Practical Examiner Spotlight 

Spotlight on CIC Examiners

Each month we will be spotlighting some of our Examiners
who do exceptional work for CIC.


Cliff Dickinson, Crane Industry Services, conducted 10 practical exams in one day, starting 90 minutes after sunrise and finishing over an hour before sunset. Wow! Cliff credits his customer for having the course ready and candidates arriving at their scheduled time throughout the day.  


Jim Cox, Industrial Training International (ITI), was working recently in Wyoming in a natural resources site. Working around tough weather conditions is par for the course in Wyoming. Jim reports that customers were very pleased that the CIC exam course was set up in less than an hour and required no down time to reset during  the day. Jim says the setup ease made a big difference for them. Thanks Jim for your excellent work and concern for your customers!


Feeling the summer heat? Only about a month ago, Wendell Gray, Crane Institute of America, Inc., conducted practical exams all day with single digit temps all day. Wendell says the operators work in those conditions so he is OK with giving their exams in the cold and snow. Pretty brave for a Georgia boy!
