Overhead Crane/Hoist and Rigging Inspector

The Overhead Crane/Hoist and Rigging Inspector Training program is specifically designed to upgrade the existing knowledge and skill levels of all levels of overhead crane/hoist and rigging inspectors. The information provided in the classroom is reinforced with hands-on application sessions with overhead cranes/hoists and rigging gear at CICB’s Houston and Orlando training facilities, at other scheduled locations through the United States, or at your site. All personnel attending this three-day program will gain significant and useful inspection techniques and skills and will leave with a broader understanding and appreciation of the requirements and responsibilities of Overhead Crane/Hoist and Rigging Inspectors.
