General Information
Automation is used in theatre, musicals, opera, pop music tours, corporate product launches, on cruise ships, and even schools and universities. Live performance, fi lm, and TV creative teams require increasingly sophisticated technical solutions to turn their creative ideas to reality. The demand for skilled automation programmers and operators is higher than ever. There is also increasing need for other industry professionals, working alongside the technology, to have a good understanding of its uses and functionality.

This course is run in collaboration with Stage Technologies, industry leaders since 1994.
