Hi Friend, 

Rigging Engineering Training Starts at Age 5

When does formal training, learning, and practical application in regards to crane operations and rigging truly begin? It can be argued that infants start learning when they stack blocks and then knock them over. Preschoolers are able to put parts and pieces together using toys like Legos and K’nex to build a world of creations. Then there are the really lucky kids who had an Erector set. The Meccano (Erector) Set 5 – 395 piecesErector5in1.png, combined metal strips, gears, connectors, tools, motors and more to create a jumbo crane, a car ramp, a loading shovel, a car ferry, a moon explorer, and/or a traction engine. The first construction sets were actually created by Frank Hornby in England in 1901 under the name Meccano, though it was A.C. Gilbert who coined the name “Erector,” for the construction set. Meccano is arguably the most popular system worldwide that was ever produced.
