Navigator Professional Training

TAIT has recently revamped the Navigator University training program to include more in-depth, targeted training sessions. Moving all of the classes to the TAIT home base in Lititz, PA allows for a complete training facility with the equipment necessary for hands-on training in both the Navigator software and the automation products it controls. All the courses offered for Navigator University are ETCP recognized. 

TAIT’s Navigator Control System is a leading platform for control of automation equipment in the theatrical, themed attraction, motion picture, and touring production markets. The Navigator Control System is capable of everything from simple axis moves to complex three dimensional flights, as well as integrating of control to simple input and output and complete show control interaction. The Navigator Control System is constantly expanding to new technologies.

As the Navigator Control System develops, so does the demand for Navigator operators. The goal of the Navigator Professional Training Program is to develop highly skilled and knowledgeable operators by providing familiarization with the tools available in the Navigator Control System. Further emphasis is placed on safety and good practice in use of automation control systems.
