About CIC

Crane Institute of America Certification (CIC) was established in 2007 to serve the certification needs of men and women in the lift industry.


Purpose of CIC

The three-fold purpose of CIC is:

  • To assess the knowledge, skills, and abilities of crane operators.
  • To offer efficient and cost-effective certifications.
  • To provide the most “real world” written and practical exams in the industry.    


CIC anticipates returning in 2023

CIC is pursuing accreditation by the ANSI National Accreditation Board (ANAB). As soon as CIC achieves this important goal, we will post the news on this page.
