ITI Lives Up to Name with Strong International Presence in Training Courses | Construction News

Industrial Training International (iti.com), a world leader in crane, rigging and lifting educational services, has truly lived up to the company’s name during the final quarter of 2013.  Two divisions in particular, the Showcase Webinar Series (a free, monthly educational webinar presentation hosted by ITI President/CEO Mike Parnell) and open enrollment training courses at the company’s Woodland, Washington Training Center, included a number of participants that added some extra international flavor.

Showcase Webinar Series

The November edition of the Showcase Webinar Series was titled, Terex Presents: Ground Condition & Preparation for Mobile Cranes and featured Klaus Meissner, Director of Product Integrity at Terex Cranes, as well as host, Mike Parnell of ITI.  Mr. Meissner presented his portion of the webinar remotely from his office in Zweibrücken, Germany. Initial feedback on the webinar proved to be positive, as learning points included:

  • Angle of Repose
  • Shear Failure
  • Crawler Ground Pressure
  • Outrigger with Plates

In addition to an international guest presenter, webinar registrants represented 39 U.S. States, 8 Canadian Provinces, and 28 different countries. The worldwide participation clearly shows that the pursuit of crane and rigging knowledge is not limited by any borders.

In the fourth quarter of 2013, Industrial Training International (ITI) had a strong number of international participants in the company’s Showcase webinar series and open enrollment training courses.

The November edition of the Showcase webinar series entitled Terex Presents: Ground Condition & Preparation for Mobile Cranes, featured Klaus Meissner, director of product integrity at Terex Cranes, and host, Mike Parnell of ITI; Meissner presented remotely from his office in Germany. The course covered angle of repose, shear failure, crawler ground pressure, and outrigger with plates.

In addition to an international guest presenter, webinar registrants represented 39 U.S. states, eight Canadian provinces, and 28 different countries.

ITI’s open enrollment courses in December included its Rigging Gear Inspection course conducted at the company’s Woodland, Washington training center. The course included students from the United States, Canada, Brazil, and Russia.

ITI Senior Instructor Bob Schumacher led the course. According to Schumacher, “Having a mix of nationalities in the same class challenges the instructor to create an environment that makes the students feel comfortable and included. Having conducted third party assessments and training globally, it allowed me to work more efficiently with these students from Russia and Brazil. Although the students were engineers and spoke English, I needed to create a balance for both groups when providing technical information, keep the class flowing and ensure our guests understood the nomenclature used. I also offered to answer questions they had and did this during breaks, lunch and after class. The feedback received from them confirmed we were successful and they offered that they appreciated recognizing and respecting their culture.”
