Run in conjunction with Crosby, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of lifting equipment, the one-day course offers a comprehensive review of best rigging practices and inspection knowledge when using slings and rigging hardware, “making it ideal for those wanting to enhance or refresh their skills,” Certex said.

The seminars are free of charge to Certex customers who purchase Crosby lifting equipment and will be held across the UK. As well as receiving the latest Crosby rigging workbook, catalogue, rigging card and other relevant training material, participants will receive certificates of attendance on successful completion of the course.

This latest initiative coincides with the appointment of new Certex training manager, Adrian Kirkham (pictured). He replaces George Coull, who has retired from the company after almost 20 years’ service.

Kirkham, who shadowed Coull for over a year in preparation for the handover, will continue to provide an extensive portfolio of industry specific training courses that can either be carried out at Certex’s own purpose-built facilities or onsite.
