Welcome to training website.

We are an approved NCCCO Test Site and our examiners are all accredited and certified by the (NCCCO) National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators.

Training and Testing:

CE's complete training curriculum includes classroom preparation covering complex load charts, operating procedures, rules and regulations for operating mobile and tower cranes, simulators for both tower and mobile cranes, hands on training and NCCCO Testing and Certification. We offer standard classes that are 1 to 4 weeks, as well as custom tailored training as desired.

CE's complete training facility simulates a real construction site, where students will learn the operating skills and techniques required to become a professional crane operator.

CE training will include: the safe selection and use of rigging, proper load attachment to the cranes and correct hand and radio signals. Students will learn how to lift light and heavy loads and placement of these loads at predetermined locations. The CE training curriculum includes concrete bucket placement, wall form rigging/lifting/setting, steel column and beam erection. Classes include boom and jib assembly training and operation of both friction and hydraulic cranes.

CE holds Safety as a number one value. It is our goal to instill this value in every person who attends our training facility; allowing our students to bring safe operating practices to the workplace.

Available Training Cases:

  • NEW Freestanding, cab operated Potain tower crane: tallest standing training tower crane used in the country with maximum height and boom jib operating configuration.
  • Fixed Cab National, Elliot, National and Pioneer Boom Truck up to 30 tons
