Those who are already employed as riggers or signalmen will find this information particularly useful on their day-to-day job. Others on the team, however, can also benefit from the information in this course if they work around cranes.
Being a qualified rigger means that you have the ability to properly rig a load for a particular job. What it does not mean is that a rigger must be capable of rigging every type of rigging job. Every load that a rigger deals with have unique aspects that can make the job more or less complex.
You could be a rigger that has extensive hands-on experience rigging different loads, however, you don't have any formalized training in rigging. You would be known as a qualified rigger. On the other side, a rigger that has passed a formalized training and exam is referred to as a certified rigger.
