"Thanks for coming in yesterday and teaching us. I received a lot of positive feedback from the guys and they got a lot out of the training."
Craig Carlson President/Owner Fall Protection Consulting, Inc.
"As a 45 year member of the Iron workers Union, with most of it dealing with the erection of hi-rise buildings I know firsthand the hazards involved in steel erection activities! Proper rigging techniques and inspection/care are vital to maintaining the integrity of the wire rope and synthetic slings. Your FREE "Did You Know" series training videos cover all aspects of inspection and use of slings. I use them often in my OSHA 30 classes that I teach to my fellow Ironworkers! Keep up the Great work!!!"

"The training was terrific and perfectly timed for OUR group. Everyone agreed that they left with a far greater understanding of rigging than what they walked in with."

"On behalf of the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation, I wanted to thank you and the Rigging Institute for another excellent delivery on our requested OSHA qualified signalperson training. The instruction and training provided were excellent. The instructor (Ron) knew the material and how to deliver it extremely well, and his personal experience adds a great deal to his credibility. In my twenty years of providing and receiving training he is the first to be requested back by my crews."

"I really benefited from the workbook examples for calculating tension. The other examples were also very beneficial and Harley’s knowledge of the subject was outstanding. I thought the course was excellent. Even though I have been around rigging for years, I gained a lot of new knowledge from the course. Facility and instruction was first class."

"I would like to take a moment to say thank you. I received my NCCCO card today after successfully completing both the Certified Rigger I and the Signal Person certifications. I could not have done this without the guidance from Harley Gist. His class was well organized, very informative and also entertaining. Once again thank you on a job well done and keep up the good work."

"I attended the Competent Rigger 2 and Qualified Inspector courses and enjoyed the training. Harley Gist is an excellent instructor with a wealth of background knowledge that he is willing to share. Harley does an outstanding job of interpreting the material for students to understand. Your staff was very helpful and courteous in every way. I would recommend the Rigging Institute to peers and subordinates."
