Day 1, Monday Nov 9
In this session we will dive into rigging math and discuss how we can use it to quantify the forces in our systems. We will look at more advanced methods of calculating point loads, uniform loads and bridles. We will also spend time looking at cantilevers and the unique challenges they create. These concepts can help solve the majority of our load scenarios.
Day 2,Tuesday Nov 10
During this session we will talk about the origins of truss and how they became what they are.

Day 4, Thursday Nov 12
This session will be an introductory class to fall protection. We will discuss the major concepts in fall protection and how they apply to our industry. We will look at the different types of gear available and consider which might be the best fit for different situations. This is not a substitute for complete fall protection training, but it is an excellent overview.
