Education created by AV industry experts

Boost Your Skill Set…
Or the Skill Set of Your Personnel

With thousands of live events taking place in the greater Washington metro region each year, event production companies need multi-skilled techs to manage their audio, video, lighting, and staging needs.

Whatever your current experience, from newcomers looking for an entry point, to seasoned industry professionals looking to increase their skills, Capital Stage Techs offer training and education on multiple levels.

How We Help

Event Companies
Most event production companies struggle to find and keep a qualified roster of individuals with multiple skill sets. And once busy season hits, AV staffing companies run into the same problem – they need more qualified techs to support the growing needs of the live event industry.

Think about it this way…you hire the right personnel, and we make them more valuable by providing training classes based on your needs while using your equipment.

Individual Techs
On the job training only goes so far…and takes too long. Get the skills you need to advance your career with our classes and workshops taught by leading AV industry experts with 20+ years experience.

And…with exponentially rising costs of college / university degree programs, you may be searching for an alternative higher education leading towards a more immediate, well-paying career path. Why not the live event production industry?

It’s a Win/Win
Event production companies get a bigger labor pool of skilled talent, and techs get more show calls at higher paying rates.

What Others Are Saying
As a recording engineer specializing in classical and opera recording, I have an opportunity to work with extraordinarily talented and bright young interns. The question always arises, what’s next? How do they make a living? A program like Capital Stage Techs is exactly what they need to enhance their skills and build on their existing knowledge and experience in order work consistently in the entertainment production industry.

There are a lot of schools and programs out there that teach recording and audio techniques, but as I quickly found out, there is so much more to learn to work consistently in live production. I would have definitely benefited from knowing more about lighting, staging and video to get my career going. I’m really happy that Capital Stage Techs is doing just that.

Since I wear multiple hats on any given day, I rely heavily on good staff and freelancers (which are sometimes hard to come by) to fill production needs. When I’m on the road touring, putting the right folks in the right places is crucial to keeping all of my other venues rolling. That’s why I’m excited that Capital Stage Techs is here to give me more production personnel who can become part of my team.
