NOTE: New regulations go into effect on December 17, 2022 - under ASME B30.5-188.8.131.52 Qualified Riggers (“Certified”) are required when working with any type of Mobile Crane including Crawler Cranes, Locomotive Cranes, Wheeled Cranes and any variations of cranes that retain the same fundamental characteristics of 1 ton or more. Qualified Riggers must pass written and practical examinations (“Certified”). So, if you are involved with rigging for one of the above-mentioned cranes, you should proceed to our Cal/OSHA Title 8 Certified Rigger Level 1 course.
Our California Rigger Level 1 Course provides the necessary training to meet the OSHA, ASME and Cal/OSHA standards of a Rigger. This 5-6 hour self-paced online multi-media course covers OSHA regulations, the use and inspection of slings, rigging hardware, load weight and other areas critical to understanding and operating a safe job site, allowing the rigger trainee to work under the supervised direction of a Qualified Rigger (“Certified”).
This course is recommended for all employees who are working within the fall zone of a load and especially if they are involved in the hooking and unhooking of the load or in the guiding of a load.
Following completion of this course the student may choose to take the Certified Rigger Level 1 Exam to earn the designation of a Certified Rigger Level 1 which would fulfill the requirements of ASME B30.5-2021 and OSHA 5-184.108.40.206 Qualifications for Riggers.
