A certified rigger is a person who has been trained and certified to handle and move loads. The level of
certification depends upon the individual’s training, knowledge, skill base, and ability to perform functions
related to the selection, inspection, and proper use of rigging equipment.
This person may be qualified in a craft or trade and carry an occupational title such as iron worker, electrician,
carpenter, millwright, mechanic, laborer, mason, longshoreman, lineman, pipe fitter, boilermaker, and the
like. (The persons described in the categories above will be referred to as rigger even though they carry
another occupational title.)
NCCCO identified the following job duties for Rigger Level I certification. A Certified Rigger Level I can perform simple, repetitive rigging tasks when the load weight, center of gravity, the rigging, and rigging configuration are provided or known by the rigger through experience or on-the-job training prior to the rigging activities. Specifically, Level I Riggers should be able to demonstrate or have knowledge of how to:
In addition to knowing and demonstrating Rigger Level I knowledge and skills, a Certified Rigger Level II can select rigging components and procedures based on rigging capacity. A Level II Rigger can perform the following rigging tasks unsupervised:
As applicable, Level II Riggers will also have a working knowledge of hoisting equipment, winches, jacks, industrial rollers, and similar equipment.
Requirements for certification include the following:
Candidates are permitted to schedule and take both the Level I and Level II written and practical exams at the same time; however, for Rigger Level II certification to be valid, Rigger Level I certification must also be current.
NCCCO certification examinations are designed for persons who have been trained to handle and move loads.
The Certified Rigger Level I Written Examination consists of 60 multiple-choice questions. Candidates are allowed 60 minutes to complete the test.
The successful completion of an NCCCO Certified Rigger Level I Practical Examination demonstrates a candidate’s basic rigging competency.
The Certified Rigger Level II Written Examination consists of 40 multiple-choice questions. Candidates are allowed 60 minutes to complete the test.
