This class is intended to train personnel in the safe operation of rigging equipment.
This is an eight-hour class that will provide the student with the knowledge and skills needed to safely accomplish a rigging job. Also covered in the class will be proper rigging technique and theory, proper tool for the proper job, and sling angle factor.
Topics covered in the classroom are proper rigging technique in the use of rigging equipment, slings, pick point, knots, splicing, block angles, jack points, and center of gravity.
At the conclusion of the lecture each student will be required to pass a written examination.
The practical portion of the class will include a four hour hands-on inspection of rigging equipment and rigging tasks.
At the conclusion of the practical section each student will be required to pass specific tasks set up by the instructor.
