So with this nasty bug going around, some of us might not be able to come into work.
We are able to keep people employed but I can't ask the carpenters to build in their living rooms.
What resouces are there for learning for builders/techs/costumers via computer?
Are there video lists or an online book or what?
Lets start a list and all get better!!

thank you,
Colin

I use a lot of you tube videos to learn stuff. The only problem is sifting through the bad stuff to get to the good stuff. Then I have to figure out alternative products to use because lots of is not available in Australia.

Lots of videos on YouTube for Sketchup, AutoCAD, etc.

For audio, QSC has great online training for DSP programming.

Symetrix has similar training, though not quite as good as QSC's.

Shure has a bunch of online training.

Lots of New Yankee Workshop videos and other videos from woodworkers such as Frank Howarth on YouTube. Frank has some interesting videos on how he organizes his shop and how he films timelapses and stop motion of his builds. There are tons of woodworkers showing off their work on YouTube.

ETC has a ton of content on YouTube and is offering free online training for the next couple months.

There have been discounts for online OSHA-10 and OSHA-30 training. The ESA training is good to start with and the coupon code makes for an incredible value. The ESA is also making available a free PDF download of their core publication, the Event Safety Guide. Then be a sport and join the ESA, the fee is $25/year.

Thanks for the information. I am now a member of the ESA and started the ESAT process. I also started the Dante certification course. I'll add more as time allows.

Hi all!

I'll be streaming a basic networking seminar/training on Monday 3/30 at 2pm EDT(18:00 UTC) if anyone's looking for some free training during their down time.

There will likely be an advanced course as well, as this was originally planned to be a full-day in-person training(with hands on).

More info at training.njewett.com

Hello Again!

Next week's Livestream will be "Drafting a Light Plot with Vectorworks and Lightwright". It will mostly be geared towards an event style plot, but there will be lots of useful info in there for those who are looking for tips on the theater side as well. (Disclaimer - this is more or less me drafting on a livestream, while providing commentary and answering questions from anyone watching it live).

I will be covering basic class & layer structures, lighting positions and instruments, a brief overview of label legends, VWX & LW sync, and a whole lot of info about circuiting and DMX/Cable. Printing & labels will be included if all of the above don't take all the allotted time.

Live on Wednesday 4/8 at 2pm EDT, more info(and topic request) at training.njewett.com

Archived version will be available on Youtube following the event.

*Note* Not an official Vectorworks or Lightwright certified training - simply my workflow and tips & tricks for those that it may help.

We are really looking at having our group go through the ESAT course, but was wondering about how long each of the modules takes to complete? Anyone know about how long the whole training takes to get through?
