Rigging Engineering Scholarship - Applications Now Open
Lifting Gear Hire and ITI partner to make this professional development opportunity a reality
Professional development is an essential element for any career path. Lifting Gear Hire wanted to help encourage people working within the crane and rigging industry to invest in themselves to develop additional knowledge and skill. Enter ITI. Last year, ITI started a new training program, Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering, which touts accreditation with the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) and continuing education units approval from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). Starting in January of 2015, a new course was released and by August a student could complete the entire program.
In support of load handling continuing education, Lifting Gear Hire is sponsoring a full program seat (5 required courses and 2 electives) for Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering – a $10,000+ value. Applicants must complete a questionnaire including 3 short essay questions about why they wish to pursue further education and how it can benefit their current work environment. Applications will be accepted until July 31st.
