ETC's Eos family of consoles provides power that is elegant, approachable, and scalable. These hands-on training events will give you the opportunity to explore first-hand the features and functions of these powerful control systems.

These classes are taught by lighting designer Kevin Smith. The sessions will include the use of Ion Classic, the new Ion XE and the Element consoles. During the courses you will be introduced to the basics and nuances of this high-level control system and you will leave with more confidence in using your ETC console.

We have recently restructured the Eos training model and there are now 4 levels of training available. These sessions will continue to be free of charge.

In addition Amplify, a new model of training, has been introduced.

Amplify has been developed in response to the demand for ‘the next level of training’.

It introduces the next stage in console training and skills development. Amplify is an intensive

training session that is aimed at improving work flow, teaching new skills and helping people to

become faster, more proficient programmers. Set in a fast-paced environment, Amplify aims to

simulate a real-world programming experience giving attendees the opportunity to test their current

skills and develop new ones as they go. Amplify builds on the knowledge gained from Eos family

training Levels 1 and 2 and takes those core skills and guides attendees through applying them into

their daily programming practices.
