Our trainers holds numerous qualifications and certifications within the crane and rigging industry, and most importantly truly care about the success of each student.

AICB has two cranes set up at the training facility. Our swing cab crane is a 22 ton Grove, Grove RT 522. Our fixed cab crane is an 8.5 ton Broderson, Broderson IC80 2D. We are fortunate to have hundreds of different pieces of rigging to display and use during select training courses.

We also offer litigation services, critical lift plans and support, and rigging solutions. If it is lifting related, we will be glad to accommodate your needs.



American International Crane Bureau, AICB, was founded in 2008 by nationally renowned lifting expert out of Pearland, Don Jordan. Don has 40 years of experience in the crane and rigging industry and is truly passionate about his work. Don has been involved in the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, NCCCO, for 13 years. This involvement is what sparked the interest for AICB’s creation in 2008.  Don holds numerous certifications and accreditations within the Crane & Rigging Industry.



Don began his experience in the crane and rigging industry in 1973. He began his career as an Operating Engineer. Crane rental, chemical plants, and refineries are where he received his knowledge and experience in this field, while managing to acquire a degree in Organizational Management.

Don received the prestigious honor of 2012 Professional TOP TRAINER Award at the Association of Crane & Rigging Professionals meeting. He has been training for many years and it is obvious to all of his students that he truly cares about the safety and success of each individual’s skills set when entering the workforce.

Don has volunteered in the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators since 2002 where he is and alternate commissioner and chairman of the Rigging Program Management Committee. He is also active in American Society of Mechanical Engineers and the Association of Crane and Rigging professionals.

From Our Students

  • When Dow Chemical decided to certify 15 each mechanics to operate cranes for the Houston Texas Hub sites they looked at many companies for this training. Other companies did not have the years of experience along with the easy access setting for the training needed. I believe the AICB crane operator certification process offered by Don is at the top of their class.

  • After the one day of training my confidence level went from unsure to I’m ready. AICB broke the information down in a way that made it very easy to follow and understand. AICB is very knowledgeable and a great instructor!!!! Thanks to AICB I passed both my written and hands on level 2 test and I’m now working on getting my accreditation in level 2. I highly recommend AICB services.

  • I, along with two of our safety managers, attended the AICB class for tips on training our company’s employees on Basic Rigging and Signal Person training.  The class was convenient to schedule.  The class was tailored to exactly what we needed.  AICB kept the class interesting and always moving forward.  I couldn’t have asked for anything more useful.

  • I wanted to let you know that I appreciate your help during practice and your patience with me. I also want to thank you for the way you kept me cool and calm and built up my confidence during the exam.  I definitely will recommend you all to anyone who is looking to take the exams.  My experience there was awesome!

  • I enjoyed your teaching and how you could read the class and present your teaching to everyone’s level. A lot of the students had way more knowledge about cranes than I did but I was able to keep up with your teaching. I wanted to let you know that I thought the class and the resources that you provided were EXTREMELY helpful.
