You guys are saving lives

jim cox, mike parnell, Critical Lift Planning, Lift Director & Site Supervisor January 9, 2015

Here at FRPD we value relationship and quality and our tag line says a lot about us, “We Set The Standard”. We are certainly not perfect and we recognise that, but we do our best to follow this tag line and continually look for ways to achieve new and higher standard. That’s why we initially started to work with ITI. 

You may ask, why do I say this? Well, I wanted to pass along some comments about the course we just received from Jim Cox, Critical Lift Planning and Lift Director & Site Supervisor Training.

Jim did a “Fantastic” job to represent ITI and help us at achieving our goals. The instructor knowledge and demonstrated skills as a teacher, coach, guide and provider of information was one of the best I have the opportunity to see. As an instructor myself, I learned new teaching skills, confirmed others and was able to see a text book demonstration of what a perfect instructor should be. Yes I learned about the actual course objective, but as a HSE Manager I will rarely be the one performing the planning required in lifting operation, I just wanted to know about the subject.

Every single person that attended this course give me very good feedback. 10 FRPD employees attended this course, the mix was potentially very challenging with some very seasoned (Construction Manager, Superintendent and Engineer) to some very new people that have never even rigged anything. Jim pulled this off like a pro. The investment in this program is worth every single dollar. We are very pleased with ITI's continued outstanding training performance and we look forward to book our next program.   

Mike, this is a credit to you and your team, you guys are saving lives, you are “Setting The Standard”, we appreciate the knowledge, leadership and passion you have.

The Guys Loved the Training

I want to thank you all for letting us hold the crane and rigging course at our shop. In fifteen years, I have heard many promises of training for the shop guys only to never see one realized. I regret I could not attend the whole course, Jim is a very good trainer, and the guys loved the training. I can tell that morale has increased since the course. Now it is up to us to put into practice the learned things. I hope in the future we can get the guys who could not attend to be trained also.

Jim was great, first instructor I actually wanted to learn from instead of fall asleep.  Material was well presented and at the right pace.

Excellent Job!

Jim was one of the best teachers that I have ever encountered at work, high school or college.  Hands down, by far.  Very thorough and knowledgeable.  Excellent Job! Could have spent a lot more time with Jim. Class could be longer period of time - so much valuable info in a short time.

The training allowed me to gauge how we are doing and I really appreciated your style of training. The reference cards will be a great asset in the field.

The instructor's level of knowledge, motivation and ability to engage students were all extremely high. Course content was perfect. I have attended countless trainings and this training was the best combination of quality, instructor and quality content that I have ever seen.

Both Bob (Schumacher) and Jim (Cox) are excellent instructors. I have learned a wealth of knowledge to bring back to my work place. Hope to continue taking part in some of the ITI courses.

Jim Cox is a great instructor

The time I attended an ITI training class was in Washington, and it was for my Level II Rigging Inspector. The instructor was Jim Cox. Jim is a great instructor. He keeps the class focused on the subject that he was presenting to us at the time. Hope that Jim will be the instructor again. Great guy. I hope to attend another course this fall.

I am always eager to attend an ITI training opportunity

jim cox, Mazzella April 23, 2012

I am always eager to attend an ITI training opportunity. I enjoy the style and flow of Jim Cox's presentations and always pick up another point that I have not ascertained prior. I am a level II and have been for 4 classes. I plan on attending the Level 3 training in July, provided I get my Dad's blessing.
