Lift Director Certification

The Lift Director course is designed to provide the participant with the full range of knowledge necessary to safely oversee all aspects of a hoisting and rigging event. The training is tailored to help the participant process all the data available for a particular lift and, in many cases, determine what additional information must be obtained and know how to provide it. After "Lift Director" training, the participant will learn and understand a Lift Director's responsibilities and how to perform them, as described in OSHA 1926.1400 and ASME B30.3 and B30.5, when using mobile and tower cranes. As well as can pass a written evaluation verifying the competency to direct lifting activity using mobile cranes.

Assembly and Disassembly (A/D) director

The Assembly/Disassembly course is designed to give the participant the ability to qualify as the Assembly/Disassembly Director. The course includes understanding and correct application of definitions, ground conditions, selection of manufacturer and/or employer procedures, general OSHA and ASME requirements, powerline safety, and post-assembly inspection.

NCCCO Mobile Crane Prep Class

The NCCCO Mobile Crane Operator Prep Course is designed to prepare experienced and trained operators, who currently work in mobile crane operations, for the successful completion of NCCCO (National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators) written and practical exams. The OSHA regulations require crane operators working in construction or performing construction-related activities to be certified through a nationally accredited agency.

Class Duration: Two Days

Day 1: Preparation for the NCCCO Core exam Covers

OSHA 1926.1400 CC in detail to include:

  1. Crane set up
  2. Inspection
  3. Working around powerlines
  4. Signal person requirements
  5. Hoisting Personnel
  6. Requirements for Barge Mounted Mobile cranes
  7. Rigging
  8. Assembly Disassembly of lattice Boom Cranes
  9. Rigging

Interpretations from B30.5 Mobil Crane Standard

Day 2: Preparation for the NCCCO Load Chart Portion of the Mobile Crane Specialty Exams To Include:

  1. TSS (Telescopic Small Hydraulic Crane)
  2. TLL (Telescopic Large Hydraulic Crane)
  3. LBC (Lattice Boom Crawler Crane)
  4. LBT (Lattice Boom Truck Crane)

NCCCO Rigger Level II Prep Class

The NCCCO Rigger level II Prep Class is designed to prepare the candidate for the NCCCO Rigger Level II written exam. In addition to knowing and demonstrating Rigger Level I knowledge and skills, a Certified Rigger Level II can select rigging components and procedures based on rigging capacity.

A Level II Rigger can perform the following rigging tasks unsupervised:

  • Estimate load weight and center of gravity
  • Identify lift points
  • Determine and select rigging based on loading
  • Perform pre-use inspection of rigging and lift points
  • Identify and attach rigging with knowledge of hitch configurations and load angle factors, rigging capacities, and load integrity
  • Understand load dynamics and associated hazards

As applicable, Level II Riggers will also have a working knowledge of hoisting equipment, winches, jacks, industrial rollers, and similar equipment.

The prerequisite is NCCCO Rigger level I . Candidates may take the Rigger Level One Prep Class the day before the Rigger level II prep class , but NCCCO requires that before receiving the Rigger level II certification the candidate must be NCCCO Rigger Level I certified. Candidates are permitted to take both written tests at the same session in proper sequence.
