Mobile Crane Certification Prep Course

NCCER / NCCCO Test Prep & Study Guide

What's in the Training Course?

According to OSHA standard 1926.1400, crane operators are required to obtain certification that ensures they are properly trained and competent to operate safely. To satisfy this requirement, they must be tested by an accredited facility. The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) are two organizations thus accredited.

Our Mobile Crane Certification Prep Course covers a wide range of general information meant to help you prepare for testing for your certification through NCCCO or NCCER. Please note, in order for your certification to be complete, you will also need a safety training.

The goal of this course is to review the principles of stability as they apply to cranes; discuss load charts, how to read them, and give you some exercises to complete to ensure you fully understand how to properly utilize them; review rigging equipment and safe rigging principles; and discuss work habits that can keep you safe on the work site.


What questions will be on the NCCCO or NCCER?

There is simply no way of knowing which questions will be pulled and show up on the proctored mobile crane certification test by the NCCCO or NCCER. However, our mobile crane certification prep course will prepare you for any and all NCCER or NCCCO core test questions. This course is invaluable if you need to ensure you pass the test the first time.
