Boom Truck Operator

NCCCO Boom Truck Training

The Boom Truck Operator Training program is specifically designed to upgrade the existing knowledge and skill levels of experienced operators, trainees, safety personnel, inspectors, maintenance personnel, managers, and supervisors. The information provided in the classroom is reinforced with hands-on application sessions on a boom truck crane at CICB’s Orlando training facilities or with your equipment at your site. All personnel attending this program will gain significant and useful skills and will leave with a stronger understanding and appreciation of the requirements and responsibilities of Boom Truck Operators.

Both five and ten day Mobile Crane Operator programs are offered. CICB recommends that trainee operators participate in the ten-day program to gain additional knowledge and seat time in CICB cranes.
