ETC’s Finnish dealer Studiotec has held its fourth annual Congo group training session in Helsinki. Over the course of three days, Oskar Krogell and several colleagues taught 30 people how to program and run a show, from introduction to advanced level.
“With two students to each desk, users were able to work together while still getting plenty of hands-on time with the desk,” said Krogell. “We’ve held the training around the same time every year since 2007, and it’s always been really well received.”
The Finnish training is just one of a series of regular training sessions run by ETC and its dealers around the world on both the Congo and Eos lines, which includes Congo and Congo jr; and Eos, Ion and Element.
A range of ETC training and support is available free of charge, both in person and online. YouTube clips offer a complete course in lighting control, while forums provide an opportunity to offer and obtain help at any time of the day or night, from both staff and other users.
