UK - PLASA has launched the National Lifting Event Training (NELT), a training programme for production technicians who use lifting equipment during event production.
Designed in conjunction with the Live Event Production Group with the aim of improving safe working practices of lifting operations, NELT is currently available at UK Rigging in Bolton and Production Services (PSI) in Northern Ireland, with more approved centres expected to offer the programme in 2020.
Nicky Greet, PLASA’s director of membership, skills & technical, comments: “PLASA is pleased to offer this national training for production technicians that has been developed in collaboration with industry professionals on PLASA’s Live Event Production group. The aim of NELT is to standardise good practice and knowledge, making work environments safer and more efficient for all those involved.”
The course will take place across three days under the guidance of expert trainers in specialist facilities. Trainees will complete a series of practical activities and receive guidance on how to establish cohesive and safe working partnerships with NRC riggers. Upon successful completion, candidates will receive a certificate and a listing on the PLASA website.
To enrol, please visit www.plasa.org/nelt. Experience in working in the live events or broadcast industries is recommended but not essential.
NELT is the latest addition to PLASA’s skills portfolio, which also includes the National Rigging Certificate (NRC), a trainee rigger pathway, and a year-round programme of professional development training across a range of business and technical topics.
