Rigging is the process used in securing materials to be moved by cranes, hoists and various other lifting equipment. When securing a load with slings or chains, there are many factors to be considered including the working load limit of the hoisting equipment, the weight of the load and rigging equipment, and the capacity of the hoist. Rigging is a vital part of any work site where materials or heavy equipment needs to be relocated in a safe and efficient manner.

A rigger’s main duties are to inspect, maintain and install rigging equipment in a safe and compliant way. It is vital that workers involved in rigging activities are trained in both the safety and operating procedures as most accidents occur due to the lack of training of the rigger. Identifying hazards in the workplace is the first step to reducing potential accidents.

We deliver top quality training, providing you with the necessary skills to recognize and control such hazards within the rigging industry. Our highly accredited trainers and assessors have an abundance of knowledge that comes from years of experience, this will give you the assurance and confidence to gain employment across many sectors.

Our basic, intermediate and advanced rigging courses are all designed to give you the necessary training to perform rigging operations in many different working environments including construction, mining, shipyards, and the entertainment industry.

We provide all three levels of rigging at our onsite training facility in Brisbane through written and practical teachings.

Our Basic Rigging course involves rigging work associated with the movement of plant and equipment, hoists, steel erections, placement of pre-cast concrete, safety nets and static lines, cantilever crane loading platforms, and perimeter safety screens and shutters.

A current DGclass High-Risk Work Licence is required as a pre-requisite for this course.

The Intermediate Rigging course will build on your basic rigging skills and include rigging of cranes, conveyors, dredges and excavators, rigging associated with tilt slabs and demolition work, and dual lifts.

A current RB class High-Risk Work Licence is required as a pre-requisite for this course.

Advanced Rigging consists of rigging of gin poles and shear legs, flying foxes and cableways, guyed derricks and structures, and suspended and hung scaffolds. As well as building on your basic and intermediate skill level.

A current RIclass High-Risk Work Licence is required as a pre-requisite for this course.

You can complete all three courses with Advanced Training and Construction within a three week period, where you will gain the complex skills to perform rigging operations across many worksites within Australia. Our highly competent and flexible trainers will assure you have the required experience, both written and practical, to conduct rigging duties at all levels in a safe work environment.

Training is delivered at our onsite training facility in Brisbane. We also offer training at external worksites provided all necessary equipment is available. In such cases, we would conduct an inspection of the equipment that will be used to ensure the safety and conditions of the equipment is ideal for on-site training and meets the WHSQ requirements for assessment.
