Basic RiggingĀ Training


Rigging and Signal Person Certification training meets the mandatory requirements of both State and OSHA, which states that all "Signal persons" and "Riggers" shall be 'qualified'. This comprehensive program covers operational and pre-operational procedures for rigging and signaling while meeting NCCCO criteria for both Rigger 1 and Rigger 2.

A Bianchi Instructor will visit your location to provide employee training and testing. Program content can be adjusted to meet particular issues or concerns, and the instructor will personally assist individuals with sticking points. Hoisting equipment and hardware must be available for hands-on training and testing.

Customers receive class rosters and course evaluations. Participants receive a wallet card 'certificate of completion' valid for 3-years and a copy of our proprietary Rigger Training Book.
