Specialized Carriers and Rigging (SC&R) Foundation will be partnering with Industrial Training International (ITI) and the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) for a series of scholarship grants, which will award ITI courses and NCCCO certificate courses to worthy grant applicants interested in the specialized crane, rigging, and transport industries.
“It’s important that SC&RA has a foundation established to serve the needs of young people and their education,” said ITI President & CEO, Zack Parnell. “ITI is thrilled to be a part of the Grant program, and respectfully challenges any training institution in the world to be a part of this effort so that we can collectively bring opportunity and skills to those representing the future of the industry.”
Graham Brent, CEO at NCCCO, added: “NCCCO is delighted to partner with the SC&R Foundation in this highly worthwhile endeavor. Encouraging those who might otherwise not consider or even be aware of the opportunities presented by the crane and rigging industry is a prime focus for NCCCO. Indeed, securing a CCO certification can be a passport to long-term, gainful employment that will serve them well as they embark upon their careers in this industry.”
