Information regarding the training
G11 and Rigger course
The Rigger training is all in all 9 days training, the theoretical part is 4 days and the practical part is 5 days. How you choose to do the theoretical part is up to you, your alternatives are:
E-learning theory (click here to read more about e-learning) our e-learning system is built on 4 days of theoretical training and is a documented training. You must have read and understood the theory before you come to us. You can study at your own pace in peace and quiet. It includes modules O 1.1 O 2.2 and O 2.3 5 days of practice.
G11 is a classroom based theory for 3 days. Giving you the module 1.1 and 2.3. This training is a certified training and follows the rules from “Forskrift om bruk av arbeidsutstyr”.
The difference between the theoretical parts is that you need Module 1.1 and Module 2.3 if you want to proceed within crane and lifting. It also demands that we as a company are certified to be allowed to train in this area. with gives this education bit higher status.
The documented training (e-learning) is similar regarding the theory. However, it is important to choose the right one depending on which direction you want to proceed later. If you have plans to work as a mechanic or similar within service and maintenance field, documented training is an excellent choice.
