Daiane Quinlan, Potain's North American sales director, said that these training programs are crucial for Potain to maintain its high standards when servicing customers, as the self-erecting crane market and demand grows strongly in the region.
"We're really pleased to see our U.S. dealers offering tower crane operator certification programs in their own facility or through a third-party partnership," Quinlan said. "Any new customer should find a turnkey solution from the Potain dealership network."
One of the companies praised was the Harrisburg, Pa.-based dealer Stephenson Equipment, which has been providing NCCCO certifications to customers for over 10 years.
"On today's construction site, NCCCO certification is not only important, it's a requirement," said Chad Jacobs, a tower crane specialist at Stephenson Equipment. "It has allowed us to provide full service for our customers with the most advanced lift machinery and also fully train their employees."
The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) is a nationally-recognized certification program designed to ensure that employees working with load handling equipment are well trained and qualified to perform their jobs.
