Industrial Training International (ITI), which specializes in crane, rigging and lifting educational courses, is launching a new course aimed at providing foundation-level knowledge in rigging engineering.

The ‘Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering’ programme is being developed under the guidance and management of J. Keith Anderson, who currently serves Bechtel as its Chief Rigging Engineer.

The programme will provide 250 hours of training, including problem-solving assignments, video instruction from engineers, reading assignments, discussion questions and exams.

Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering will comprise of five required courses and five elective courses. Participants wishing to complete the entire programme must complete the required courses as well as two elective courses. The required courses encompass the core elements of rigging engineering, while the electives allow participants to select subjects more specific to a few skill areas including heavy transport, regulations, and advanced hands-on rigging.

ITI will launch Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering in January 2015.
