ITI, Lifting Gear Hire Partner Once Again To Offer Rigger Training Courses in Chicago
Lifting Gear Hire (LGH) and Industrial Training International (ITI) are teaming back up once again to offer prospective students and seasoned professionals alike two intensive rigging courses in 2016 to better prepare them today for the rigging challenges of tomorrow.
“As two leaders in the industry, it was a perfect match,” Patrick Clark of LGH said. “It was like peanut butter and jelly. At the end of the day, we are both leaders in this industry. We are in rental rigging as it equates to buying the right equipment from the top manufacturers and certifying it to OSHA regulations. And ITI is the leader in rigging training. So. it just made sense for us to pair up once again. We’re really excited for how the future will unfold. Ultimately, this training I think it will be a big benefit for both companies and it will help keep our customers safe. Of course, we had to pair up once again to offer students this incredibly, extraordinary opportunity to train with two powerhouses in the industry.”
The courses offered include Rigging Gear Inspector Levels I & II and Lift Director & Critical Lift Planning and will be offered twice this year inside of LGH’s 100,000 sq.-ft. rental center. Students who register for either course will be able to observe LGH’s extensive 50,000 piece inventory and witness the behind processes of testing, inspecting, and certifying lifting equipment.
Additionally, students who sign up and complete the Rigging Gear Inspector course will receive a three-year qualification and earn their CEUs. All ITI courses and instructors are LEEA accredited and lunch will be served daily.
“I attended the Lift Director course last year and I think it was a fantastic course,” Jeff Huckaby of the Walsh Group said. “We’ve been working on critical lift plans and the people here were fantastic. LGH was a fantastic host and our instructor from ITI was very hands-on and very thorough. I have nothing but great things to say about it. I highly recommend taking either course.”
LGH and ITI’s mission is to educate riggers on and expose them to the world’s safest equipment to better prepare them for the rigging challenges that lie ahead. Full course details below.
