NCCCO Announces New Separate Color-Coded CCO Certification Cards
Crane Operators, Riggers, Signalpersons, Crane Inspectors, Practical Examiners, and Auditors will now be issued separate color-coded CCO cards, according to the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO). Previously, all certifications were listed on one card. The new cards will also reflect the full five-year certification period for each category. Previously, all certifications had a common expiration date, regardless of when the candidates passed the test(s).
CCO Operators CardsCCO Operator cards will continue to have a black band across the bottom, while the Signalperson and Riggers cards will have a green band. The new Crane Inspector cards have a blue band. The information on the back of the cards will be tailored to reflect each program’s particular requirements.
The new policy went into effect on July 2, 2012. However, previously CCO-certified cranes operators who hold rigger or signal person certification will also be issued new Rigger and Signalperson certification cards at no charge. Mailing of the new cards to existing certificates will be completed by mid-summer.
