September 2012 - Terex Utilities held the first NCCCO Digger Derrick Operator practical exams during the week of August 20 in Watertown, SD. During the week, 11 candidates were tested on the digger derrick operator practical exam, which were conducted by four NCCCO-accredited Practical Examiners from Terex Utilities, a charter member of the NCCCO Task Force that developed the program.
The event was held in conjunction with Terex Utilities’ annual Hands-On training program, which provides essential training on the operation and application of Terex Utilities’ digger derricks and other equipment. The three-day program is designed for customers as well as distributor personnel to learn the proper operations of the equipment. Participants gain valuable hands-on training on the application of the equipment to meet various jobsite requirements as well as an understanding of appropriate work methods and safety procedures.
