Hi Friend,


The Future of Training & Work [Infographic]

Technology is a driving force of change. Plain and simple, it changes the way we do things. Take a minute to contemplate how technology has changed the following over the past 50 years:

  • Transportation
  • Communication
  • Health & Wellness
  • Entertainment
  • Education
  • Security
  • Record Keeping

The differences are astounding. Now, two emerging technologies - Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), have the potential to completely overhaul how training and skilled work are completed. Here are the facts:

New Courses Highlight 2017 Calendar

For all 30 years of its existence, ITI has placed a premium on innovation within the crane, rigging, and load handling world. One of the results of this emphasis of pushing the envelope is the ITI curriculum itself, which is unmatched by breadth and depth in the industrial training space. Courses born out of ITI innovation, which are now recognized as the industry pinnacle include:

  • Master Rigger
  • Lift Director & Critical Lift Planning
  • Rigging Gear Inspector Level I - III
  • Crane Assembly & Disassembly Director
  • Accident Investigation: Cranes, Rigging and Material Handling Operations
  • Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering Program (7 Courses)

In 2017, ITI will continue to embody the spirit of innovation by introducing another collection of new courses aimed at filling potential skills and knowledge gaps in the load handling industry.

First, two hard-hitting, one day courses or "bootcamps," that are designed specifically for management and supervisory personnel that oversee employees and teams that conduct load handling activities. 

Another new offering for 2017 is an intermediate to advanced level rigging applications course that focuses on planning for, and utilization of, chain hoists and other similar devices to drift, upright, and turn loads.
