ITI Opens a Branch in Canada – Needs Instructors

Edmonton, Alberta will be Industrial Training International’s (ITI) operational headquarters of its new subsidiary and Canada Headquarters.  The company will continue to handle sales, marketing, design, and logistics functions out of its corporate headquarters in Woodland, Washington, USA.  Local management, trainers, and supporting administration will work in the Edmonton office and conduct business throughout Canada.

Mike Parnell, ITI President/CEO, commented, “We are excited to be taking this step in our company’s growth. It’s funny – the first Master Rigger Course was actually conducted in Canada over 20 years ago.  We have been training in Canada for a long time, as well as countries in South America, Africa, Asia and Europe.  However, this is our company’s first step in operating outside of the US.”

ITI, a privately-held company, has seen revenue growth of 18% over the last year and has leveraged its exceptional field and office staff to produce new programs in advanced rigging as well as multiple e-learning courses.  The US company has added multiple positions to its team over the last year and is looking to do the same in Canada.

“We plan on hiring several trainers based in Edmonton as well as other cities in Canada.  Also, we will be on the lookout for a highly-qualified person to become ITI Canada’s Managing Director that can spearhead the operation in Edmonton,” Mr. Parnell remarked.

ITI is a world leader in crane and rigging training and consulting and has over 25 years of experience pioneering the industry with courses that are demanded by customers hungry for increased skills and knowledge, as opposed to solely regulation-driven training.  Learn more at
