Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau Partners with SC&R Foundation

Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) announces its partnership with the Specialized Carriers and Rigging (SC&R) Foundation for a series of grants to be awarded to individuals pursuing skills and/or certification as a Crane Operator or Rigger.

Continuing their mission to upgrade the skills and certification of the current workforce and provide a continuous pipeline of trained and educated workers entering the field, Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) has entered into a partnership with the SC&R Foundation to provide worthy applicants with grants for Crane Operator Training and NCCCO Certificate Courses.

The grants, which are open to the public through the SC&R Foundation are awarded to individuals pursing a career in the specialized transportation, crane, or rigging industry. Typically applicants are seeking skills and/or certification as a Crane Operator or Rigger.

“We are extremely pleased to assist the SC&R Foundation in opening up doors to those wishing to enter the crane and rigging industry or for those needing certification to continue their careers” said Craig Epperson, CEO of CICB.

Recently, CICB established the first and only career school in the Houston area approved and regulated by Texas Workforce Commission Career Schools and Colleges to train and certify individuals as crane operators and riggers.

“With the aging of the ‘baby-boomer’ workforce and the tremendous amount of construction occurring from the Texas coast to the Florida panhandle, the current labor shortage has become a crisis” continued Epperson. “By partnering with the SC&R Foundation offering CICB Workforce Grants and promoting careers in the industry with Lift & Move USA, we are encouraging those who might otherwise not consider or even be aware of the opportunities available.”
