There are many risks that are associated with working in the crane industry. Working on, in, or around a crane can be very dangerous. Mistakes can be very costly and can often result in serious injuries or death. California Crane School / American Crane School conducts a condensed test preparation course that is designed to assist candidates with the successful completion of the NCCCO crane operator certification written exams and provides candidates with the opportunity to take the NCCCO crane operator certification practical examinations (practical examinations may be subject to crane availability and weather conditions). This course is not intended to replace a crane apprenticeship program, or a crane safety training program. Nor is it intended to provide candidates with all the necessary information to perform their duties in the crane field safely and proficiently. We are not qualified to give legal advice. Students should always follow all applicable manufacturers, state and federal regulations. Candidates should also be familiar with the operator's manuals and load charts for the specific cranes they will operate.
