"Excellent!" Rigging Training for NOAA

rigging training, Joe Kuzar May 24, 2013

I just wanted to pass along my assessment of the rigging training we've received.  Excellent! Highly recommend the training for both deck and engineering departments on the ship.  I sat in for much of the classroom portion of the training about HBB, and was really impressed as to how well the material was received by crew.  Joe also mentioned that everyone was actively able to apply the lessons during the practical part of the course.

Mike, while you were talking to others in the course at your Training Center, your training staff was gracious enough to give me a drifting tutorial - it was awesome.  I might have earned a belt buckle during the Rigging Rodeo if they were my teammates!  

I learned a ton this week and was humbled when I realized how little I truly understand and comprehend about the true world of rigging. Your company, instructors, and rigging training are the absolute best and I have no doubt that you guys will continue to expand and help the industry to be safer and better.

I will highly recommend your training to all of the Coasties I train and I also plan on trying to set up a Level 3 in Yorktown, Virginia for my crew. Once again thanks for making me think harder than I have in years and making me more informed and educated in rigging.

Canadian Boilermakers Rigging Training Thrive with ITI

Boilermakers February 18, 2013

After attending ITI's Master Rigger training course back in 2006 we knew that the Boilermakers had found the absolute direction in which we should take our rigging training - hands-on, action-packed, and engaging.

ITI has since trained-up dozens of Boilermakers, is assisting in the implementation and design of the Local 146 Training Centre, and we are utilizing ITI's rigging training program - tailoring it specifically for Boilermaker-related rigging.

We anticipate using ITI's program for years to come for our members across Canada.

Agrium Embraces ITI Canada Rigging Training

Agrium has completely joined ITI arm-in-arm to educate our personnel in advanced rigging and lift planning practices. I can't tell you how many 'eye-openers' I have seen our people expereience with the hands-on education they are receiving. We are committed to training all of our personnel conducting lifting activities with ITI because the results are that good.

1st Time any Training Course has been Viewed Positively by Management

Patrick Cotnoir, mike parnell, pat dower, abs machining November 21, 2012

We just wanted to let you know that there has been great feedback from the team on the course content and training methodology.  Even our most experienced veterans have learned something.

I can honestly say, this is the 1st time where a training course has been looked at in a very positive way at the management meeting from both our VP & Owner.  The advanced rigging training course made the employees think and use their head when & before lifting which was extremely important.  Our VP has even suggested that everyone in "A-Bay" (machining large parts) should take this course and he would also like to attend.  Our problem is how to make it happen without shutting down the company, but will be thinking about a solution and hopefully we can have you back for another training towards the end of 1st quarter next year.

After 24 years of working in the field, I had no clue there was a science to it…

After 24 years of working in the field, I had no clue there was a science to it, and I had been rigging wrong.

I learned a great deal more than I expected to

Patrick Cotnoir November 12, 2012
I recently completed Rigging Gear Inspector training at Memphis training center. Patrick Cotnoir was our instructor. He did an excellent job. He kept the material interesting and was very knowledgeable in the subject matter. I learned a great deal more than I expected to.
