Course Description

Day 1, Wednesday Nov 11
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,T Wednesday Nov 18
During this session we will talk about the origins of truss and how they became what they are. We will look at differences and similarities across manufacturers and the different styles of truss that we have available. We will also discuss the safe use and inspection of truss, and how we can work these concepts into our everyday work-life.

Day 3, Wednesday Dec 2
This class will be a discussion of why inspection and maintenance is so important in our industry. We will explore this from the perspective of current codes and standards and how they help inform us on how we should be inspecting and maintaining our gear and spaces.

Day 4, Wednesday Dec 9 
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.
