Dear Friend,

Here we are in the middle of April. Just like you, ITI has a lot going on this month! One thing that is particularly exciting, ITI is holding open enrollment courses at FIVE different Training Centers this month. Here is the breakdown:


The maiden courses at the newest (for now) ITI Training Center location in Cleveland, at Mazzella Companies Headquarters took place from April 11-15. The training week consisted of  Intermediate Rigging and Rigging Gear Inspector Level I/II Courses. View some images of the students in action  during the Intermediate Rigging Course HERE. 


The first 2016 course held at the ITI Chicago Training Center, located at Lifting Gear Hire Headquarters in Bridgeview, IL, was a Lift Director & Critical Lift Planning Course on April 7-8. Students from five different organizations filled the class.


The ITI Woodland Training Center is as busy as ever, hosting a number of courses this April including:


A Master Rigger Course, along with ITI Qualified Rigger and Qualified Signalperson Exams is taking place this week at the Memphis Training Center on the campus of Barnhart Crane & Rigging Crane & Rigging.
