Online CCO Verification System Proving Itself a Success

Less than six months after becoming available, more than 1,200 registrations from over 800 organizations have been received to use NCCCO's “Verify CCO Online” or “VCO” system. The VCO system allows the credentials of CCO-certified individuals to be instantly verified via the Internet and can be accessed at no cost from the NCCCO home page or using a special address,

The VCO system has already proven to be invaluable, not only to major industrial and construction crane users, but also to federal, state and local government representatives, including OSHA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Users from 48 states and the District of Columbia have registered to use the VCO system.

VCO can be accessed at any time from nearly any device with an Internet connection, including computers, smartphones, and tablets. NCCCO issues different cards for operators, riggers and/or signalpersons, and crane inspectors (with separate certification numbers and expiration dates), but entering any valid certification number brings up all associated certifications and their expiration dates.

While not a replacement for COO cards, the system is particularly valuable for checking their validity and accuracy when the actual card is not available. This feature helps employers maintain up-to-date records of their employees and ensure their compliance with all current and future governmental requirements.
