We are pleased to be able to offer another opportunity to attend this very popular Pyrotechnics Course and to cover operational safety which includes hands-on demonstrations of many pyrotechnic effects. The course is ideal for lighting professionals, students, community theatre technicians, indeed anyone in the entertainment industry who may need to work with Pyrotechnics. The course will provide candidates with an opportunity to keep ‘up to date’ with ‘considered best practice’ and familiarise themselves more readily with new and current regulations, alongside forthcoming UK/EU legislation. The course will also serve as an ideal refresher for Technicians who have to produce certificates of awareness, to keep themselves ‘In date’.

The candidates will also receive a comprehensive set of notes and subject to satisfactory completion of the course, will receive a certificate, signed by the tutor, and automatic enrolment with the Association of Stage Pyrotechnicians registers.

The ABTT Pyrotechnic Safety Awareness Course is a theatrical based, workshop style, training day. The course provides operational safety information from industry experienced tutors via ‘hands-on’ exercises and ‘live firing’ demonstrations.

Topics covered include:

• Workshop presentations and live device demonstrations
