Hi Friend, 

NCCCO Certified Lift Director [Flowchart]

Sparked by a number of industry forces, including 29CFR 1926.1400 (Federal OSHA), ASME P30.1 (Lift Planning), ASME B30.5 (Mobile and Locomotive Cranes), the responsibilities of a Lift Director, and in turn, nationally recognized Certified Lift Director status, continues to grow in both interest and importance in the crane, rigging, and load handling industries. NCCCO's Lift Director certification program was developed by a task force made up of experts covering the full range of the crane industry including, but not limited to:

  • Management
  • End Users
  • Trainers
  • Safety Supervisors

So what does it take to become an NCCCO Certified Lift Director?

ITI Partners with Capital Safety Fall Protection

Capital Safety (www.capitalsafety.com) and Industrial Training International (www.iti.com) have announced a partnership beginning in 2017, where ITI will host select Capital Safety Fall Protection courses at the ITI Training Center in Woodland, Washington. Additionally, the entire ITI Technical Team went through a "train-the-trainer" program in September of 2016, and is now approved to deliver Authorized Person and Equipment Inspector fall protection training for crane and rigging professionals, and other industrial employees working at heights. 

The fall protection courses utilize the two-story Bull Rigging Structure that resides inside the hands-on skills building area of the Training Center. The Bull Rigging Structure is typically utilized in rigging application training courses to give workers practical, hands-on experience moving loads with chain hoists, in tight, hard to maneuver conditions, much like the environment inside a plant or factory. ITI maintains another two-story Bull Rigging Structure at the Houston, Texas Training Center, with one-story structures in Memphis, Tennessee and Edmonton, Alberta.

Person of the Week


Larry Shapiro, PE

Principal, Howard A Shapiro & Associates

Co-Author, Cranes & Derricks

Mr. Shapiro comes from a line of crane-expert engineers. He and his brother, Jay, are the sons of Howard Shapiro, the original author of the key industry text, Cranes & Derricks.  Mr. Larry Shapiro earned a BS in Civil Engineering from the University of Virginia in 1978 and has been practicing crane and rigging engineering ever since.

Early in his career, for Harnischfeger, Mr. Shapiro was a stress analyst for the design of mobile cranes and he analyzed critical components for new models and the uprating of existing models. From 1979 to 1983, Mr. Shapiro engineered precast concrete and hyperbolic cooling towers for Zurn Industries. Then, from 1983 on, Mr. Shapiro was fortunate to work with his father, first for Charles M. Shapiro & Sons, and now, Howard I. Shapiro & Associates.

Mr. Shapiro Provides Instruction in the following Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering Course:

Once every three years, the construction leaders gather in Las Vegas for the industry's biggest event. With over 2,500 exhibitors, and hundreds of thousands of attendees, the 2017 version of CONEXPO will be no different. Visit ITI at the show at booth #G71407, and reserve time on one of three Virtual Reality Simulators in the booth by visiting the link below! Hope to see you there!


Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering [Demo]

The Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering Program is a comprehensive introduction to the science and art of the engineering behind heavy rigging, lifting, and transport activities.

This program was built to prepare key personnel with foundational knowledge in rigging engineering, exposing students to what they need to consider, and provide them with the resources to solve a challenge when it arises.
