Content of the training may provide some of the skills and knowledge required for the PLASA National Rigging Certificate (NRC). Participants will receive a training booklet, relevant technical documentation and certification of attendance at the end of the course.

The course content is excellent and Eric is a great teacher. I am very pleased that A.C. can put on this course, to enable our UK clients to benefit from it."
