Rigging is the art of using cranes and other mechanical or manual load shifting equipment and gear to assemble/disassemble steel structures, move and place precast concrete items, move and place plant and equipment, set up or dismantle cranes and hoists.
Becoming a trainee will provide you with the ability to combine work with structured training. Trainees will be given the opportunity to learn an array of specialist practical skills and knowledge relevant to rigging in the construction industry.
Traineeships require employers to enter into a training contract with the trainee and the registered training organisation (RTO). Employers then work with the RTO and trainee to draw up a training plan. A training plan and contract detailing the training dates and associated units of competency will be provided at the time of sign-up. The employer can discuss with the RTO selection of electives, sequencing of competency units – timing, location and mode of delivery.
There are no entry requirements for this course. To be eligible for a traineeship, applicants must:
- Be at least 15 years of age
- Have completed Year 10
- Be employed in the concreting field of the building and construction industry
This qualification can be delivered in the following ways:

- As well as on-the-job training by the employer component of the traineeship, the RTO will deliver face-to-face off the job training through day release.
