The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) has their own certification programs that can be used to assess an operator’s knowledge. There are an array of ways in which these tests can help your business. We encourage you to contact us for more information if you are curious about the benefits that engaging in NCCCO testing and certification could have for you.
Using the results of the initial assessment, we develop a targeted training plan to address the areas of the operators’ skills that need improvement. We will then work directly with you and your operators to provide your staff with the tools they need to improve and the tools you need to implement your own training procedures.
After the training program is completed, the ADEPT Heavy Equipment Operator Post-Assessment will retest employees and identify any remaining areas of concern. We will then produce a detailed report with initial scores, the administered training and the final results.
