    Rigger Training Stage 1

    Course Objective

    • The rigger course covers the relevant legislation and regulation and provides an opportunity to practice basic rigging operations following a lifting plan.
    • Delegates will complete a theory test at the end of the stage 1 training program to demonstrate an understanding of the knowledge elements of the course. Performance in the practical exercises in which delegates must take an active part will also be evaluated against learning outcomes.
    • Delegates completing the 1st Stage Rigger course will be able to demonstrate the skills and knowledge to begin stage 2 by passing a theory test and practical evaluations.
    The following points shall be discussed in the course:
    • Know specific regulations required for the rigger.
    • Demonstrate and State the use of hand signals.
    • State function of and inspection requirements for rigging hardware.
    • The correct hitch arrangement for a load.
    • Demonstrate how to do Load Estimation.
    • Demonstrate pre-use inspection and removal criteria of slings and rigging hardware.
    • Know and understand factors that reduce crane capacity.
    • Demonstrate the correct procedures for pick-and-carry operations.
    • Know and understand the classification and types of the wire ropes from their constructions.
    • Know and understand appropriate uses for various types of wire ropes.
    Activities
    • Classroom with Theoretical and Practical Implementation.
