InfoComm International is to host a three-day InfoComm Academy course for staging and live event management at its Hemel Hempstead base from 7-9 December.
Organised in respone to demand from the UK AV live events sector, the course will be led by André LeJeune (pictured), CTS, InfoComm’s rental & staging staff instructor, who has more than 30 years’ experience of staging and presentation.
Chris Lavelle, InfoComm International’s regional manager for the UK and Ireland, commented: “Last year we ran a very successful staging and live events course which focused on technical topics such as large-screen projection and display, audio, lighting, and sets and stages. This year’s course, EVS 212 Staging and Live Event Management, will continue to have a strong technical component embracing all these areas, but with an added project-management dimension.
“This additional focus is the direct result of feedback we have received from AV professionals, who feel that up until now there has been a shortage of educational material on project management that relates specifically to live events, as opposed to fixed installations.”
Among the project management topics to be addressed by the course are project lifecycle, personnel roles and responsibilities, sire surveys, the planning process, event execution, and the control and monitoring of risk.
The course will run from 7-9 December and is priced at £800 + VAT. The InfoComm member price is £550, with members able to use EduBucks for 25% of this amount. CTS-accredited attendees will receive 24 certification Renewal Units (RUs) for their participation.
