About The Owner

Chris Chiavola – owner/instructor of Crane Training Academy

As an instructor of NCCCO crane operator certification prep courses since 2014, I have taught thousands of people in hundreds of classes throughout the US, for companies such as California Crane School and American Crane School.  Having taught so many classes and having been saturated in the NCCCO test environment for so long has afforded me the opportunity of being able to deliver a program that not only enables people to pass all of their tests and gain certification but also provides them with a functional base of knowledge that they can take with them into the crane.

Crane Training Academy’s curriculum is based on the fundamentals of cranes, setup, operation, safety, OSHA/ANSI regulations and other important factors.  Pass rates of above 90% have been a standard of mine for many years.  These consistently high pass rates are achieved by a teaching method I developed that focuses on delivering information in a clear, concise, and easily understood manner.    Continuous effort is put forth to ensure that our students have the most relevant and current information available. 

Another important factor that I understand, is that not all candidates learn at the same level or speed, which is why the course is delivered in an easy-going stress-free environment so that everyone can perform to the best of their abilities.  Anyone who enrolls in Crane Training Academy’s course can expect to attain their operators’ card and have a good time while doing it.
