The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO - www.nccco.org) has begun offering its crane-operator certification exams via computer. Paper-and-pencil exams will continue to be offered. Initial roll-out of computer-based testing (CBT) will focus on mobile-crane certification, first in California and then expanded to other states and other programs as demand dictates. Both the full initial mobile-crane core and specialty exams will be offered, along with corresponding recertification exams.
Candidates will apply for CBT testing through a new online application process at http://www.iaiexam.info/CBTApp.html. NCCCO contracted with LaserGrade to develop the web tests, which are administered by the International Assessment Institute.
