Open Enrollment Crane Training & Certification

Nationwide Crane Training offers crane operator courses for National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) certification to individual operators and company employees who have some real-world experience in two open-enrollment class options:

On-Site NCCCO Crane Certification
Virtual/Webex Crane Operator Training

In-Person NCCCO Crane Operator Certification

NCT administers our in-person, on-site crane training certification classes for experienced operators year-round in locations such as California, Iowa, Texas, Nevada, and North Carolina, so there’s sure to be one offered near you. (If you’re interested in beginning a career as a crane operator, check out NCT’s Crane Boot Camp, designed specifically to educate and certify those with no crane experience.)

Getting yourself or your operators and up to date has never been easier. Our crane training certification classes allow you or your operators to get the certification needed—including OSHA-mandated CCO certification—with minimum disruption to your schedules or timelines.

NCT’s Open Enrollment Crane Operator Certification Classes:

Expert Instructors Maximize Your Training Time

For crane industries, time is money. Nationwide Crane Training knows that companies and operators alike, especially in the utility, power, and energy industry, simply don’t have time to spare. Whether you’re a company or an owner/operator, every hour spent in the classroom is an hour off the job site. That’s why our Open Enrollment courses for experienced operators are just five days long.

We also know that smaller companies in particular can’t afford to send multiple operators away for training and risk that they’ll fail the actual exams. Nationwide Crane Training is a WBENC-certified, woman-owned business that retains some of the best instructors in the industry. Our NCCCO-accredited instructors hail from all types of crane-operating careers, including military, firefighting, FEMA, IUOE Union, CALOSHA, FEDOSHA and—of course—utility, power, and energy. This expert training minimizes the risk of having to retest for certification.

In fact, we guarantee that operators who complete our classes will pass their written exams!

Our Equipment, Your Operators

NCT’s in-person crane operator and certification classes include the necessary equipment to facilitate learning the skills to pass the practical exams. This means you don’t have to sacrifice your equipment for the duration of the course—or have to sacrifice your training because you don’t have equipment of your own. It also saves a ton of time and money because your equipment stays right at the job site. There’s no need to have it test-weighed, get CADs, or transport it to the class location for setup. Additionally, because your equipment stays on your site, you can cycle all of your operators through our open-enrollment programs so you’re never left with idle machinery.

For maximum efficiency, we suggest staggering your operators’ training in open-enrollment training classes across a span of a month or two to accommodate the most operators possible in the least amount of time. However, if our classes don’t fit your schedule, we also offer Private Crane Operator Training Classes for companies on your site, at your convenience.

NCT has its bases of operation at our two state-of-the-art training facilities in California and Iowa. We offer in-house classes with the same quality education, attention to detail, and exacting standards at either of these two campuses. Classes run year-round and can accommodate five or more at once.

If neither works for you, we can bring the training to you. Our programs are completely mobile, based on interest. We’ve offered remote open-enrollment classes in multiple locations in California, Iowa, Texas, Nevada, and Alabama.
