We are firm believers that training is the cornerstone to safety. At DRS we offer a wide variety of training options. Most options can be done for ETCP Renewal Credits.
We offer a wide variety of training options that are meant to be customizable for your organization. Whether it is just a refresher, or training of new technicians we are happy to facilitate training in the safe procedures and operations of your systems. All on-site training is custom tailored to your venue and the unique challenges that it may present.
Our onsite trainings include:
- Single Purchase Systems
- Double Purchase Systems
- Rigging for a Road Show
- Arena Style Down Rigging
- Arena Style Up Rigging
Our online selections currently include One Shot Training and The Basics.
Our One Shot Training program is a free online resource for all. It is a series of general overviews specifically designed to give individuals a solid start in learning our craft. This option carries no ETCP Renewal points.
The Basics is a series of zoom seminars that can be purchased through Additional Training Offerings. These seminars will meet weekly and cover all of the topics from our One Shot Training program in more depth.
We are also developing a more advanced series of seminars that will go into more advance topics such as the physics behind rigging, understanding mechanical advantage, ANSI Standards, and doing your own Level 1 Annual Inspection. Expected roll out for this is mid 2021.
We have an ETCP Test Prep courses as well that can be taught to your IA Local or employees. This course typically would be either one or two 8 hour days where participants would take a practice exam at the beginning of the course, and use that to gauge what areas participants need us to focus on. We would then spend the majority of the course going over the areas that participants struggled with on the practice exam. We would finish the course with a 2nd practice exam to show participants progress and give them a self-confidence boost. This course would be limited to participants who are eligible to take the exam and participants that are expected to become eligible in the next 6 months. There would be a 20 person cap on the course.
We also offer Academic Guest Lectures (both in person and via zoom). If you are a college professor and you would like us to talk to your class, don’t be shy. We love talking to future technicians and will take every opportunity to bundle it into one of our other services (we also are happy to do it as a stand-alone service).
