    Eye on the Sky: Crane Exam Edition: The Department of Buildings is changing...

    The Department of Buildings is changing the way it tests crane operators "shortly before expected corruption indictments." From now on, the written and practical tests for "lower-level mobile crane operator’s licenses" will be given by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, instead of the DOB. Tests for higher-level licenses for tower cranes and larger mobile cranes, "may eventually" be given by an outside group. Remember, no cheating kids, and in the meantime, always look up.
