The aim of the course is to provide candidates with knowledge of rigging principles, general hazards and risks of rigging and lifting operations, an awareness of relevant legislation and regulation, and an opportunity to practice basic rigging operations and follow a lifting plan in a safe environment.

Target Group

The rigger stage 1 training is for anyone who has little or no experience in rigging and lifting operations.


There are no prerequisites for the Rigger Stage 1.

The certification is valid for two years. If the stage 2 logbook and stage 3 assessment are not successfully completed during this time the candidate will need to undertake the three-day stage 1 course again.
