Hi Friend, 

ITI Partners with Capital Safety Fall Protection

Capital Safety ( and Industrial Training International ( have announced a partnership beginning in 2017, where ITI will host select Capital Safety Fall Protection courses at the ITI Training Center in Woodland, Washington. Additionally, the entire ITI Technical Team went through a "train-the-trainer" program in September of 2016, and is now approved to deliver Authorized Person and Equipment Inspector fall protection training for crane and rigging professionals, and other industrial employees working at heights. 

The fall protection courses utilize the two-story Bull Rigging Structure that resides inside the hands-on skills building area of the Training Center. The Bull Rigging Structure is typically utilized in rigging application training courses to give workers practical, hands-on experience moving loads with chain hoists, in tight, hard to maneuver conditions, much like the environment inside a plant or factory. ITI maintains another two-story Bull Rigging Structure at the Houston, Texas Training Center, with one-story structures in Memphis, Tennessee and Edmonton, Alberta.

Rigging a load is not academic. It is real work with real consequences. Rigging training should be just as real with hands-on experience and tangible results.
