To Hold Electrical Workshop

Jerry Gorrell
Electrical Workshop Instructor

Snap, crackle, and pop. If this sounds like electrical wiring and not breakfast cereal, USITT is here to help.

The one and a half day Electrical Workshop being offered on March 29 and 30, before the official opening of the 2010 Conference, will help keep unintended sounds and pyrotechnics out of theatrical electrical systems and facilities.

Workshop material targets basic and intermediate level electricians. The workshop, conducted by ETCP recognized trainers, covers many items in the ETCP Electrician Candidate Handbook outline. It includes the basics of entertainment electrical systems as well as an overview of National Electrical Code and NFPA 70E: Standard for Electrical Safety Requirements for Employee Workplaces.

What you don’t know can hurt you. Additionally, who wants the electrical inspector shutting down a show.

The Electrical Workshop starts on Monday evening so participants can arrive on Monday, saving a night of hotel costs. A lot of misinformation about electrical systems and wiring permeates the ether. Now is the time to get the straight scoop from people with over 100 years of experience in and a multitude of perspectives on the entertainment electrical business.

Now is the chance to get questions answered by ETCP recognized trainers Mitch Hefter. Ken Vannice, Jerry Gorrell, Jared Saltzman, and supporting cast of “hundreds.” Register now for the Annual Conference & Stage Expo and the USITT Electrical Workshop.
