Alberta Section 2 Day ETC Console Training

March 4 - 5, 2018

Online registration is now closed, but a limited number of spaces are still available. Please contact alberta@citt.org if you want to sign up for this training.


CITT Alberta will be holding 2 days of ETC Console Training at the Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary on March 4 & 5, 2018. These courses will be taught by two ETC-certified professionals trainers.

Sunday, March 4, 2018 – Level 2: Enhanced Skills 9am to 5pm

Monday, March 5, 2018 – Expert Topics: Macros, Advanced Magic Sheets, and Effects 9am to 5pm

The Level 2: Enhanced Skills class is open to everyone, although both CITT and ETC strongly recommends those planning to attend the Level 2 course to review Level 1 by completing the online course, Level 1 Essentials for Eos Family Software beforehand. Especially if you haven’t attended any ETC training previously or are new to the console.

ETC-training.pngThe Expert Topics: Macros, Advanced Magic Sheets, and Effects class is intended for experienced professionals looking to enhance their speed, skills, and knowledge. Sufficient prior knowledge of the console is required along with a core competence level. This will be an in-depth class going into lots of detail and if you aren’t already comfortable with the desk you may find yourself falling behind. You will need to register for both days or have previously taken Level 2 training (or have sufficient time, experience, and knowledge of the consoles) in order to attend this course. If you are planning on attending the Expert Topic class please email alberta@citt.org prior to beginning registration to obtain the passcode and to outline your experience if you do not plan on also taking the level 2 class.

All classes will be strictly limited to 16 seats to ensure plenty of hands on time with the console. There will be 2-people, per console, maximum, and no ability to audit the course, so register soon to save your seat. This year the class will feature 4 Gio consoles and 4 Ion XE consoles. As always the software is the same across the entire Eos Family range. ETCP Electrician Renewal Credits will be provided if required.
