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.
