Optimize Your Investment With Proper Training

Ensuring the safety of a stage, whether mobile or not, is a necessity. It’s a crucial point. A stage is also a significant investment, so it’s important to take care of it and ensure its durability.

For this reason, technician training is essential. They’re the ones who set up and take down the stage, so they need to make it safe and do so using best practices to guarantee its lifespan. Training is always necessary. At Stageline, for example, every model must be set up by technicians who have been trained and certified by the company.

Having Trained and Certified Technicians Means Ensuring:

  • A safe stage, set up compliantly;
  • That the stage is used optimally;
  • The maximal lifespan of the stage by making best use of it;
  • Easy communication between on-site technicians and technical support in exceptional situations. All parties will speak the same language and will be more efficient!

More specifically, training assists in the ability to respond and adapt quickly, and to ensure that everything operates smoothly, even in extreme conditions, as Luke Lohnes of Unites Staging & Rigging explains:

“With wind gusts up to 70 mi/hr, that was the most terrifying storm I’ve seen in my 20-year career. Thanks to the high-wind action plan and Stageline training, I’m proud to say that no one was injured. I think the situation would have been much different if it hadn’t been a Stageline product.” 

What Should Your Technician Training Include?

To be efficient, your technicians must learn to:

  • Understand theoretical concepts and the stage operating steps;
  • Understand the connections between all stage function elements;
  • Know the risks and consequences of the misuse and inadequate operation of the stage;
  • Act responsibly in all aspects of stage handling.

This training should be both theoretical and practical. That way, you can be sure that your stage is in good hands, safe, and durable!


* A mobile stage does not necessarily receive pre-certification by an engineer from the manufacturer. It is important to validate this essential information with your supplier.

A mobile stage is a trailer, a pre-assembled structure, hydraulic equipment, and a stage structure. It is important to properly understand the issues associated with this equipment in order to make it straighforward to use!
