Riggers require 30 days of rigging activity within the last 12 month period to maintain their annual currency. This can include, physical rigging duties, co-teaching courses, attending symposiums or knowledge based activities.
A rigger’s re-currency will depend upon the number of years they have been un-current.
- 1 to 5 years – Currency can be regained by working with a rigger that is current of the same level or higher. Once complete the rigger supervising the currency will notify the T&S committee that the training is complete and the individual is cleared to rig again.
- 6 to 10 years – The rigger will need to attend a rigger course at their last level of experience i.e. RA1. There will be no cost for the course itself as it is a means to regain currency.
- 10+ years – Required to start from the RA course and work up regardless of previously held rating.
At this time, currency is based on self-monitoring; however it is a requirement to keep accurate logs in the event a request is made by the CSPA or any Canadian Government agency to view them.
