CIC Exams

In order to earn a CIC crane operator certification candidates must take and pass Written Exams and a Practical Exam. Written Exams will consist of a general knowledge exam as well as a supplemental exam for each type of certification the candidate wishes to achieve. Visit for more information on scheduling written exams.

The Practical Exam is a demonstration of the candidate’s hands-on skills operating the crane. With CIC, one Practical Exam can qualify an operator for several types of certification, as long as the corresponding Written Exam supplements are passed. Each practical exam will consist of four timed challenges on hand-eye coordination, depth perception, maintaining a load under control, and hand signal recognition.
