CIC Examiner Ron Scott, Blackjack Crane Consultants
A business Open House event resulted in the establishment of a one-stop certification test center for CIC and introduced CIC MAN to the northern gulf coast.
Innovation Park in downtown Pensacola unveiled the newly remodeled complex and invited Ron Scott, owner of Blackjack Crane Consultants, to attend and introduce area contractors to the OSHA requirements for operator certifications along with rigger and signal person requirements.
Scott contacted Debbie Dickinson, Executive Director for CIC, to request available material to use as handouts. CIC responded with fliers and a banner. Scott said, "I was very appreciative of the help Debbie offered. The event exceeded all expectations and CIC was part of that success. We stopped counting after 1000 people. The event saw contractors, area business owners, elected officials, and construction workers attending and asking questions. I was pleased Florida State Senator Greg Evers took time from his busy schedule to attend. Senator Evers has been a friend of the crane industry for 15 years."
CIC Man soon became the talk of the crowd, Scott reported, "People would ask specific questions about CIC. I decided to have a little fun and would usually answer with 'I am not sure but CIC MAN CAN!'. I would then use the CIC info sheets that had a picture of CIC Man to answer the questions. It became a buzzword into the evening. You could walk through the crowd and hear people say 'CIC MAN CAN!'." It was an interesting event and shows we should always look for a method to grow CIC. The industry appreciates the common sense, good service and affordable solutions offers to meet OSHA requirements for accredited certification. Our nation's economy and our industry needs a break and CIC Man can help!
