What skills and activities do students complete in the LET courses?

  • Most of the Live Entertainment Technology courses have hands-on lab components. Careers in the live entertainment technology industry often require physically laborious activities, especially at the beginning. We mock this in the LET Workforce Program by including activities in class such as: lift, carry, push 50+ pounds; working at heights in Genie lifts, catwalks, and ladders; standing for long durations and walking long distances and up heights; advanced computer software such as Adobe Creative Suite, Computer Aided Drafting software, and video editing techniques.
