Riggers have a lot of tasks. They choose which pulleys, braces, booms and cables are solid enough for every job. Moreover, they have to know where to connect the chains, hooks and cables so the lifting of a load is safely done.
Becoming a rigger doesn't involve thorough education. The basics include the high school diploma or its equivalent, including high school courses in shop, plan reading, communication and mathematics. After this diploma is achieved, candidates for this profession have to undergo an apprenticeship, which is considered to be the formal form of training. There, programs are usually supervised by committees and union representatives. Apprenticeships last between 3 to 4 years and the apprentices are required to be a minimum of 18 years old.
Riggers are promoted mostly by getting higher wages. Salaries usually count on the company's geographical setting and the worker's abilities, education and experience. In addition, wages range with the individual job. Opportunities are based, somewhat, on the state of the present economy. Nevertheless, the employment prospects for riggers look generally as fair as the standard for all other US jobs throughout the year 2014. Employment possibly will decline in particular industries and zones of the country and for the reason of changes in the methods of construction.
