In 2010, OSHA updated the crane regulations to include additional training and qualifications for signal persons. In response, NCCER has enhanced its existing curriculum to create a signal course that meets or exceeds the current requirements found in the OSHA 29 CFR Part 1926.1400 Amendment.

Topics covered in this curriculum include Communication, Basic Principles of Cranes, and Crane Safety.
