The crane and rigging industry are safer due to the efforts of trainers, who not only teach others how to apply standards, and regulations, but also provide sound, practical advice for improving crane and rigging operations.
Each year, trainers in the crane and rigging field are recognized for having a positive impact on students, the work environment, or the industry by the publisher of Crane & Rigging Hotline magazine and the Association of Crane & Rigging Professionals (ACRP). Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) trainers have received one of the prestigious awards in 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and once again in 2016.
“Organizations are linking learning to performance and the bottom line, understanding that a highly skilled, knowledgeable workforce is critical to achieving growth and success,” said Jerry Longtin, a 2009 Top Trainer and General Manager of CICB. “All of our professionally trained instructors and subject matter experts are not only NCCCO Certified as Mobile, Overhead & Articulating Crane Operators, but are also NCCCO Certified Riggers, Signalpersons, and Crane Inspectors and Lift Directors.”
