For over 20 years, TOMCAT’s annual Hoist & Rigging Workshop has been recognized worldwide as the most comprehensive training course of its kind.

In 2008 in response to the changing needs of the industry and thanks to the input of a team of industry experts, TOMCAT launched a new and improved curriculum.  These changes allowed participants to receive both beginning AND advanced training in their area of specialization: Hoist or Rigging.

Participants can earn 32 renewal credits at each of these ETCP recognized workshops that provide a unique, hands-on learning experience with industry experts. This is the perfect educational opportunity for those new to the entertainment industry as well as veterans of the business.

This year TOMCAT is taking it a step further by partnering with Rope Access Professionals to offer another training opportunity to the TOMCAT U experience with a SPRAT Rope Access Certification class. This will be a 5 day course consisting of four days of training and one day of evaluation.
