New CCO Foundation Drill Rig Operator Certification

April 2018—Work is well underway on the new CCO certification program for Foundation Drill Rig Operators, which NCCCO is developing in conjunction with ADSC — The International Association of Foundation Drilling. The task force creating the program has achieved a consensus on the structure of the program and identified the test components, namely a core written exam, two written specialty exams (Drilled Shaft Drill Rig and for Anchored Earth/Micropile Drill Rig), and two corresponding practical exams (Drill Shaft Drill Rig and for Anchored Earth/Micropile Drill Rig). Candidates will be able to earn their certification with either or both specialty designations. The program is slated to launch by the end of 2018.
