This training was recently mandated for any operator within the City of Cincinnati. OSHA will be mandating in the near future for all sites. Get your operators certified now, don’t lose work later. Expand your ability to win work by getting new operators trained. This is a great combination of technical classroom instruction and hands-on to cover crane operation: pre-operational inspection, setup, load moment indicators, with emphasis on how to control the load.
Accredited certifications are OSHA recognized and NCCA accredited. The course is instructed by Crane Institute Certified Trainer, Brenda Hawkey. She has been in the safety field for more than 19 years, with a broad industry background including construction, manufacturing, and education.
- The Written Exam will consist of a general knowledge portion and a supplemental exam section for each type of certification the candidate wishes to achieve.
- The Practical Exam is a demonstration of the candidate’s skills actually operating the crane. At CIC one Practical Exam can qualify an operator for several types of certification, as long as the corresponding Written Exam supplements are passed.
Crane operator certifications are valid for a period of five years from the date the first Written or Practical Exam is passed. Review our list of upcoming classes to register. Have questions? Contact Us
