Central Florida To Welcome World Class Crane & Rigging Training Center

Florida Handling Systems (FHS), a Mazzella Company, and Industrial Training International (ITI), have reached an agreement to partner on a new crane, rigging, and load handling training center in Bartow, Florida.

FHS and ITI share a commitment to workplace safety at every level, yet a natural synergy thrives with both organizations applying a solutions based approach at their respective corners of the load handling industry. The centrally located Bartow Training Center marks the second training collaboration between Mazzella and ITI, following the ITI Cleveland Training Center at Mazzella Headquarters.

Courses at the ITI Florida Training Center will commence in the fall of 2019, and are open to all industries.  A complete schedule is available at this link.

In addition to its existing 10 training centers in the United States and Canada, the Bartow location allows ITI to better serve its numerous customers in the Southeastern United States and the Caribbean with the hands-on approach that has become synonymous with ITI curriculum over the past 35 years. 

ITI VP of Customer Success, Jonah Hobson, noted that the new training center is the realization of a long standing organizational goal, and is happy to be working with a familiar partner in Mazzella and FHS, “Speaking with folks connected to load handling activities over the years, the amount of feedback I have gathered in regards to an ITI Training Center in the southeast has been staggering. It has been a priority of ours [ITI] to find the right set of circumstances to grow our training solutions set in the southeast for a while now, and to be able to work with our friends at Mazzella and FHS in launching another unrivaled crane, rigging, and lift planning training location is a better situation than we could ever imagine.”

FHS VP Joe DiCesare added,” We are looking forward to starting this relationship with ITI.  Its not everyday that we are able to team up with such a quality training organization.  With the product lines we offer and the training ITI has available, it’s a win-win for the industrial industry”.
