How to Get Certified
In order to earn an accredited CIC crane operator certification candidates must take and pass both a Written Exam and a Practical Exam. The Written Exam will consist of a general knowledge portion and a supplemental exam section for each type of certification the candidate wishes to achieve.
The Practical Exam is a demonstration of the candidate’s skills actually operating the crane. One Practical Exam can qualify an operator for several types of certification, as long as the corresponding Written Exam supplements are passed. Crane operator certifications are valid for a period of five years from the date the first Written or Practical Exam is passed.
