This is a 2 day assessment and is strictly, no training involved, an assessment to see if you have the competency to become an approved level 3 rigger, meaning you can draw up plans, carry out complicated and complex lifting operations without supervision. You will be required to perform all tasks as in stage 1 as well as show understanding of reading lifting plans. It will show what you have learnt in the field during your completion of stage 2- onsite practical experience.
Stage 4 is a re-assessment, same as stage 3.

Valid OPITO stage 1 certificate AND completed stage 2 logbook. OR
A formal letter from the candidate’s employer or senior employer representative stating that the candidate has met the equivalent of the OPITO stage 2 lifting experience logbook criteria. Please email us for more information to see if you qualify to sit the assessment.
