Construction Crane Operator Certification
An operator certified in accordance with 29 CFR 1926 Subpart CC (Cranes and Derricks) is unable to undergo a re-certification or re-licensing examination due to travel restrictions or social distancing protocols. OSHA will not cite the operator’s employer for allowing the operator to work with an expired certification as long as the employer considered alternative options for compliance, implemented interim alternative protective measures, where possible, and can show good faith in its effort to reschedule and complete the operator’s recertification as soon as possible through a certification or licensing body that meets the requirements of OSHA’s standard.
EICA CERTIFICATION TIME FRAME UPDATE:
When we can resume business as usual, EICA will review current candidate’s status and work out any extensions/adjustments at that time. Updates will be posted on the EICA website
EICA CERTIFICATION TIME FRAME
Candidates must pass both the practical exam and written exam in order to receive any certification. These exams may be taken in any order. The candidate has 14 months after they pass their first exam (practical or written) to pass the consequent practical or written exam. The candidate may appeal the 14 – month time frame with the Appeals Committee for an extension if they feel they have an adequate reason.
