A 'Deep Dive' Into the Crane Operator Certification Process
Orange Park, FL (September 3, 2020): The PDCA 2020 Annual Conference Webinar Series continued on Wednesday, September 2nd. During the second installment of the five part series which runs through December, Ms. Toya Brown (pictured) of the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) delivered a presentation detailing the process and benefits a participant can expect while pursuing the OSHA-required, Dedicated Pile Driver Operator certification.
According to Ms. Brown, an individual who intends to pursue certification must be at least 18 years of age, he/she must comply with NCCCO's substance abuse policy and Code of Ethics, and he/she must pass both a written and practical exam.
Among the many benefits to an individual or organization that successfully completes the rigorous, NCCCO training and examination include:
- Reduced risk of loss
- Fewer accidents
- More consistent training
- Expanded job opportunities for those who work in and around load handling equipment.
The PDCA 2020 Annual Conference Webinar Series continues on October 7th which will feature a presentation on Working Platforms.
