Columbus McKinnon Donates Online Training Seats to ESTAs TSP
2017-09-06

Columbus McKinnon Corp. (CMCO) has donated 100 seats to their popular Lodestar Maintenance Training Course with the full registration fee going to support ESTA’s Technical Standards Program (TSP). You can sign up for the course at tsp.esta.org/cmco.

CMCO, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of electric chain hoist and rigging products, has been involved with the TSP since the program’s inception, providing technical expertise on the Rigging Working Group as well as answering ESTA’s recent call for support by becoming a Visionary level donor. Mike Garl, co-chair of the Technical Standards Council, commented, “CMCO has once again demonstrated their unwavering commitment to safety in the entertainment industry and to the future of the TSP. We thank them for their leadership and support.” 

For more than 30 years, CM-ET has been conducting their one-day motor class to help familiarize entertainment technicians and riggers on safe and proper general maintenance and repair of the CM-ET Lodestar. Students can now get the same level of information they would get if they attended one of CM’s hands-on classes, but without the inconvenience and expense of traveling. Students can learn at their pace and on their own schedule.

This course walks students through the disassembly of the classic model “L” CM-ET Lodestar and topics include: function and inspection of key components, adjusting limit switches, inspecting and adjusting the brake, understanding CMCO specifications and inspection requirements, types of proper documentation, understanding basic electricity and wiring diagrams, performing a load test, as well as general maintenance, inspection and troubleshooting.

At the conclusion of the training, students are tested on the material covered and upon successful completion of the testing, participants will be emailed a certificate of training. Certified ETCP Technicians can earn 4 renewal credits.

ESTA’s ANSI-accredited Technical Standards Program brings together hundreds of subject matter experts from around the world to create standards and recommended practices that increase safety and improve interoperability. The TSP has over 50 published standards, with more in development, that help solve problems and make life safer and easier for those working in the entertainment technology and related industries.
