Entertainment Riggers to Participate in Job Analysis Survey

Publish date:

The Entertainment Technician Certification Program (ETCP) is seeking riggers to participate in a job analysis survey. The results of this survey will help define the knowledge and skills necessary for the safe practice of entertainment rigging. Job analysis is the foundation upon which to build a viable and rigorous certification examination. Volunteers will be asked to answer questions that will help determine the content of the examination. The questions will focus on analyzing rigging tasks based on importance, time spent and consequence of error.

If you are an experienced rigger and are interested in participating, please email Katie Geraghty, ETCP Certification Director at kgeraghty@esta.org with your:

1. Name
2. Email Address (if you do not have an email address but would like to participate please include your mailing address)
3. Please note whether your expertise is in arena-style rigging or in theatrical rigging or both.

The survey will be administered by email in the fall of 2004.

ETCP will set standards for safer working practices and reduce workplace risk in all entertainment venues. Industry experts will develop rigorous assessments, conduct examinations and award credentials to qualified entertainment technicians. ETCP will focus on disciplines that directly affect the health and safety of performers, crews and audiences, beginning with rigging skills and electrical skills.
