Advanced Rigging is a three day course that includes a theory and written exam. Practical training is then completed including rigging inspection and actual rigging of loads with various degrees of difficulty. The practical training includes:

  • Rigging a load for dead level lift
  • Rigging a load for 90 degree rotation in various directions
  • Rigging a load that needs to be maneuverable
  • Rigging a load with high center of gravity
  • Load turning
  • DriftinG
  • Determining sling stresses
