Northern Light, in conjunction with Just FX and Festival City Theatres Trust, are hosting two pyrotechnic safety awareness and information courses in Scotland during June 2009.
These courses follow on from the success of Northern Light’s inaugural lighting and sound masterclass – hosted with ETC, Martin Audio and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama – in February of this year.
The pyro courses will be held on consecutive days on the stage of the King’s Theatre in Edinburgh and will cover all aspects of storing and operating pyrotechnic stage effects. Delegates will enjoy demonstrations and practical experience of the different pyro types and their uses, as well as learning how to test the effects, store them and manage them safely. Additional modules will include the law, health and safety and risk assessments.
Gordon Blackburn, Hire Manager with Northern Light, said: “A few members of our team flagged up a training requirement to bring themselves up to date with all the current rules and regulations in regard to pyrotechnic effects. It therefore made sense to host a specialist course ourselves and offer our Scottish customers and partner organisations the chance to take part, without having to travel too far to do so.”
The course will run from 9.30 am until 4.30 pm on both Tuesday 23rd and Wednesday 24th June. Cost per delegate will be £95 plus VAT and this includes all equipment, handouts, refreshments and lunch.
