Be A Crane Operator And Operations

One of the heavy equipment jobs that almost always is on the top of the pay scale is the crane operations. There’s a lot that only a crane can do, so this position is in high demand, too. But the reason crane operators get sought out and get paid well is that they do a dangerous job that takes a lot of skill. Crane operators need to be certified by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) because that ensures the operator meets high standards of knowledge and skill.

Crane Operator Certification

Crane operators get their NCCCO certifications by passing both written and practical exams, just like you got your driver’s license by passing both a written test and a driving test. The reason both kinds of testing is required is that operating a crane is every bit as potentially dangerous as driving can be.
