This is a 2 day assessment or reassessment and there is NO training involved - only assessment of your competence as a Rigger
OPITO Rigger Assessment and Reassessment (Stage 3 or 4):
This is a 2 day assessment or reassessment and there is no training involved. The instructor will assess if you have the competency to become a Stage 3 (assessment) or stage 4 (reassessment) rigger, meaning you can draw up plans, carry out complicated and complex lifting operations without supervision. You will be required to perform all tasks as in the OPITO Rigger Initial Training course, as well as show understanding of reading lifting plans. This assessment will show the assessor what you have learnt in the field during the completion of your Workplace Experience Logbook.
