At CIC we are committed to serving the crane industry by providing efficient and relevant certifications to meet or exceed OSHA requirements and industry best practices. Our active Governing and Advisory Boards are made up of experienced subject matter experts who help us provide the best certifications available.

Here's what industry professionals say about CIC:

"OSHA is now requiring crane operators to be certified by 2014. CIC is the best option I've found for nationally accredited certifications by type and capacity,"  says Tony Brown, Safety Consultant.

"Now that OSHA requires "qualified" riggers, we recommend CIC's affordable rigger/signal person certifications to comply with the requirement," says Mike Parnell, President of Industrial Training International, Inc. (ITI).

"I recently needed to register a candidate for exams that were to take place the next day. I sent an email to CIC after hours and was shocked and relieved when I received a call from your customer service representative that evening and took care of the registration immediately. The next morning another representative followed up to make sure the issue had been resolved. I appreciate the above and beyond service I received. It's a pleasure to do business with CIC."  — Travis Good, President, American Crane Operators
