CIC - Saving Lives

Welcome to Crane Institute of America Certification (CIC). We issue NCCA accredited operator certifications for mobile cranes (five type and capacity levels), articulating boom cranes, digger derrick cranes, and service/mechanic truck cranes. Certifications are also issued for, riggers, signalpersons and master riggers. CIC meets OSHA's current requirements for crane operator certification by type and capacity and OSHA's rigger and signalperson qualification requirements. Written exams are available in both English and Spanish.

There are other choices when it comes to selecting a crane operator certification organization.

Why we are different

  • You only have to take one practical exam for up to five type and capacity levels of certification, and that saves you time and money.
  • Our written exams incorporate pictures that help candidates understand the questions.
  • Our customer service personnel are available every step of the certification process and afterwards.
  • CIC is recognized by OSHA and accredited by both NCCA and ANSI.

These are just a few reasons why we are becoming known as The Standard in the industry for crane operator, rigger and signal person certifications.

Here's what industry professionals say about CIC:

"OSHA is now requiring crane operators to be certified by 2017. CIC is the best option I've found for nationally accredited certifications by type and capacity,"  says Tony Brown, Safety Consultant.
