Newly Updated, Interactive Course Content!
CM-ET has been offering training for entertainment professionals for over 30 years. In addition to our expanded curriculum of hands-on training, we have now developed a host of online learning opportunities, tailored to the entertainment industry.
Who should take the class?
This is a great course for beginners or anyone needing a refresher. For those individuals looking to take the more advanced hands-on CM-ET Motor Certification Technician course, this class is the perfect place to start. It's also a great for ETCP Certified Technicians looking to expand their knowledge and collect renewal credits at the same time.
This two-part online course addresses the following topics, as they relate to CM-ET Classic & Next Generation Lodestars, and Prostars.
- Hoist specifications, benefits, & features
- Safe Handling & Use of hoists
Current Industry Regulations & Standards, from a global perspective
- Inspection and Testing criteria

- Guidance on preventative maintenance
For more than 30 years, CM-ET has been conducting this 1-day motor class to help familiarize entertainment technicians and riggers on safe and proper general maintenance and repair of the CM-ET Lodestar. Students now get the same level of information they would get if they attended one of CM's hands-on classes at their Training Centers, but without the inconvenience and expense of traveling. Get trained online and learn at your pace and on your own schedule.
