Technical Issues with IPT Android Releases

IPT is working with Google Play to have all our books listed.  We are very close to having the titles available on your Android devices, but unfortunately there will be a delay. The books have actually been released with the intention of testing our fixed page formatting, but they are actually not available for purchase. We have been in contact with Google to have this corrected. Look for more updates to come, once we can be sure of your satisfaction with our digital versions.


IPT’s iBook Problem Solved-December 14, 2015

Apple released a new IOS update, version 9.2 (13C75) December 9, 2015.  We are pleased to announce that this update has solved the problems many of our customers have experienced with our books.  Unfortunately we had to wait for Apple to rewrite the software and could not correct the problem ourselves.  We would like to thank all of you being patient during this very trying period.  We believe this problem is now behind us as iBooks now comes pre-loaded on all iPads and iPhones when purchased.

If anyone has one of the IPT  books on your iPhone or iPad please take time to download the new IOS 9.2 software.  After the software is downloaded make sure you turn off and restart your device before opening one of the IPT books.  During our testing we encountered varying length of time required  to load a book depending on the age of the iPad or iPhone.  The older devices took much longer to load, probably due to the faster processing power of the newer devices.  During testing, we used 8 different iPads and iPhone, and all of the IPT books load and function correctly.

Again thank you for your patience.


IPT's Crane & Rigging Handbook/Training Manual









There have been a few questions about the contents of IPT’s Crane & Rigging Handbook and Training Manual since the major cover to cover revision in 2005. At that time all the existing sections were reorganized, updated and expanded, and over 100 pages were added. We didn’t stop there. Over the past 10 years these books have been reprinted and updated many times. We try to keep current with new codes and regulations.
