Key Industry Programmes

  • National Rigging Certificate: The NRC is an assessment-based and industry-led full qualification, designed to give riggers recognition for their skills, knowledge and expertise and a means of demonstrating that they've attained a professional standard.

  • Industry Representation: Acting as the voice of the industry to government and regulatory bodies.

  • Trainee Rigger Scheme: Early in 2015 PLASA Skills launched the Trainee Rigger Scheme to act as a structured pathway into the industry for people looking for a career in entertainment rigging. In May 2016 PLASA was delighted to award the first of many certificates to candidates progressing from Trainee Rigger through to full NRC Level 2 achievement.

  • National Event Lifting Certificate: PLASA Skills, with guidance from the NRAG, has launched its latest industry qualification - the National Event Lifting Certificate. Aimed at people already working in other disciplines within the industry such as lighting, sound, video or scenery who carry out rigging tasks including lifting operations as part of their duties but who do not work at height. The 'NELC' is a one day assessment based Level 2 qualification, which also assists employers with meeting their requirement under LOLER.
