The course includes an intensive training program that deals with theoretical and practical rigging.

Although Eric Porter explains in a simple and clear manner, it is recommended that participants speak and read fluent English. Participants will have the opportunity to visit the MILOS Factory during the training sessions to see the production process from start to finish.

All participants will obtain a certificate of attendance from MILOS after completion of the course.
