(June 22, 2017) – This year, the Specialized Carriers and Rigging (SC&R) Foundation has announced it 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.
The partnerships will enable the Foundation to 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.”
