After months of hard work, Colorado Crane Operator School is pleased to announce that we are now licensed by the Division of Private Occupational Schools (DPOS)

The Division of Private Occupational Schools (“DPOS”) is a state agency within the Colorado Department of Higher Education that is statutorily charged under the Private Occupational Education Act of 1981, et seq., of the Colorado Revised Statutes, with overseeing postsecondary private occupational schools and its delivery of occupational education.  The mission of the DPOS and Board of Private Occupational Schools is to provide standards for and to foster and improve private occupational schools and their educational services, and to protect the citizens of this state from fraudulent and substandard private occupational schools.”


Our mission has always been to provide you with the knowledge you need to attain and maintain NCCCO certification. And to do so as leaders in the industry.

We have worked hard to position ourselves as one of the best Crane Operator Schools in the nation. This is why we employ only the best certified trainers, with years of industry background. We offer only NCCCO Accredited Certification.  Therefore, our hands-on training is carefully structured to ensure you receive the training you deserve. As such, our curriculum is built on our decades of collective knowledge of the crane industry.

However, the industry is growing and developing every day. Consequently, we endeavor to stay current on the ever-changing and expanding requirements and standards set by OSHA and NCCCO. This is why we have worked to obtain licensing from DPOS as an Occupational School. Their oversight will enable us to work with state-run programs to provide financial assistance. It will ensure that we provide the standard of education and training you need to succeed as a Crane Operator.
