CIC Adds Tower Crane Operator Certification

Crane Institute Certification (CIC) has announced that a new certification for tower crane operators is now available. One certification covers self-erecting, fixed jib, and luffing boom tower cranes. Tower crane operator candidates will pass a written and a practical exam to earn the certification.

“Although we have been certifying mobile crane operators for a decade, one of the most frequent requests we heard over the last few years was for a tower crane operator certification,” CIC president Jim Headley said. “We are proud to offer CIC’s higher level of certification for the three types of tower cranes.”

CIC’s OSHA-recognized, NCCA-accredited certifications for crane operators include telescoping boom cranes (fixed or rotating cab) under 21 tons, 21 to 75 tons, and over 75 tons; lattice boom cranes (crawler or carrier mounted); articulating boom cranes; service/mechanic truck cranes; and precast concrete delivery cranes. The organization also offers accredited certifications for rigger/signalpersons (one certification combines levels I and II) and master riggers.

Crane Institute of America Certification, LLC (CIC) is an independent certifying organization providing OSHA-recognized, NCCA-accredited crane operator, rigger and signalperson certifications. CIC certifications meet or exceed current and pending OSHA requirements for certification of crane operators by type and capacity and rigger/signalperson qualification by examination.
