Crane Operator Certification

In order to earn a CIC crane operator certification, candidates must take and the General Knowledge written exam, a supplemental written exam for each certification desired, and a hands-on Practical Exam.


The Practical Exam is a demonstration of the candidate’s hands on skills actually operating the crane.  At CIC, one Practical Exam can qualify an operator for several types of certifications as long as the corresponding Written Exam supplement with the general knowledge portion is passed.


Crane operator certifications are valid for a period of five years from the date the first Written or Practical Exam is passed.
