We provide crane-related safety training and certification programs, at your location or at one of ours, including:
Our public classes are held seasonally from late fall until spring in locations throughout northern New England including Montpelier, Burlington, Concord, Portsmouth and Portland. We are also available for onsite classes and private consulting at your location anywhere in the U.S. throughout the year.
Our training classes are taught by experienced, NCCER- NCCCO- and CIC-certified crane operators who understand the practical realities and challenges of working safely and effectively on crane sites. Using a combination of instructor lectures, participant discussions, videotaped scenarios and hands-on practice, we go beyond the textbook and teach you what you really need to know.
We are pleased to report that in February of 2017, we became an NCCER certification provider!
The NCCER (National Center for Construction Education and Research) is a well-respected organization founded in 1996 as a non-profit education foundation. It was developed with the support of more than 125 construction CEOs and various association and academic leaders who united to revolutionize training for the construction industry. The NCCER offers curricula for more than 70 craft areas and more than 70 assessments, and New England Crane School is now offering NCCER certification in four types of mobile crane operations: industrial cranes, lattice boom cranes, telescoping boom cranes, and boom trucks. These certifications are nationally accredited by ANSI and recognized by OSHA as meeting the requirement for operator certification or qualification by November of 2017.
After a year and a half of public comment and debate, OSHA finally made the extension of the operator certification requirement official in 2014.Read more ...
