Alexander Publications created this book in response to the OSHA requirement that all riggers be qualified. Becoming a Qualified Rigger is targeted at experienced lineworkers who need a refresher course on rigging. Use as the textbook for a two-day refresher course with instruction in the first day and a half and testing in the last half of the second day or as a handy reference.
