New England Crane School was founded in 2010 by Larry DeBattiste, an NCCCO-certified operator with 25 years of experience in the heavy construction and marine industries, and his sister Anna DeBattiste, a training professional with 20 years of experience in training and instructional design. 

Today the business is managed by Anna, who also provides written examination services. Training is conducted by NCCCO-certified operator Frank Donahue, a 45-year veteran of the crane industry. Frank was trained as an NCCER-certified instructor, and is also an NCCCO practical examiner.  He was the owner of A1 Crane Service in Dover, New Hampshire from 1996 to 2006, and has also worked for several of northern New England’s largest crane rental services. He has been training and testing crane operators since 2008.

NCCER practical exams are conducted by Mark Kenney, who also manages logistics and provides classroom support for New England Crane School.  Mark's background is in facilities management and property maintenance, and he has been working with New England Crane School since 2012.
