Hello All!
I just wanted to pass some information along to you!!!
The Entertainment Technician Certification Program (ETCP) will launch practice exams for the Rigger – Arena, Rigger – Theatre and Entertainment Electrician certification exams on July 15, 2009. The web-based practice exams will consist of fifty questions and are available from that date forward for thirty-five dollars at Candidates should go to the “Candidates” and then follow the menu to ETCP where can choose one of the three exams.

The ETCP Council understands that there is a certain amount of fear surrounding the exams because many candidates have not taken an exam in quite some time and/or may be unfamiliar with computer-based testing. The fifty question practice exams will provide candidates with a valuable tool for self assessment. There is no application process with the practice exams; so you will be able to take the exam privately at home, at the office or on the road whenever it is most convenient for you.

Thanks Chris. I do trust him and I trust that when we would do this that we work slow enough to ensure safety then and for the rest of the time that those lines are used. His concern is not his skill but the liability that if something is done improperly or something happens, who pays for damages and other losses? This seems to be something that not many people have thought about...I certainly didnt until he brought it up, but I guess I am just more sure that something would not happen because we would be following our experiences and the work already done to match it to.....just some thoughts of mine....thanks though!

The real question Ross is do you feel confidant in his work? would you trust your life to one of "his" fly lines? Sometimes OJT (on the job training) is better than ANY formal training you can get. If you answered yes to both of the above questions then let him do them. If not then....well you know.

What are your thoughts on people not formally rigging trained tightening operating lines on a fly system? We know how to do it properly from riggers but not sure we can fit into the budget but some of the line sets desperately need it. Do you think this is something that should be or should not be attempted. It would be my technical director who has minimal to moderate experience in rigging with no formal education in the subject.

I think what she means by "treating the grid like a wall" refers to the wall that rock climbers use to practice with.
