Training

As foundation construction equipment and technologies continue to advance at a very fast pace, the need for high quality education and training is more important than ever. ECA recognized that the only way to keep up with the advancing technologies was to develop our own 'in-house' training capabilities. ECA has developed in house trainers and has achieved the status as a BAUER Certified Training Partner. Our trainers are qualified to teach and certify both operators and technicians in several different BAUER training programs.

In addition to our BAUER certifications, ECA is one of the first companies to have a staff member certified to offer NCCCO practical training and conduct certification examinations for both foundation drill rigs (FDR) as well as anchor/micro-pile drill rigs (AMP)

The new ECA Training Center at our Jacksonville, FL branch is now open in order to support the industries growing training needs.

NCCCO Examinations

In December 2018 the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) and the International Association for Foundation Drilling (ADSC) began assembling the top "Subject Matter Experts" to build a certification program for drilling rig operators. After 18 months, the result was the creation of written and practical exams for Foundation Drill Rig (FDR) and Anchor/Micropile Rig (AMP) machines. The ECA Training Center is the leading NCCCO FDR/AMP Practical Exam hose site for operators to obtain their certification.
