Those qualified in Basic Rigging must know how to carry out work associated with movement of plant and equipment, steel erection, particular hoists, placement of pre-cast concrete, safety nets and static lines, mast climbers, perimeter safety screens and shutters, and cantilevered crane loading platforms.
Those qualified in Intermediate Rigging must know how to carry out work associated with all Basic Rigging competencies as well as the rigging of cranes conveyors dredges and excavators, all hoists, tilt slabs, demolition, and dual lifts.
Those qualified in Advanced Rigging must know how to carry out work associated with all Basic and Intermediate Rigging competencies as well as the rigging of gin poles and shear legs, flying foxes and cableways, guyed derricks and structures, and suspended scaffolds and fabricated hung scaffolds.
The actual fall protection/height safety component of a Basic Rigging course is quite small. Riggers are not trained as part of rigging competencies to use rope access techniques at all. The crossover however between rigging competencies and high level rope access skills are vast; many rope access technicians are also qualified riggers.
