Attention iBook Users


It has been brought to our attention that some of our books purchased from iTunes are experiencing a problem. This seems to be isolated to apple devices that have been recently updated to ios 9.02. The iBooks application is closing when attempting to view or change the page view using the bottom search bar, or will not launch certain titles at all. We are aware of this intermittent issue and we are working diligently to resolve this with our support team. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Our site will be updated with any updates regarding this issue.



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.
