The Competent Rigger Train-the-Trainer Course provides students with the teaching tools and methods to provide in-house Rigger and Signal Person training. Our course is offered in our indoor tower training facility, and allows students to learn in a controlled environment under close supervision and tutelage of our skilled instructors. Students successfully completing this course will be recognized as a Competent Rigger Trainer in accordance with ANSI A 10.48.  Trainers will be able to conduct classes, which meet the individual needs of their organizations and customers. Written and practical examinations are administered as to ensure the principles presented in the course have been achieved. Documentation is available to satisfy organization's due diligence and regulatory requirements.

This course is designed for employees who work in the tower industry who have rigging and signaling responsibilities. This course focuses on OSHA regulations, the TIA 1019 - A standard, mathematical theories, and best practices specific to rigging and signaling in the tower industry.  Many rigging courses only focus on rigging and signaling as it pertains to cranes, which fail to address the hazard’s associated with equipment such as synthetic rope, knots and capstan hoists commonly used in the tower industry.   This course addresses both traditional rigging and signaling as well as the rigging and signaling for the tower industry.  This course is comprised of both classroom theory and practical exercises. 

This program is fast-paced and not intended for new riggers or signalers, or those without previous training and experience. This program expects that students understand basic equipment use of: hardware, slings, rope, anchorages, and have ability to solve basic mathematics and trigonometry.
