National Center for Construction Education & Research
In 2010, OSHA updated the crane regulations to include additional training and qualifications for riggers. In response, NCCER has restructured and added to its existing curriculum to create a three-level rigger course that meets or exceeds the current requirements found in the OSHA 29 CFR Part 1926 Amendment.
Topics covered in Basic, Intermediate and Advanced Rigger include Rigging Equipment, Basic Principals of Cranes, and Lift Planning.

NCCER’s Rigger & Signal Person Certification Program consists of assessments and practical examinations that meet or exceed current ASME B30 consensus safety standards and OSHA 29 CFR part 1926 subpart CC.
Rigger & Signal Person Endorsed Accredited Assessment Centers are able to deliver the certification program (assessments and practical examinations) to their employees/membership using their own equipment as personnel are available and time permits.
