I received the "just the basics" training 10 years ago in college but didn't touch a light board for years when I accepted a job as a LBO back in April. I have since eeaked my way through my job but the show is a constant running show where I come in do a light check and then run the show. I have no real opportunity to try anything out on the board and get to know it better. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any seminars or quick classes that don't require going back to college to learn all the new consoles and lights. I've looked into a 2 day class in my area through a lighting rental place and it sounds wonderful but costs $250.00 per 2 day class. I'm thinking I might definatly take at least 1 class but does anyone know of any other classes similar to this in the Los Angeles area or anyone who'd just be wiling to sit down with me and show me a few things on a more popular brand of board?
