Specialized Transport & Heavy Lift Master Class, New Reference Card, and Rigging Engineering Participation Solidify Partnership between Van Daal and ITI

Marco van Daal, internationally renowned heavy transport authority and author of The Art of Heavy Transport, has collaborated with Industrial Training International (iti.com) on a number of new offerings for 2015. Already an instructor for the Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering Program, specifically the Specialized Transport elective course, Mr. van Daal leans on his 25+ years of experience in the Heavy Lift Industry to provide a unique and insightful look at potential challenges facing personnel in the Heavy Lift & Specialized Transport space. In addition to Mr. van Daal’s involvement in the world’s only Rigging Engineering Training Program, an instructor-led Specialized Transport & Heavy Lift Master Class, and a brand new Hydraulic Platform Transporters Reference Card are now available through ITI and the ITI Bookstore respectively. 

Specialized Transport & Heavy Lift Master Class

The efficient and safe execution of heavy transportation involves specialized load handling equipment and various modes of transport. This course is designed for personnel involved in specialized transport from contract transport organizations and original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to engineering companies and project owners in the oil and gas, power generation, and other plant-environment industries.

The engineering principles of hydraulic platform trailers (HPTs), like self-propelled modular transporters (SPMTs), are delved into along with a variety of other load handling equipment. Heavy lift, jacking and skidding, and load-out (roll-on/roll-off) project case studies are utilized for students to gain a broad understanding of the art and science of specialized transport and heavy lift operations.

Course Subjects

  • Introduction & Terminology
  • Dimensions & Weights
  • Center of Gravity
  • Heavy Transport
  • Heavy Lifting
  • Jacking & Skidding
  • Anatomy of an Accident
  • Maintenance
  • Ro-Ro Operations

The Specialized Transport & Heavy Lift Master Class is a two-day course that is carried out at client locations around the world. For a quote call 800.727.6355 to speak to an ITI Training Solutions Expert or Click here to submit a request for quote form online.
