Student Testimonials

Words of wisdom from former students who've completed the Master Rigger Course at ITI

“As the media reminds us of the high rates of accidents occurring to operators and riggers, we at Cianbro Companies strive to provide our employees with the skills and knowledge of how to prevent an accident. In the past our company has received Master Rigging Training from Industrial Training International. They offer a hands-on approach by providing rigging gear inspection, proper rigging procedures and load control using almost any vertical or horizontal rigging system. The classroom teaching techniques and hands-on learning exercises that we have received from the Industrial Training International group has guided our company in creating our own successful in house rigging training program. The Industrial Training International crew and facilities are truly a world class group, solely dedicated to educating and improving the crane and rigging world.”

The late George ArsenaultFormer Rigging Training Coordinator, Cianbro Companies

“After attending ITI’s Master Rigger training course back in 2006 we knew that the Boilermakers had found the absolute direction in which we should take our rigging training - hands-on, action-packed, and engaging. ITI has since trained-up dozens of Boilermakers, is assisting in the implementation and design of the Local 146 Training Centre, and we are utilizing ITI’s rigging training program - tailoring it specifically for Boilermaker-related rigging. We anticipate using ITI’s program for years to come for our members across Canada...”

“I would like to let you know about the Master Rigging Training course that I attended in January.  It was by far the best course I’ve taken in my professional career. I learned more about rigging overall as well as specific details about questions I had about rigging than I could have imagined. One of the aspects of this course that I feel made it so effective was the hands-on portions of each day. It was a combination of learning the technical aspects as well as gaining “real world” experience in one fell swoop. Les was a great instructor and I believe that he only made the course better by both being able to explain the why, as well show the how, when it came to any question or challenge about rigging that arose throughout the week. I look forward to taking more classes through ITI and have the utmost confidence that they will be as beneficial as the Master Rigger course.”

Rob MillerCSP, OHST, Ameren Services

“The Master Rigger course is the best course I've taken yet in crane and rigging fundamentals. Jim Cox, ITI's Instructor for the course, was as good as it gets for teaching this material. I'm looking forward to my next course at ITI.”
