Rigging Concept Training | Hoists, Slings, Lifts, Chains & Wire Skills

Learning System: 950-RGB1

The Rigging Concepts 1 Training System (950-RGB1) teaches how to safely move loads of different shapes and sizes using a variety of methods. Major topics covered by this learning system include hoists, slings, lifts, wire ropes, and chain slings. Rigging skills are required in many industries including manufacturing, construction, and transportation, so give your students a head start by teaching them these rigging concepts and applications.

The Rigging Concept training course includes a 1-ton rated gantry crane with casters and component storage, hoists, slings, loads and load fittings to enable learners to replicate various on-the-job load movement applications. Hands-on, applied skills include installing an eyebolt for lifting, calculating crush force, assembling and lifting a load using a two-leg wire rope bridle sling with shackles, and many more! This learning system also includes student learning materials for theory and lab, an instructor’s guide, a student reference guide, and an optional eBook format for online learning. The 950-RGB1 can be used as solid foundation toward industrial certifications and industry standard safety practices are followed throughout.

Hands-On Training with Real World Loads

The 950-RGB1 uses a heavy 1-ton rated gantry and two types of hoists – electric wire rope and hand chain – that can lift industrial size loads. The ample dimensions of the gantry’s frame give plenty of room for learners to lift a load and demonstrate how to move it from one end of the gantry to the other. Other major components include a weight container assembly, steel I-beam, hanger weldment, pipe, eight 25-lb. weights, wire rope slings, chain sling, and more. Learners will use these components to practice skills like: assembling and lifting a load using a choker sling and inspecting a wire rope sling.

Vital Rigging Skills and Concepts Throughout Curriculum

Within the 950-RGB1 curriculum, learners begin studying rigging concepts, load and weight calculation, and load balance before moving onto more advanced topics and skills. Examples of these topics include describing two methods of calculating sling force, assembling and lifting a load using a two-leg wire rope bridle sling and shackles, and sizing and selecting a chain sling. Optionally, this curriculum is available in an online interactive multimedia format that provides includes easy, quick navigation and searchable course content.

Optional Rigging 2 and Rigging 3 Learning Systems

The 950-RGB1 features two important optional add-ons that will expand the learning system’s capacity for rigging topics and skills. The Rigging 2 and 3 Learning Systems (95-RGB2 & 95-RGB3) will cover synthetic slings, industrial cranes, wire mesh swings, fiber rope, and load movement.
