May Aerial Lift Classes
Posted On: Apr 22, 2019

We have a pair of lift classes coming up on May 18th and 19th. The classes will take place at SGPS Showrig in Elmwood and will cover the Boom Lift (Condor) and the Scissor Lift. The class typically runs about 8 hours with a lunch break in the middle.

As many of you know, most productions, especially studio productions, and almost all series are requiring a current lift card for operating a lift. I want to encourage everyone who’s department might utilize a lift such as set dressing, grip, electric, construction, special effects, if you anticipate your department needing to use a lift and are not holding a valid card, please sign up and be prepared.

Please fill out the attached application. Be sure to circle the day you wish to attend.

Return the application along with a $50 dollar refundable deposit to Ronnie Martin. You can email the application to:

Or you can send it in the mail or deliver it by hand. Our address is

511 N Hennessey St

New Orleans, LA 70119

Also of note: We need a minimum of 7 people signed up for a class to go forward. If the deadline approaches and we have only 3 people signed up its possible that a class could be cancelled. If it is one of two weekend classes like this one, the people from the cancelled class would be signed up for or put on the waiting list for the class on the other day of the weekend. Everyone would be notified in advance if there is a cancellation.
