This is an intensive hands-on course, so be prepared to get a little dirty. Expect to handle rigging hardware, chain hoists, cabling, and truss throughout the week. You'll be climbing on ropes and using fall protection equipment, so dress comfortably to be in the warehouse. Fans will be running to move the air and we'll have plenty of water to keep you hydrated.
We'll provide the harness, helmet, and all other fall protection equipment needed, but please bring your own gloves and be sure to plan on long pants and good work shoes.
Water, coffee, soft drinks, and snacks will be provided throughout the day all week, as well as lunch each day.
There is a grouping of hotels just South of Midway Airport where you can take your pick from the standard chains to keep earning those rewards points.
