ETCP adds more rigging programmes
Wednesday, 7 August 2019
USA - The American Crane & Safety and Reliable Design Services were approved this month to become ETCP Recognised Training Programmes. The courses that participate in the programme present an opportunity for ETCP technicians to get a bulk of their education credits in one place, as these training opportunities count one point per hour of attendance.
“I am excited to say that ETCP now has almost 20 Recognised Rigging Training Programmes that provide relevant courses for those who need renewal credits. Perhaps the most important thing ETCP has brought about in our industry is a sincere interest in training. Adding these two training opportunities only furthers that mission,” says Tim Hansen, ETCP council chair.
American Crane & Safety’s Entertainment Rigging Courses is designed to provide participants with the ground-rigging basic knowledge of inspecting rigging gear, load control, as well as rigging procedures and techniques used in the entertainment industry through a problem-solving workshop. Scott Weldon, company owner, joined the ranks as ETCP recognised trainer this month as well. The Entertainment Rigging course is available online anytime. The courses are also taught onsite for those who would like to attend in person.
Reliable Design’s Advanced Structures Workshop is co-hosted in Dallas on 24 September 2019 with Clark Reder Engineering. Attendees will learn about a wide range of structures used for outdoor events, including, how to deal with forces on systems and a rare opportunity for hands-on time to experiment with loads and their reactions on systems. Elmer Veith and Jeff Reder, along with special guests, will head up this three-day training that will provide 24 credits to those renewing their ETCP Certification. Those who apply before 23 August will receive an early bird discount.
