This hybrid course consists of 16 total hours of both a virtual, instructor-led lecture and hands-on/practical component and provides students with an overview of OSHA and DOB policies, procedures, and ASME rigging standards with a special emphasis on supervision and coordination of rigging crews and rigging equipment setup. Some topics will include instructions on how to visually inspect rigging equipment, crane setup, load weight, and center of gravity calculations as well as methods of applying proper rigging hitches. Students will participate in hands-on exercises in which they will be responsible for presenting, installing, and using various rigging applications.
Hands-on assessment will be made by the instructor to determine if each student is capable of applying rope knots, inspecting rigging hardware and applying learned rigging lifting techniques and immediately prior to the end of the course students will independently complete a multiple-choice final exam.
Students will need to have access to an internet connection, a computer or tablet with access to a web camera, microphone, and download the Zoom app for the Virtual Instructor-led component of this course.
