NCCCO certification is essential for successful employment as a crane operator. Colorado Crane Operator School has the distinction of being an approved NCCCO testing facility. The course, therefore, is tailored to give trainees the knowledge, skills, and experiences necessary to excel during the examination process. In the last week of this course, students will complete the NCCCO exams, using the same equipment they were trained on for the practical portion of testing. No fees are charged for the first written and practical NCCCO examinations. However, students are required to pay a nominal re-testing fee in order to retake any examinations they should fail.
