J. R. Clancy has been approved to become an official Training Provider in rigging, as designated by the Entertainment Technician Certification Program.

J. R. Clancy offers a training program that can assist ETCP Technicians in acquiring ETCP Renewal Credits towards recertification.  Rigging professionals who take courses offered by J. R. Clancy earn one renewal credit per hour of instruction.  The Clancy program began with one course; now, as an ETCP Training Provider, Clancy has expanded its program with multiple courses.  Those interested in taking an industry certification examination may find these courses helpful in preparation.

“We were the first company to offer financial support for the ETCP rigging certification program when it was in its formation stage,” said Mike Murphy, J. R Clancy president.  “We believe in the program’s goal: to create a more knowledgeable industry of highly skilled professionals, and a safer working environment for everyone backstage and onstage.”

J. R. Clancy also encourages ETCP rigging professionals to maintain their certification. In addition to paying the first-time testing fee for the employees of its dealer partners, the company now pays the recertification fee as well. To arrange for payment of the recertification fee, dealers can contact Jenn at J. R. Clancy at (800) 836-1885.

Several programs are now in development; topics and dates will be announced on the ETCP news page. More information about J. R. Clancy is available at www.jrclancy.com.
