Brian Leister is a Senior Technical Trainer with Columbus McKinnon Corporation, specializing in entertainment rigging, rope access, and hoist maintenance. He has seventeen years of experience as a rigging professional in the entertainment industry and is ETCP Arena certified rigger and an ETCP recognized trainer, with fifteen years of industrial rope access experience as a SPRAT 3 / IRATA 3 Certified Rope Access Technician. The advancement and sharing of knowledge are Brian’s greatest passions.
Our Rigger Boot Camp focuses on the practical skills and tools necessary to work as an entertainment rigger in the live event industry. Each section of this workshop incorporates hands-on activities, to enhance the learning experience.
ESSENTIAL KNOTS, BENDS, & HITCHES
Rope is a rigger’s most versatile and indispensable asset. Like any other tool, it is only as effective as the person using it. This one-day course covers a variety of knots, bends, and hitches essential to the day-to-day activities of an entertainment rigger. Students will learn how to build a variety of mechanical advantage systems for safely hauling and lowering loads.
WIRE ROPE FUNDAMENTALS
No matter what type of rigging you do, wire rope is a critical component to the overhead attachment and movement of loads.
This training will teach you how to identify and select wire rope, as well as how to make safe and effective terminations and splices in wire rope.
Hands-on activities include crimping, reeving splices, Flemish eye, and use of wire rope clips.
RIGGING HARDWARE INSPECTION
This new edition to the curriculum provides practical techniques for inspecting a variety of rigging hardware and aluminum truss, based on the standards relevant to each type of hardware.
RIGGING MATH 101
This workshop combines classroom and hands-on practical exercises to teach fundamental rigging math. This class uses the same standardized formulas, as those provided for the ETCP Rigging - Arena exam. The hands-on component has participants assemble a truss structure and apply the loads. Thereafter, students apply the formulas, after which they will turn on the load cells to compare their load estimations.
Rigging Math 101 addresses the following scenarios:
- Uniform and point loads on determinate and indeterminate structures
- Cantilevered loads.
- Bridle configuration and forces.
FALL PROTECTION AUTHORIZED USER
Falls remain the leading cause of worker fatalities, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Learn how to protect yourself while working at height and stay up to date on the most recent fall protection regulations, standards, and equipment.
This training goes beyond online courses, utilizing practical applications and hands-on activities to demonstrate proper practices and ultimately keep you safe on the job.
- Attendees are encouraged to bring their own fall protection equipment.
- Attendees will also participate in climbing and a rescue scenarios.
SAFE RIGGING TECHNIQUES
From the ground to the beam, participants will learn how to build and use a variety of rigging assemblies for safe attachment to truss and structures. This is where we take all the skills and knowledge learned so far and apply them to real-world scenarios.
