Industrial Training International (ITI) has made several announcements this summer – including new training courses, new team members and several upcoming events to mark your calendars.
Innovative New Course
Officially announced in July, ITI is offering a groundbreaking new course: Accident Investigation for Cranes, Rigging and Material Handling Operations.
ITI’s investment in this course is likely more than any education company of its kind has ever undertaken. To create the most realistic accident scene possible, ITI’s Field Services Division intentionally tipped over a Grove TM-180 (18-ton truck-mounted crane) at the ITI Training Center in Woodland, Washington.
As part of the course, three accident scenes are analyzed by the participants. Each scene contains eye witness accounts of machine and rigging data and the load handling task, just prior to the incident. Participants work in investigative teams to determine causation, violations, and corrective actions.

ITI has been very excited to welcome some new faces to the team over the past few months:
Richard Marcotte – Richard joins ITI as the company’s newest instructor. Based in Banff, Alberta, Canada, Richard has extensive experience on various oil sands projects throughout Canada as a boilermaker and steamfitter. He will undoubtedly be a valuable edition to the ITI Training Team.
Jonah Hobson – I am new to the company as well! I have been hired to head-up the marketing department and continue to grow our presence in North and South America.
ITI’s Workshops Division has two exciting training events lined up for the second half of 2013.
- The Oil Sands Lifting Workshop will take place September 4-6, in Fort McMurray, Alberta
- The Power Generation Lifiting Workshop is set for November 6-8, in New York, New York
ITI Workshops are single-track, interactive learning events that bring ITI course content to a specific region, tailored to a specific industry, with a few special guest speakers. Look for 2014 Workshop dates to be announced by the end of the Summer
