Online Rigging Course (Basic, Intermediate, Advanced)

Leavitt Machinery offers an online rigging course for all levels of operators and applications! Whether you’re looking for basic rigging training, intermediate rigging training, or an advanced rigging and slinging course, we can help. Rigging and slinging are commonly used when lifting heavy materials via a crane or overhead pulley system. Without proper training, operators risk dropping loads, damaging equipment/property, or severe injury to themselves and other personnel. Our online rigging programs provide users with the knowledge they need to comply with relevant ANSI, CSA, and ASME standards. This ensures that operators have the tools they need for consistently safe and efficient operation.
