NCCCO Mobile Crane Certification

We receive many phone calls at Total Equipment Training from individuals looking to get their NCCCO
Certification. While our business has primarily served corporations in NCCCO certifying their operators
onsite, we have seen the need to help individuals or smaller companies with just one operator find an
affordable way to prepare for, and successfully pass, the NCCCO written exam.

NCCCO has made a lot of changes and has more options than ever in both the content of their tests and
the way you can take the tests. They have simplified choosing which mobile crane tests to take by
categorizing the tests into four categories Swing Cab (TLL), Fixed Cab (TSS) Lattice Boom Crane (LBC)and
Service Truck Crane (STC). The load charts now used are NCCCO generic and are not manufacturer
specific. They take in account all types.

Total Equipment Training has been successfully providing our NCCCO mobile crane test prep manual and
practice tests for a few years with great success. We have recently updated our practice tests and
manuals to consider the new generic load charts. We also continue to keep our other load chart
practice tests available for additional practice and prep. They have been shown to compliment and
provide further knowledge and understanding of load charts and have proven successful in taking the
NCCCO specialty tests.

Studying and preparing for the exam is the first hurdle to certification. The second is, how am I going to
take the exam. NCCCO has a few options available now. You can take Computer Based Testing (CBT),
Online Proctored Testing (OPT), Event Based Testing (EBT), Pencil, Paper Testing (PPT). Unless you know
of a group or can find an event, your options really are CBT or OPT testing. Computer based testing has
been around for quite a while so we want to go over the newly released NCCCO Online Proctored
Testing which shows great promise for the individual.

The biggest benefit of Online Proctored NCCCO Testing is it allows the candidate to use their own
computer and to schedule the test 24/7/365 days a year from almost anywhere. It is highly suggested
you watch the video outlining how the online testing works so you are familiar with the navigation tools
