NCCCO Rigger I Certification

OSHA requires a “Qualified” Rigger during assembly/dis-assembly of cranes and when a person is engaged in hooking, unhooking, guiding a load, or the initial connection of a load to a component or structure and is within the fall zone (1926.1404; 1926.1425). Employers can opt to train their riggers in house to qualify them for the specific rigging duties required (site specific). This qualification is only recognized while working for that employer.

NCCCO Rigger I Certification is a portable license that is recognized as the gold standard for basic rigging qualification. The license is portable and is not site specific. The basic rigger program includes simple, repetitive rigging tasks when the load weight, center of gravity, the rigging and the rigging configuration are provided or known by the rigger. Rigger I candidates will demonstrate they are able to inspect rigging before each use, identify and attach rigging through knowledge of hitch configurations, capacities and basic knots. They are able to recognize associated hazards and perform signal operation for a safe lift.

The NCCCO certification program is recognized by the Federal Occupational Safety & Health Administration as meeting OSHA’s requirements for basic rigging qualification.

Total Equipment Training’s trainers are all licensed riggers and examiners for the NCCCO. Their experience and knowledge are evident by our high success rate of licensed riggers. Our comprehensive program will provide candidates with all the information they need to successfully pass the written exam and will provide the time and training they need to confidently complete the practical exam.
