Basic Rigging Training

Week 1 of Basic Rigging was a success for many different groups of employees in Augusta, Georgia. These students really showed they wanted to learn about rigging for mobile cranes. Some of the things we spent time learning are listed below and pictures of our 8 hr day in the classroom and out in the field.

Special thanks to Steve Hallman for always providing a suitable training area and organizing the training dates. Kudos to you and your company for staying on top of the rigging field and keeping all of your employees trained and ready to rig!!!
