NCCCO to Use Manitex 30100C for Exams and Testing at ConExpo

A Manitex 30100C, provided by Nevada dealer, Nixon-Egli Equipment Co, will be the official test crane for all operators taking their telescopic boom – fixed cab practical exams on site at ConExpo/CON-AGG, which takes place 7-11 March in Las Vegas. Event attendees can also watch live practical exam demonstrations in NCCCO’s Lift Safety Zone.

This testing is part of the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) “Visit ConExpo – Leave Certified” programme, which will offer new candidates and existing certificate holders the opportunity to take a wide variety of ANSI-accredited and OSHA-compliant CCO written, practical, and recertification exams and receive their results on site at the event.

On all five days of the show, CCO practical exams will be offered for mobile and articulating crane operators. On 8 and 9 March, practical exams will be offered for the Signalperson and Rigger Level I programmes.

Joel Oliva, NCCCO’s director of operations and program development said, “We are thrilled to have the Manitex 30100C boom truck as part of NCCCO’s practical exam offerings at ConExpo.  Having new machines from one of the leading equipment manufacturers ensures our candidates are testing on the most current equipment in the industry.”  

The Manitex 30100C has a 30USt capacity and four-section, 100ft proportional boom. It is suitable for materials handling for pump work, construction or oil field operations. The crane being tested at ConExpo is mounted on a Peterbilt 348, is backed by Manitex’s, comprehensive UPTime customer support.

Randy Robertson, director of sales at Manitex said, “The Manitex 30100C was designed for the kind of versatility that operators must demonstrate in their tests. We are proud to introduce this crane to testing operators and allow them to demonstrate all that it can do.”

NCCCO’s Lift Safety Zone (G-4301in Gold Lot) will feature live CCO practical exam demonstrations and crane and rigging safety best practices with a special emphasis on operating cranes safely around power lines.
