About NEIEP and the Rigger and Signal Person Advisory Group (RSAG)

In 2012, the National Elevator Industry Educational Program (NEIEP) established a Rigging and Signaling Advisory Group (RSAG) to develop a comprehensive Certified Signal Person and Rigger Levels 1 & 2 (CSPR-1/CSPR-2) examination.

In December of 2014, the CSPR program received a prestigious accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

The process used by ANSI to accredit certification bodies is based on an international standard (ISO/IEC 17011). Adherence to a rigorous internationally recognized accreditation process ensures that the ANSI process conforms to the highest accreditation standard and represents the best practices in accreditation. ANSI is the only personnel certification accreditation body in the United States to meet nationally accepted practices for accreditation bodies.

With the exception of a rigging and signaling program run by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO), NEIEP is the only other organization in the United States to offer ANSI-accredited certification in Rigging and Signaling.
