A certified rigger is a worker who has undergone the proper training to become certified…
Did you know that current Federal OSHA regulations say that ALL riggers and signalpersons must be qualified? That means if you want a job in this valuable field, you have to have the right credentials. Associated Training Services offers rigging/signalperson program that exceeds the OSHA requirement and is recognized as one of the best in the crane and lifting industries.
You Can Take It With You
The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) is the gold standard of the industry and ATS offers this certification as part of the available training options. It’s portable, so as long as you renew it every five years it’s good. If you let it expire, you have to take the NCCCO re-certification exam in combination with another ATS program.
So these are your benefits from this option:
- OSHA Recognized
- Industry Recognized
- Portable – goes with the person
- Opens additional job opportunities
- Short term – one week
- Additional credential
Or It Can Be Part On-The-Job Training
There is another way to have this essential credential — as part of your employee training. ATS offers a Rigging/Signalperson Qualification program at the Wisconsin location or by ATS instructors coming to a US site. Both rigger and signalperson subject matter is included, written and practical exams are given, and credentials documenting the training are awarded.
In this case, it’s the OSHA-recognized ATS Qualification, and it is valid for a period of three years. Here are the benefits of this option:
- Group Discounts
- Not portable – stays with the company
- Your location or ours
- Short-term – one day
- Improves safety awareness
Both of the options for Rigging/Signalperson Certification are good. The one that’s best for your circumstances depends on what you need.
