CONCERNS

Dear customers:

 

We at Island CERTS have seen a troubling trend: Many of our students do not understand the basic dynamics of crane operations but need a rigger and signal card. Because their knowledge of crane dynamics is limited, we can only issue them a basic rigging  qualification card after a one-day class. This does not allow them to use crane signals on the job site.

 

To help our customers and to promote better safety on construction sites, we have decided to make a change in how we do rigging classes. Please note:

 

Day one: Basic rigging. This all-day class will focus intensely on rigging only. Those who pass the written test at the end of the day will be given a basic rigging qualification card. They will NOT be required to take the second day, unless they need to also be signal persons.

 

Day two: Signal person/hand and radio: This class will be for those who passed basic rigging. It will cover hand signals and radio signals and crane dynamics. Part of the class will be held at our shop, where the students can actually practice with a crane operator and real rigging situations to understand crane dynamics. If they pass this class, they will have a rigging and signal person qualification card.

 

Day three: This is advanced rigging for supervisors and those who need to know about rigging, rigging inspections, crane dynamics and need to be able to supervise in the field. It will cover in-depth issues concerning rigging and signals. Only those who have both a rigging and signal person card can enter this class. Min. 4 people to create a class.

 

RECERTIFICATION:
 

We will make it easier to get re-certified. We will issue  those who need to be re-certified a written and a practical signal test. If they pass both tests, they will be re-certified without going back to class. If they do not pass, they will be required to retake the classes they took.

 Note: We will not honor certifications from other companies unless students can produce evidence that they passed both practical and written exams in those classes as required by OSHA.

REVIEWS

Please convey my utmost appreciation to Mikani and DJ, who I interact mostly when-ever I call upon your services.

Mikani handles my concerns in a professional and timely manner. DJ always when he services Cabras ½ OH cranes, reports to me and lets me know he is present and tells me the deficiencies he finds before-hand.

 

I appreciate the prompt and courteous service I receive from your staff.

 

Thank-you.

My name is Mikani Quinata.  I was born and raised in Guam.  I am the 2nd oldest of 9 siblings and a mother of one.  I live in the village of Barrigada, roots from Umatac. 

I started working at Island CERTS Corporation as a receptionist in April 2015. Today, I am the Operations Administrator. I enjoy working for Island CERTS because they make you feel like you aren't just an employee, but a family.  To me, they are the best team on Island, I am blessed to be an ICC member and look forward to many more successful years together.

Thank you to Dave and Nancy Barnhouse and the rest of the ICC Team.

My story begins on the wonderful island of Yap. I come from a big family where everybody knows everybody. I grew up island style, where every day I fished and sailed on the beautiful blue ocean. I have seen and caught some of the most exotic and colorful fish in the sea. Yap is a place where I learned to work with my hands from a very young age. Living in Yap also means that I wasn't exposed to the American way of life until I moved to Guam.

I moved to Guam in 2005, seeking an education at Guam Community College (GCC) with a burning desire to figure out how engines work. I finished one semester of GCC and found that I couldn't quite satisfy my thirst for knowledge. So, I applied at a couple of different places and Ocean Jet club hired me as a Jet Ski mechanic! This job satisfied my sponge-like thirst because in just two years I learned how to tear apart a Jet Ski from top to bottom. Plus, I was able to put everything back together, correctly! I even learned bits and pieces of Japanese from the many tourists that came to have fun on the water.

In 2008 I moved on to bigger and better opportunities. Island Certs Corporation (ICC) took me on as a welder and fabricator. I did not go to school for welding or have much experience. I knew though, that a good attitude and being willing to work hard would help me to grow at ICC. I have been working here at ICC for 12 years and I have definitely expanded my horizons. I am now a welder/fabricator, heavy equipment technician, and a nationally certified crane operator. I am in an apprenticeship program for mechanics. I love and enjoy my job and hope for many years to come.

I was born in Georgia and served in the U.S. Navy from March 1992 until April 2012 as an aircraft mechanic before retiring. I started working for Island CERTS Corporation in Dec 2015 as a shop dog. These days I am a flatbed truck driver, the person inspecting and load testing MSC slings. I am learning to become a crane operator and heavy equipment operator as well.  I work for Island CERTS Corporation because I wanted to work for a company that would offer me the chance to grow and do something different.
