Service Truck NCCCO Certified Operator

Crane Tech’s Service Truck NCCCO Certified Operator course helps prepare operators to gain NCCCO certification. Through our specialized knowledge of what it takes to become a Certified Operator, full-time staff dedicated to the certification process—including NCCCO Certified Operators and NCCCO Accredited Practical Examiners—and our proprietary educational materials, Crane Tech can help operators gain these credentials that will set them apart.

Operators who successfully complete Crane Tech’s NCCCO Service Truck certification preparation program are better equipped to make positive decisions regarding safety and control of their equipment. We believe that it’s not how well one does on a test, but how well one can maintain an accident-free site long term.

With active participation in the NCCCO, detailed knowledge of the NCCCO process, our unparalleled industry experience, and excellent quality and customer service standards—why choose any other company?


The NCCCO Service Truck Operator certification is a subcategory of the NCCCO Telescopic Boom—Fixed Cab (TSS) Mobile Crane Operator certification and was developed specifically for the industries that use these smaller machines. This course is available through our On-Site Training program, and will:

  • Cover what’s required to successfully pass the NCCCO Service Truck certification written and practical exams.
  • Provide new knowledge and skills that enhance your safety and work practices on the job.
  • Satisfy OSHA training requirements for construction, general industry, and maritime while providing essential information to keep you and your fellow workers safe.

Major Course Topics Include:

  • Site
  • Operations
  • Technical Knowledge
  • Load Charts


After the preparation and training, Crane Tech will facilitate the written and practical exams required for certification. To be NCCCO certified for a five-year period, candidates must pass the written exam and the corresponding practical exam.

The service truck crane operator written examination consists of a single comprehensive exam with 70 questions. Candidates are allowed 90 minutes to complete the exam. Please note that candidates for the service truck crane operator program are not required to take the mobile crane operator core exam.

The service truck crane operator practical exam demonstrates crane operation proficiency. It consists of five main tasks that increase progressively in the skill level tested. Skills tested are: inspecting the equipment, hoisting, booming, swinging, following hand signals, and combination (multifunction) operations. Crane operation with load and without load is required.

Please note that the CCO Telescopic Boom—Fixed Cab Operator (TSS) and Boom Truck—Fixed Cab (BTF) certifications cover service truck cranes. Operators of service truck cranes who currently possess a TSS or BTF certification are not required to also posses the Service Truck Crane Operator certification. The reverse is not true, however. STC certification is intended only for operators of service truck cranes and not for those who operate larger Telescopic Boom—Fixed Cab or Boom Truck—Fixed Cab cranes. To be certified to operate all TSS cranes, candidates must achieve the full TSS certification (Core + TSS specialty written + TSS practical). To be certified to operate all BTF cranes, candidates much achieve the full BTF certification (Core+ BTF specialty written +TSS practical taken on a boom truck).
