Welcome to the Crane Certification Association of America

The Future of Crane Safety


History of the CCAA

 In 1984, the CCAA was founded by eight crane certifiers to establish standards for their industry. The objective was to build the knowledge of crane inspectors through training, testing and certification; and with free exchange of ideas between professionals, to gain competitive advantage and grow their companies. Through a recognized accreditation program, the CCAA helps provide a source of certified professional inspectors for crane owners/operators and clients for their membership
