattice Boom Crawler Crane
Examination
- Manitowoc (LBC) Load Chart.

Joe Bob Williams, chairman of the Written Exam Management Committee (WEMC) stated, "The Committee made these changes so load charts could be modified to better meet the knowledge statements contained in the content outline as published in NCCCO's Mobile Crane Candidate Handbook."   

Phillip Kinser, NCCCO's Manager of Program Development, noted that the changes were being made to ensure the continued fairness of the Mobile Crane Specialty Exams across the spectrum of crane types and within the specific mobile crane categories.  He added, “The Written Exam Management Committee at times modifies the load charts so that appropriate notes and crane concepts as listed in the content outlines can be addressed in the written exam process. The changes also ensure that candidates demonstrate their understanding of concepts regardless of which particular manufacturer's load chart is used."

The name changes are reflected on the titles of both the initial and recertification specialty exams, as well as on the revised Candidate Application for the Written Exam. The Load Chart Manual has also been modified.
