National Center for Construction Education & Research
Being a crane operator is one of the most rewarding careers you can choose. Crane operators are highly valued for their knowledge and expertise. They work on a variety of construction projects and have excellent opportunities for high earnings, career advancement, and business ownership.
NCCER has developed a specific one-level curriculum for Tower Crane Operators covering topics such as Tower Crane Safety, Rigging Practices, and Communications.
NCCER's Tower Crane Operator Certification Program consists of assessments and practical examinations that meet or exceed current ASME and federal OSHA consensus safety standards.
Tower Crane 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. Learn how to become a Tower Crane Practical Examiner.
