NCCCO Rigger II

This program is to certify the professional rigger. It goes a step further that the Basic Rigger I program where a candidate demonstrates the knowledge and skills to select rigging components and procedures based on rigging capacity. Candidates may take the Rigger II exam at the same time as the Rigger I.

Total Equipment Training’s trainers hold both Rigger I and II licenses and are examiners for the NCCCO rigging programs. Their experience and knowledge are evident by our high success rate of licensed riggers. Our comprehensive program will provide candidates with all the information they need to successfully pass the written exam and will provide the time and training they need to confidently complete the practical exam.

RIGGER II PRACTICAL EXAMINATION

The Rigger II Practical Exam requires the rigger to perform a level lift and rigging frame rotation. Total Equipment Training will provide the student with ample practice time to confidently take the NCCCO Practical exam.

Students will be given the opportunity to practice selecting the correct slings, hardware, etc. to execute a level lift. The second task is to apply the correct slings, hardware, etc. to execute a lift and to safely lift the frame off the ground and rotate it 90 degrees while maintaining control. The exams are timed so emphasis will be put on selecting the correct gear and making the lift within the time permitted.
