Certification of Crane Operators
Committed to Quality, Integrity, and Fairness in Testing since 1995
CCO and our staff were spared with Hurricane Ian making landfall much further south than anticipated resulting in minimal issues for the Tampa area. Our thoughts are with those who were less fortunate. Our Florida office is now open. However, there was a temporary interruption of some services. We appreciate your patience as we work diligently to address the backlog caused while the office was off line. If you need immediate assistance from a staff member, please call our main office line at 703-560-2391 for assistance.
