CSAA fully endorses the national certification program offered by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO), and will prepare canidates for the CCO test.

CCO Prep Courses and Practical Exams

Recent changes in OSHA regulations require that all crane operators in the construction industry must meet specific certification standards by November 10, 2014. (see OSHA 1926.1427)

Crane Safety Associates of America can help you meet these requirements and remain compliant.  Crane Safety fully  endorses the national certification programs offered by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, and will prepare candidates for the CCO exams.

As a permanent test site for the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, Crane Safety will prepare candidates for the CCO written and practical (hands-on) exams. We currently offer programs including:

  • CCO Lattice Crane Operator
  • CCO Swing Cab Crane Operator
  • CCO Fixed Cab Crane Operator
  • CCO Articulating Crane Operator
  • CCO Tower Crane Operator
  • CCO Overhead Crane Operator
  • CCO Rigger
  • CCO Signal Person


CCO Certification is valid for a period of 5 years.

We work to accommodate individuals who need to complete their certification for the first time as well as those who need to re-certify. Our facility is conveniently located near Interstate 75 ~ about 15 miles south of the Atlanta airport. The surrounding area provides plenty of options for lodging and meals.

Businesses with several employees requiring certification may find it beneficial to schedule dedicated sessions. For your convenience, Crane Safety Associates can provide this training and testing at our facility or at your designated site. If you decide to host the sessions, we are ready to assist you through the process and can help with the necessary equipment documentation, CAD drawings and Test-Site set up.

Don't wait to begin the certification process. As the deadline for OSHA compliance draws nearer, courses may be filled to capacity. To schedule your class, contact Kathy Morris (kathy@cranesafetyassociates.com) or by phone at 1-800-356-2212.
