Rigging is an essential component in the construction industry, as every day we move equipment and materials on job sites. The objective of this course is to provide the student with the theory and hands-on practice to rig safely and productively. This course introduces the student to the history of rigging, wire rope, chain, slings, hardware and knots. This is followed by rigging procedures and signaling. The in-class component will involve calculating weights, center of gravity, load charts and sling stress as well as other math modules. The hands-on component will involve inspecting rigging hardware, selecting the right hardware for the lift and using voice/hand signals with the crane operator to hoist various objects. This course is 5 days in duration with 100% attendance required.
