About the course

The development of new technologies has enabled the construction and assembly of equipment and parts with increasingly larger dimensions and weights, consequently requiring increasingly complex and risky lifting and handling operations. Thus, it is essential that the teams of the companies involved in these procedures, contractors and contractors, deepen their knowledge of Rigging.

This course, taught by TechCon Engenharia, of high competence in the area, provides professionals who plan, execute, supervise or supervise this type of operation the opportunity to deepen their knowledge on the subject, namely in techniques, materials, special equipment and technical standards.

Offshore module installation using goat


The Advanced Rigging Plan Course addresses more complex lifting operations, and prior knowledge is necessary or desirable for a better use by the participant. Thus, we recommend that the student has the following knowledge:

  1. Calculation of wire rope slings for usual lashings at any angle, according to NBR 13541-1;
  2. Calculation of the center of gravity of composite parts;
  3. Resistance of materials;
  4. Dimensioning of shackles and load rings;
  5. Mastery of the use of crane load tables.


If you have any doubts about the application of the course, we will be happy to answer you by phone.
