Theater and Entertainment Technology College Certificate Program

Our partnership with Prince Georges Comm. College is known as the T.E.T. Program, which offers a college certificate based on the skills we use in our work. The classes are taught at the college in their theater facility, and we help by providing “lab” courses in our venues, taught by our members and professionals in the business. Typical of the classes we have arranged are:

  • For a Lighting 1080 Class, we brought the students to the Eisenhower Theater in the Kennedy Center, and helped them hang a lighting pipe, complete with cabling and accessories.
  • For a Special Effects 2100 Class we brought in a professional pyrotechnician to lead the students through prep and wiring of a variety of pyro devices and then demonstrated firing each device.
  • For a Theatrical Rigging 1060 Class, we brought the students to the National Theatre and showed them through the flyfloor and grid of our unique “hemp” rigged theater. With the help of one of our riggers, they were able to try their hand at rigging a line set and sandbag counterweight.
