Overhead Crane Inspector: August 12-14 | Master Rigger: September 9-12
Although the Overhead Crane Inspector Course has been a staple of ITI's curriculum portfolio for more than 30 years, the newly added August session marks the first time the course will be offered in open enrollment form through the Woodland Training Center. Overhead Crane Inspector has previously been offered at ITI Training Centers in Cleveland, and Houston, as well as at client locations upon request.
The initial offering in the Pacific Northwest is made possible through a partnership with Thompson Metal Fab, which will host the course on its Vancouver, WA campus.
The course is designed to increase the participants' level of knowledge for inspection of overhead lifting devices, which include bridge, gantry, monorail, fixed hoists and jib wall mounts. Overhead crane inspection training has grown rapidly over the past few years in several industries.
The 3-day course consists of classroom workshops and hands-on inspection sessions. Practical learning is incorporated on overhead cranes and is followed by a written exam and hands-on inspection evaluations, with a 5-year ITI Qualification earned upon passing the exams.
