Training

In 2018 Total Training will celebrate 20 years of delivering training specifically tailored to entertainment rigging. In that time we will have delivered over 600 three day rigging training courses and over 7000 people have attended our rigging, work at height, rescue and inspection courses in the UK and overseas.

Total Training operates from the Birmingham premises of the Total Solutions Group and from UK Rigging in Bolton who deliver our courses under licence. To our knowledge Total Training rigging and work at height courses are the only courses of their kind that are run on a regular monthly basis anywhere in the world.

Practical rigging training and work at height training is conducted on a purpose built steel beam structure to ensure participants benefit from training in a controlled environment away from the everyday pressures of the workplace.

Individuals requiring training can join the 3 day rigging course in Birmingham.

Other courses are run for employers in Birmingham or at their own premises for between 4 and 8 participants.

However if you can get a group of 4 or more together we can run a course specially for you.

Courses can be delivered in Birmingham or at the client’s premises.

Contact us if you don’t see what you need. We frequently mix and match course modules to meet client’s requirements.
