Interactive Program Prospectus for the World’s Only Rigging Engineering Training Program

In February 2014, Industrial Training International (iti.com), announced plans for a revolutionary training program focusing solely on the discipline of rigging engineering. The inspiration for such a program derives from a knowledge gap that applies to engineers that are new to the crane and rigging scene, as well as field-experienced crane and rigging managers who have graduated through the ranks by means of on-the-job experience.

Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering, the world’s only rigging engineering training program, seeks to educate both of the aforementioned student profiles. Set to launch in January of 2015, the curriculum features five required courses and seven electives, two of which are needed to complete the program. 

With over 250 hours of planned curriculum, the breadth and depth of Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering cannot be understated. For those wishing to explore the program further, a unique and innovative solution is now available. 

Interactive Program Prospectus

Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering features 16 of the leading minds in the crane, rigging, heavy transport, and offshore lifting industries as instructors. With the number of course options and moving parts within the program, properly processing the appropriate program information can be challenging. To combat this issue, an on-line, interactive program prospectus is now accessible. The preview contains:

  • Program Overview
  • Videos
  • Program Manager Profile
  • Instructors
  • Accreditation
  • Required Courses
  • Elective Courses
  • Format & Instructional Design
  • Pricing
  • FAQs

Human Performance Improvement Practitioner Joins Rigging Engineering Program 

Industrial Training International (iti.com), a world leader in crane, rigging, and lifting educational services, is happy to announce William (Bill) Rigot as the newest instructor of Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering, the world’s only Rigging Engineering training program.

Mr. Rigot is a Human Performance Improvement (HPI) practitioner who Bill Rigotspecializes in managing risk in technical industries where risk management is particularly applicable. He draws on extensive experience with the Navy’s Nuclear Power Program, and most recently with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Savannah River Site (SRS). At SRS, Rigot held the responsibility of managing training, engineering, and plutonium operations activities. 

CommanaderCommander Rigot served twenty years in the U.S. Navy on a variety of surface ships, including three tours on nuclear powered ships. He was the Executive Officer of the Navy’s nuclear prototype site at West Milton, NY where a staff of 600 instructors provided advanced training for as many as 1,600 nuclear power students under the demanding oversight of Admiral Rickover and Naval Reactors. While on the prototype staff he directly served Admiral Rickover as a Naval Reactors Representative, providing contract oversight for General Electric, the prime contractor.  In his last nuclear assignment, Commander Rigot served as Chief Engineer in USS NIMITZ (CVN-68), completing two deployments and two extensive shipyard availabilities.

Human Performance Improvement (HPI) is the organized progression of isolating and examining the root cause of performance issues, and implementing strategies to improve these issues on an organizational scale. When broken down further, HPI is a blend of three central methods: performance analysis, cause analysis, and intervention selection. Organizations have turned to HPI, sometimes also referred to as Human Performance Technology (HTP), as a driver of improvement in terms of societal, organizational and individual performance. 

The International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI) has developed a set of standards specific to HPI. These standards include:

  • Focus on Results
  • Take a Systems View
  • Add Value
  • Utilize Partnerships
  • Systematic Assessment of Need or Opportunity
  • Systematic Cause Analysis
  • Systematic Design
  • Systematic Development
  • Systematic Implementation
  • Systematic Evaluation

For a complete, detailed explanation of each standard, visit http://www.ispi.org/.

Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering

Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering seeks to serve engineers who come on the crane and rigging scene with backgrounds in mechanical, civil, structural or other branches of engineering, but with little to no formal education when it specifically applies to cranes and rigging activities. Another student profile includes field-experienced crane and rigging manager who have graduated through the ranks to key roles such as lift planner, crane or riggingFoRE E-Book superintendent, or master rigger. These professionals have learned a great deal on the job, but lack the technical engineering education behind load handling activities.

Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering seeks to serve both of these groups, as well as anyone else that can be categorized as a lifting or hoisting authority by providing foundational knowledge in rigging engineering through exposing participants to lifting challenges and provide them with the resources needed to solve those challenges. 

To better understand the breadth and depth of this cutting-edge new program, ITI has made the Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering Program eBook available to all wishing to learn more. The program eBook covers the following topics:

  • Program format and delivery method
  • Profiles on all 14 instructors/curriculum developers
  • A complete program outline
  • Individual outlines for all 10 courses
  • Program pricing options
  • A list of program supporters and customers

The program eBook is available for download in a convenient, easy to use pdf format. For instant access to the eBook you can click here, or visit http://riggingengineering.com

Rigging Engineering Program Scholarships Awarded to 3 ACRP Meeting Attendees

Industrial Training International (iti.com), a world leader in crane, rigging, and lifting educational services, donated three $6,000 Scholarships to the Association of Crane & Rigging Professionals (acrp.net) Crane & Rigging Jeopardy prize pool. The Scholarships grant 50% off of course registration fees for ITI's Fundamentals of Rigging Engineering Program, which entails a total of 10 Courses.

The Scholarship winners include Jeff Roach (American Electric Power), Amanda Jordan (AmericanACRP Members International Crane Bureau), and James "JP" Biondo (Oak Ridge National Laboratory), all three are pictured to the right with ITI Vice President, Zack Parnell on the left.

Roach, Jordan, and Biondo's Jeopardy Teams were among the top finishers in the entire meeting, allowing them to draw from the prize pool first. Crane & Rigging Jeopardy is an annual staple of the ACRP General Assembly meeting; the game is sponsored by The Crosby Group and involves remote handheld devices that allow teams to input their answers to each multiple-choice question posed on the screen.

The ACRP is an association dedicated to improving lifting activities across all industries by educating professional, corporate, and associate crane and rigging instructors. The Annual Assembly was held May 14-16, 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee. The 2015 Assembly is set for Kansas City, Missouri, May 12-15, 2015 and will involve a tour of WireCo World Group's Sedalia Wire Rope Manufacturing Plant.
