State Board of Crane Operators

The State Board of Crane Operators regulates the practice, licensure and registration of crane operators in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in order to safeguard life, health and property.  The Board also registers trainees.  The functions of the Board include investigating, approving or disapproving crane operator applications for those desiring to be licensed in Pennsylvania.


 Please note that neither the Board/Commission, nor its staff or counsel, are permitted to provide legal advice or advisory opinions, including interpretations of the law or regulations, or any indication as to how the Board would vote on any given case or scenario.  You are invited to contact a private attorney or professional organization for advice or guidance.

 The Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs has begun migration to an upgraded phone system for all of its call centers. Because of this transition, there will be outages on September 9th and 10th where the Commissions and Boards will be unreachable by phone. Licensees will be alerted when outages may occur by prompts within the phone system. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
