CCO Mobile Crane Operator Certification

Total Equipment Training, in compliance with OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1400, offers mobile crane certification training through the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (CCO) organization. The CCO certification is widely recognized by states and is often the preferred licensing option.

This certification is mandatory for crane operators in industries such as construction, with varying state-specific criteria for licensing. Our CCO Crane Certification classroom training includes the core exam, specialty knowledge, and load charts. This comprehensive program covers 4 key domains:

  1. Site focuses on understanding supporting surface capacity, proper use of equipment like mats, blocking, cribbing, and hazards like electric power lines.
  2. Operations delves into federal regulations, safety standards, rigging methods, and crane operation best practices.
  3. Technical Knowledge covers crane terminology, attachments, wire ropes, and load handling specifics.
  4. Load Charts explores load chart terminology and reading for specific specialties.

Practical training encompasses tasks such as pre-operational inspections and safe shutdown procedures, which are evaluated in the real-world crane operation skills assessment during the practical exam.

We also offer free mobile crane certification practice tests and study materials to support your preparation for the CCO Crane Certification examination. Contact us if you have any questions!
