NCCCO Crane Test Prep in Texas

Everything is bigger in Texas, right? That can certainly be said for the construction industry. In spite of the economic climate, there are still many crane jobs available in Texas. While the construction industry is marching on in the Lone Star State, it is important to make sure that you are current on all required NCCCO certifications before you apply for a job. If you have employees who work with cranes then it’s important to make sure that they have the required certifications as well.

Crane Operator Classes in Arkansas

Some would be surprised to learn that Arkansas, along with five other states, has one of the 2nd highest location quotients of crane operators in the entire country. There also seems to be a good number of employment opportunities in the state, with one job site listing more than 1400 open positions.

Economic Downturn Produces Increase in CCO Re-certifications

Some would think that a difficult economy would cause a decrease in the number of crane operators who pay to keep their certifications current – especially among those crane operators who are not working at the moment. Instead, the opposite is proving true. Crane Operators understand that it costs less to re-certify than it does to lose their certification and then have to start the process all over again down the road. That is why even out-of-work men and women are choosing to take advantage of how easy it is to re-certify.
