Recognized Rigging Trainers

The following individuals have met the criteria to become ETCP Recognized Trainers. Please note that the ETCP Recognized Trainer Program was created to provide ETCP Renewal Credits for ETCP Certified Technicians only. There are no approved ETCP Prep Courses. Instructor techniques and styles may vary, please interview trainers thoroughly to make sure they are appropriate for your group. Some of the trainers are specialists in certain fields, so vetting the trainer would be appropriate.

Participants in professional development training are encouraged to provide general feedback about the trainer or course. Please use the ETCP Course Evaluation Form (PDF).

If you have a specific concern about the behaviors and practices of an ETCP Recognized Trainer or Program you may submit a formal complaint. Please use the ETCP Recognized Trainer Complaint Form (PDF).
