PLASA Launches NELT, Training for Production Professionals

PLASA, association for the live entertainment technology industry, has launched National Lifting Event Training (NELT), a training program for production technicians who use lifting equipment during event production.

NELT has been carefully designed in conjunction with the Live Event Production Group with the aim of improving safe working practices of lifting operations. Some experience working in the live events or broadcast industries is recommended but not essential.

The course will take place across three days under the guidance of expert trainers in specialist facilities where the 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, the candidate will receive a certificate and a listing on the PLASA website, which will be viewed by prospect employers, venues, and clients.

NELT is a valuable addition to PLASA's skills portfolio which also offers the widely recognized National Rigging Certificate (NRC), a trainee rigger pathway, and a year-round program of professional development training across a range of business and technical topics.

Nicky Greet, PLASA's director of membership, skills and 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 standardize good practice and knowledge, making work environments safer and more efficient for all those involved."

NELT is currently available at UK Rigging in Bolton and Production Services (PSI) in Northern Ireland, with more approved centers expected next year. Candidates must first enroll on the PLASA website at www.plasa.org/nelt.
