NCCCO Rigger/Signal Person

The NCCCO Rigger and Signal Person certifications consist of classroom training, written and practical examinations.

CERTIFIED RIGGER LEVEL I

A Certified Rigger Level I can perform simple, repetitive rigging tasks when the load weight, center of gravity, the rigging, and rigging configuration are provided or known by the rigger through experience or on-the-job training prior to the rigging activities. Specifically, Level I Riggers should be able to demonstrate or have knowledge of how to:

  • Inspect rigging before use
  • Identify and attach rigging with basic knowledge of hitch configurations, capacities, and basic knots
  • Recognize associated hazards
  • Signal operations
  • Use various types of rigging equipment and basic hitches and their applications

CERTIFIED RIGGER LEVEL II

In addition to knowing and demonstrating Rigger Level I knowledge and skills, a Certified Rigger Level II can select rigging components and procedures based on rigging capacity. A Level II Rigger can perform the following rigging tasks unsupervised:

  • Estimate load weight and center of gravity
  • Identify lift points
  • Determine and select rigging based on loading
  • Perform pre-use inspection of rigging and lift points
  • Identify and attach rigging with knowledge of hitch configurations and load angle factors, rigging capacities, and load integrity
  • Understand load dynamics and associated hazards

Certified Signal Person

The Signal Person certification requires the candidate to demonstrate proficiency in giving both hand signals and voice commands. The course also assesses the candidate’s understanding of crane dynamics and crane operations per OSHA 29 CFR 1926.1428
