Training to become a dogger you will learn skills and knowledge required to safely attach loads to a crane using the correct equipment for the job. You will also learn how to direct crane operators who are moving loads. Dogging is a pre-requisite to basic rigging. Basic rigging is using safety equipment such as fall arrest systems, harnesses, safety nets etc. when working at heights, climbing structures and assembling hoists. Knots and hitches are included in the basic rigging course which is a pre-requisite for Intermediate rigging, where you will learn how to perform demolition and dual crane work.

Our trainer will teach all the skills and knowledge you require to complete the job in a safe working environment. The experience of our trainer in working as a Rigger shows in his training techniques. You can be sure to receive the highest quality, hands on training when completing our Dogging and/or Rigger courses or our combined course.

** As the combined Dogging and Basic Rigging course and the Intermediate Rigging Course are intensive you will be required to undertake extra work outside of the Face to Face 5/3 day course period.

You will be required to read and attempt the exercises within the supplied handbook/workbook prior to commencement of the course and complete homework activities each evening throughout the 5/3 days of face to face Training & Assessment.  If you don’t believe you can undertake this extra work prior to the training and each evening then you should consider doing each of the Dogging and Rigging Basic components as separate units and if completing the Intermediate Rigging Course advise us that you will require a longer time period for training purposes.

Don’t take our word for it, here’s what our previous clients have to say.
