The mobile crane may be the most powerful piece of equipment in the construction industry. With maximum mast heights of over 400 feet and lift capacities of hundreds of thousands of pounds, mobile cranes are essential in building and maintaining bridges, highways, buildings, pipelines and towers. Mobile crane operation requires physical coordination, stamina, focus and concentration.

NCCER offers a three-level curriculum covering topics such as Crane Safety, Load Charts and Emergency Procedures.
