For the last 30 years riggers have achieved their core training through the SITAC scheme, which has delivered an exceptional record on safety within the workplace. Consequently this structured independent training has helped us maintain a professional and competent Rigging workforce across the film and entertainment industry. The original SITAC scheme is now integrated into JIGS and formal training is undertaken via the CITB scheme www.citb.co.uk

Riggers may be graded in any of the following job titles:

  • Trainee, Basic or Advanced Riggers
  • Electrical Riggers
  • H.O.D/Master/Supervisor
  • Special Effect Riggers
  • Flying Effects Riggers
