Biography

construction-craneCarl Simonye spent his early career in a family-run Road Construction business, serving as equipment operator, foreman, truck driver, and mechanic…typical of small business responsibilities. After completing a BS in Business Administration, he continued in the business as office manager. After the business was closed by the principals, he worked for several years in Production Management in several diverse industries, while at the same time earning an MS in Management. After a few years, he discovered inside work was not his type of work. He had to be around big things that made a lot of noise. His next round of experience was in the drilling industry, which he learned from the ground up (or down), serving again in all facets of the operation. It is here he became infatuated with cranes, in the form of boom trucks. Looking to specialize, his next move took him to a major crane rental company in the Northeast, where he learned all types of cranes, again from the ground up. Looking to further specialize and combine all his skills, he took a position in the training department of this company. Finally, when family matters required he have a presence in Florida, he took a job with an international crane and material handling training and inspection organization, where he rose to the position of senior trainer. He now conducts primarily NCCCO written test preparation and Practical Exams, quoting non-CCO programs on request.
