If you tell us where you reside, we will try to help you gain access to the fireworks display company training programs closest to you and will facilitate an introduction. Please note that display companies usually hold their training programs in March and April and are usually too busy later in the year to conduct classes.
The PGI conducts training classes all year long and our programs are posted to our web site as soon as the lead instructors schedule them. Usual costs vary from $50 to $100 and include the purchase of the PGI Display Operator Course (DOC) textbook.
Attend the PGI convention: this may be an option for you. The convention is held in early August and every convention includes a PGI DOC on the Wednesday of the convention week. You can gain display set up experience, attend classes on topics in pyrotechnics, and make valuable networking connections.
