Competent Tower Rigging


Competent Rigging Course – 1 Day – $695


The major tower companies (including Crown Castle, SBA and others) are requiring a Competent Tower Rigger on all job sites as per ASSE/ANSI 10.48-2016 and will be auditing sites to insure the existence and implementation of written rigging plans on Class I, II, III, and IV construction projects. Rigging for construction can consist of, but is not limited to; tower modifications, lines & antenna work, maintenance work, and new build construction. The Comtrain Competent Tower Rigging Course addresses (OSHA 29 CFR 1926, ASSE/ANSI 10.48-2016, ANSI/TIA ASME B30.9 and B30.26) rigging operations in which the loads are less than 1000 lbs. (Certification is valid for 2 years)

Part 1 is an intense day of classroom instruction and demonstrations that will cover rigging equipment selection, rigging charts and calculations, load weights, center of gravity, blocks, angles and will provide a solid overview of basic rigging knowledge and rigging plan preparation.

Part 2 is hands-on and introduces each participant to the physical experience of using proper rigging techniques and equipment to perform a competent lift.
