A certified rigger is a worker who has undergone the proper training to become certified…
Riggers and Signal Persons are required to be qualified under OSHA regulations. Becoming qualified is certainly not difficult and at the very least it should be affordable. Associated Training Services take it one step further offering affordable training and testing as either a qualified or certified rigger/signalperson. The question then is which is your best option – being qualified or certified?
The minimum requirement for a rigger/signalperson is holding a qualification compliance card. However, from an employment perspective, being certified by the National Commission for Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) certainly holds more weight. Employers are always looking to hire the best credentialed workers possible, especially when it comes to safety issues. We also don’t know what the future holds for rigger/signalpersons. The law is constantly changing when it comes to workplace safety and the time may come when all rigger/signalpersons will require certification. We have already seen this with crane operators.
Associated Training Services has a comprehensive certification program for rigger/signalpersons. This program:
- Exceeds OSHA qualification standard for rigging and signal persons.
- Includes written and practical training and testing.
- 32 to 36 hours (4 days) depending on number of candidates.
- Certification issued by National Commission for Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO).
- NCCCO Rigging Level One and NCCCO Signal Person Certifications.
Being certified is an important step when looking at your qualifications. Why stop at meeting the minimum requirements when, with just a little more effort, you can gain certification that reflects your knowledge and skills. If you are looking for affordable NCCCO certification, or a qualification compliance card, contact Associated Training Services – we’re leaders in the field of rigger/signalperson training and testing.
