ITI Courses To Resume At Lifting Gear Hire This November

If you’re a student looking to join the rigging industry or a seasoned professional looking to freshen up your rigging knowledge, then don’t miss your chance to get trained by two of the biggest leaders in the rigging industry – Industrial Training Institute (ITI) and Lifting Gear Hire (LGH).


ITI has decided to reoffer open enrollment training courses once again at Lifting Gear Hire’s prime facility in Bridgeview, IL, this coming November. The two courses that are open for enrollment are: Rigging Gear Inspector Level I & II and Lift Director & Critical Lift Planning. The first course is scheduled for November 13-15th and the second course is scheduled for November 16-17th, respectively.


In 2015, LGH and ITI joined forces because both companies recognized the importance of preparing the riggers of today for the rigging challenges of tomorrow. This Fall’s courses will mark the fifth occasion in which LGH and ITI have teamed up to offer rigging students and veterans alike the chance to learn from two of the leading names in the equipment training industry.


Since the courses will be taught once again inside of Lifting Gear Hire’s HQ, students will have access to LGH’s 100,000 square foot state-of-the-art Rental Center which provides ample room for ITI classes of varying sizes. Students also get to observe the behind the scenes processes of testing, inspecting, and certifying equipment. All ITI courses and instructors are LEEA-accredited and lunch will be served daily to all students, as well.
