Training Policy

The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) does not offer training.

Nevertheless, CCO considers training to be vital to the certification process. Indeed, one of its principal aims has been to stimulate the recognition for the need for professional instruction in the knowledge and skills that define crane operator competency.

CCO recommends any candidate or instructor wishing to prepare for the CCO certification exam to utilize the study materials listed in the Candidate Handbook, and carefully review the Knowledge Areas listed there.

CCO strongly urges employers or candidates seeking training to submit the CCO Knowledge Areas to any training firm they may consider utilizing to ensure their curriculum matches the knowledge tested on the CCO exam.

Training Companies

While CCO is unable to recommend or endorse any particular training company, the following companies have indicated they offer preparatory training for the certification exams administered by CCO, and are using the CCO logo and/or acronym with permission in accordance with CCO’s stated policy (see Use of CCO Logo). No endorsement of the programs offered is implied, nor is this list necessarily all-inclusive.
