CICB Class A Rigger

CICB’s Class A Rigger Training program has been developed with the objectives to assist Organizations, Supervisors, Leaders and Trained Riggers to improve their knowledge of rigging practices, inspection techniques and use of rigging and rigging hardware.

These customized, advanced rigging programs are tailored specifically to the unique needs of the customer.

Typically, 4-5 days long, this training meets all the requirements for qualifying your riggers, with the addition of the complex scenarios unique to your lifts.

The course is math intensive and will assist any organization in maintaining compliance with all applicable regulations and accepted safety standards. This course of instruction provides uniform guidance for an organization to develop and manage an effective and efficient program for management to utilize in the proper use and inspection of rigging and rigging hardware.

The pre-requisite requirements for this program are that candidates must either have passed CICB’s Basic Rigger program or possess documentation from a nationally accredited rigging program such as NCCCO’s Rigger Level I.

The objectives of this dynamic program involve moving loads with non-traditional cranes, often times with space limitations. The course is heavy in math, lifting calculations and team exercises. The information provided in the classroom is reinforced with hands-on application sessions with rigging equipment at CICB’s Houston and Orlando training facilities or at your site. All personnel attending this three-day program will gain significant and useful rigging techniques and skills.

CICB’s Class A Rigger program is particularly useful in industries with space limitation situations typically found in manufacturing, ship building and repair, machinery moving, and offshore drilling and production.

What Past Attendees Say:

“Due to my desire to make a career change, and after exhaustive research, I contacted CICB for my training as a mobile crane operator. Not only did they offer a full curriculum of the training I desired, but also a NCCCO Preparatory Course and testing facility in my immediate area. In my 30+  years of working in the construction industry, I have taken many safety training courses from a myriad of professional trainers. It’s a rarity to find one that is not only knowledgeable in the subject matter, but enjoys being able to share that knowledge with others. I feel that CICB is one of these rare trainers.”
