Advanced Rigging
Advanced Rigging
Colorado Crane Operators School COURSE

Event Banner

You will not find a more complete Advanced Rigging training around. The individuals who attend this course will learn techniques and calculations on how to ensure properly applied rigging principles and practices through industry backed methods effectively used by thousands of industry professionals.

Program Overview

This is course is intended for those who have already participated and understand the fundamental concepts of a Qualified Rigger course and the hands-on applications executed during rigging inspections and operations. Persons attending this course will learn the formulas and calculation methods for job planning, load stability along with a strong understanding of crane dynamics and how they affect load stability. Learn how to select hardware and slings to build a bridle, how to build a 4-leg sling hitch that properly carries the load, and how to use rigging tools that allow for load turning and leveling. It is imperative that all individuals who prepare, use, and work with or around hoisting and rigging equipment are well trained in both safety and operating procedures.

Course Overview:

This program includes technical training, hands-on skills training and the required examinations to meet OSHA standards. The course teaches the proper use and pre-use inspection of rigging gear, slings and below-the-hook lifting devices to ensure those who complete training are competent. Discusses lift plan implementation, including reference information, calculations, single- and multiple-crane lifting, critical lifts, and engineering considerations

The course also explains how load weight and center of gravity affect load stability along with stability. Load calculations for multi-crane lifts are presented, along with the application of equalizer beams. The movement of loads up an inclined plane and the line pull required are examined in detail. The module concludes with guidance in the rigging and handling of rebar bundles.

The single most important precaution in hoisting and rigging is to determine the weight of the load before attempting to lift it. At the same time, riggers must also:

• determine the available capacity of the equipment being used

• rig the load so that it is stable and under control during the hoisting process

• make allowances for any unknown factors.

In addition, riggers must be aware of common hazards, factors that reduce capacity, the inspection

and use of slings, and safe practices in rigging, lifting, and landing loads.

Course Topics Include:

  • OSHA Regulations, §1926.1400 and 1910
  • Slings (All Types): Application and Proper Use
  • Rigging Hardware: Application and Proper Use
  • Below-the-Hook Lifting Device Application and Use
  • Softeners and Sling Protection
  • Sling Hitches and Applications
  • D/d Ratio Considerations
  • Sling & Hardware Rating Charts
  • How to Determine Bridle Sling Angles and Methods to Verify Sling Stress
  • Load Weight Distribution
  • How to Calculate and Locate Load Center of Gravity
  • Load Weight Calculations
  • How to Calculate Sling Angle Stress
  • The Fall Zone and Cautions to Personnel


Specific Training Objectives:

  • How to conduct a pre-use inspection of slings and rigging gear.
  • Selection of slings and rigging gear suitable for the job at hand.
  • Applying hitches suitable for the specific rigging task.
  • How to calculate sling tension in bridle sling legs.
  • How to locate and calculate the weight of a load.
  • How to calculate and determine the load’s center of gravity.
  • Use of rigging tools common to the industry.
  • How to use the Riggers Pocket Guide (provided with this course).

Advanced Rigging Training Eligibility

The Advanced Rigging course is for those looking to take their rigging knowledge and skillset to the next level and have already participated in the Qualified Rigger & Signalperson course. Qualified Rigger & Signalperson trainings are held every two weeks and should be taken prior to scheduling the Advanced Rigging Training. For the hands-on portion, attendees will be required to wear all typical job site apparel to include: Long pants, shirts with sleeves and PPE (hard hat, safety glasses, gloves, and work boots).

Advanced Rigging training is for those looking to take their rigging knowledge, ability and skillset to the next level and have participated in the Qualified Rigger & Signalperson course.
