Crane Operator and Inspector Training

NCCCO-compliant training and certification testing for crane operators and inspectors

Cranes and various types of lifting equipment are used in support of industrial operations around the world, including many operations in the petrochemical industry. Understandably, safety is a primary concern, both for crane operators as well as for those working in close proximity to crane operations. Training on the safe operation of crane equipment is an essential tool in preventing accidents and injuries.

Operators and inspectors who have received training in the safe use of specific types of cranes can seek certification from The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO). Some companies may require operators to hold NCCCO certification for the type of crane equipment they use. But, regardless of whether or not it is required, certification is evidence of advanced training and education on the safe use of cranes and lifting equipment.

TÜV SÜD Chemical, Oil and Gas offers training programs that support each of the certification categories available through the NCCCO. Individual training programs available through TÜV SÜD include:

  • Mobile crane training
  • Tower crane training
  • Overhead crane training
  • Articulating crane training
  • Service truck crane training
  • Digger derrick training
  • Signal person training
  • Rigger Level 1 training
  • Rigger Level 2 training
  • Crane inspector training
  • Lift director training

In addition to training, TÜV SÜD also administers written exams (CCO exams) designed to evaluate a certification candidate’s knowledge of safe crane practices. The exam is required for those seeking NCCCO certification.

TÜV SÜD crane training courses are taught by TÜV SÜD instructors and other industry experts. Scheduled training programs are conducted throughout the year in Houston, TX and at other locations. Many of our crane operator and inspector training programs can also be delivered at your company on an in-house basis, and customized training is also available to meet specific training and development objectives.
