Hi Friend, 

OETIM & ITI VR [Case Study]

"It's actually immersive and at a lower cost."

The Operating Engineers Training Institute of Manitoba (OETIM) is a joint Labour/Management non-profit organization with a primary directive of providing training to people in the crane and heavy equipment industries in the Canadian province of Manitoba. OETIM is affiliated with the Construction Sector Council, Apprenticeship Branch of Manitoba, the Canadian Operating Engineers Joint Apprenticeship Training Council (COEJATC), and the International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE). 

The Challenge

OETIM's mandate is to deliver "extensive training to any individual interested in pursuing the field of hoisting and heavy equipment operation."  As the current workforce in North America continues the process of turning over, the employment and skills gap must be filled by new, skilled operators. According to OETIM Program Coordinator/Instructor Jordan James, "We did not have enough equipment to support all of our students."

It's probably obvious by now, but the big reveal is...

All these companies utilize a learning management system (LMS) as part of a comprehensive training program for their employees! Is your team taking advantage of the benefits of an LMS? If not, learn more here!

ASME Offers Rigging Engineering Training through ITI

The America Society of Mechanical Engineers (asme.org) has provided continuation education units (CEUs) to students who have completed course work in ITI's Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering Program asme(www.riggingengineering.com) since 2015. ASME had audited and approved all courses in compliance with the IACET (International Association for Continuing Education and Training) Standard.  This Program from ITI is the first crane and rigging-related curriculum to be approved by ASME Training & Development and will add to its offerings which cover a wide range of topics including pressure vessels, nuclear, petroleum, and gas turbines to name a few.

Portable Rigging Training Kit [Bookstore]

The ITI Bookstore understands rigging a load is not academic. It’s real work with real consequences. Rigging training should be just as real with hands-on experience and tangible results.

The ITI Model Rigging Training Kit by TactiLearning has everything you need to instruct, demonstrate, and practice rigging and lifting a load using the proper techniques. The lightweight and portable model rigging kit comes with a multi-configurable load box, four tubular loads and the hardware for countless configurations.  This versatile model kit allows for not only an introduction to rigging, but also for exploring advanced rigging concepts.

Manual Development: an ITI Field Service

Load handling and equipment manuals assist the client by developing and incorporating standard operating procedures for their work site. The final document package can be used on the client's intra-web and in printed form to provide guidance for employees involved in standard and critical lifting activities.
