Operator Recertification

We certify operators through the NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research), and NCCCO (National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators), both of which are organizations nationally accredited through ANSI and recognized by OSHA.

Recertification is required every five years for both certs.  NCCER recertification consists of written and practical examinations in each crane type you were originally certified in.  Re-certification candidates are welcome in any of our rookie certification classes and you may choose to attend as much or as little of the prep class as you think you need.   We also offer shortened classes specifically for NCCER recert candidates.  They are composed of just one day of classroom prep, and one day for the written and practical testing.  Study materials will be sent to the candidates in advance along with homework assignments.  Click here to register for an NCCER recert class.  A final option for NCCER recerts is to study on your own and then test with us by appointment when you're ready.  Call or email to discuss this option.

NCCER recert classes are also open to operators who have not previously been certified, but who would like a fast-track option and are willing to study on their own.

The following NCCER recert classes are scheduled for the 2023 season:

January 26 - 27, 2023, Montpelier, VT

February 23 - 24, 2023, Concord, NH

April 18 - 19, 2023, Portland, ME


For NCCCO-certified operators, recertification candidates can take just the written exams and skip the practical if they have 1000 hours of seat time in the previous five years. Recert candidates are welcome in our regularly scheduled CCO classes at a reduced price that includes just the classroom prep and written exams. Please click here for the current NCCCO class schedule.
