eBook: Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering
Who We Are We serve a variety of industries, wherever heavy loads are moved.
Introduction The Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering is a comprehensive training program that introduces participants to the science and art of the engineering behind heavy crane and rigging, lifting, and transport activities. These activities take place in a variety of industrial environments. Engineers come on the scene with backgrounds in mechanical, civil, structural or other branches of engineering. However, in most engineering degree programs, students learn little to nothing about crane and rigging activities. Most engineers who enter this ﬁeld are then required to learn on-the-job. Another group of potential participants include a multitude of non-engineers who have graduated through the ranks to take on the roles of lift planner, equipment superintendent, or master rigger. In general, these individuals have learned a great deal on-the-job but lack the formal education that the risky activities they are conducting call for. Purpose and Scope This program was built to prepare key personnel with foundational knowledge in rigging engineering, exposing students to what they need to consider, and provide them with the resources to solve a challenge when it arises. Program Format and Delivery Methods Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering is comprised of ﬁve required courses and ﬁve electives; two electives are required to complete the program. Each course is comprised of three to six modules, with students moving through the following program requirement tasks within each module: • Reading and Media Viewing • Lecture Videos and Presentation Review • Discussion Questions • Assignments and Workshops • Exams Online & On-Demand Students are able to complete the entire Program online and at their own speed – lectures are recorded by subject matter experts. The ﬁve required courses and two of the available elective courses are available online. Hands-on at ITI Training Centers To enhance the learning experience with hands-on training, participants are oﬀered three elective course options at ITI Training Centers. If a participant has completed one of the ITI Training Center Course options in the past three years, that credit can be carried over to the Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering Program.
The Master Rigger Program is a premier ITI course that has been demanded by dozens of industries for nearly twenty-ﬁve years. It has served those who have sought the next level of rigging information, technical knowledge and skill. It exposes participants to a variety of equipment and applications which include multiple-crane lifts, load turning, load drifting with chain hoists, jacking and rolling using mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, incline planes and managing the center-of-gravity in all three axes. This course also meets the new USA Federal OSHA regulation requiring training for riggers. A written and practical exam can be administered to further qualify the riggers. • Inclined Planes Load Control - Center of Gravity • Snatch Block & Winch Systems • Come-a-Longs & Chain Falls • Jacking & Rolling • Rigging Design • Lifting Angles • Compound Loading • Multiple Hitch Systems • Load Turning • Applicable Federal, State, and Provincial Regulations & Standards
Elective Course The original Rigging Gear Inspector Program is designed to build or enhance the skills of the student to become a qualiﬁed, in-house rigging gear inspector. This three-day program includes classroom workshops and multiple hands-on inspection activities. Course Subjects • Wire Rope • Wire Rope Slings
Elective Course The mobile crane inspection training curriculum consists of a multitude of subjects that prepare a participant to conduct comprehensive mobile crane inspections. A three year ITI Qualication is issued to participants who successfully pass the written and practical evaluation. Course Subjects • Inspection Requirements • Safety Procedures • Inspection Components
