Hi Friend, 

Lift & Move USA - Tampa, Florida [Photo Diary]

There is a skills and labor gap in the United States. As a generation prepares to retire from the trades and craft work, a new generation must fill their shoes. The crane, rigging, and specialized transport industries are no exception, as companies are looking for mechanics, inspectors, riggers, equipment operators and countless other integral roles in the industry. Lift & Move USA is targeted at young people considering their future careers, including students in high school and those attending community and technical colleges. 

ITI participated in the February 14th Lift & Move Event at ALL Crane in Tampa. If you weren't in attendance along with the 400+ high school and technical school students, here is the next best thing!

To test the effectiveness of their VR crane simulator ITI offered to let me —someone who has never operated heavy machinery in their life — spend an hour training with the system and then apply what I learned to operating an actual crane.
