Welcome to the Northwest College of Construction

This nationally recognized crane operator certification program is a combination of the written (3-hour) exam and a (1.5 hour) practical exam. We highly recommend that students take the three-day Exam Preparation course to increase your chance for successful completion.


Successful completion of these two exams, both written and practical, constitutes a “certified” operator by standards set forth in the program guidelines with our accrediting agency.

NWCOC’s program is endorsed by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER). This program is recognized by the following agencies:

ANSI ♦ AGC ♦ ABC ♦ OSHA ♦ NACB ♦ PROV

The Mobile Crane Operator Certification Program meets the requirements of the new OSHA regulation and is accredited by ANSI and therefore meets Option (1): Certification by an accredited crane operator testing organization under OSHA 29 CFR part 1926.1427.
