Training from the Comfort of your Own Home – CM’s Online Lodestar Maintenance Training

CM Hoist School is approaching—are you registered and ready for one of the best training events of the year? A great program to enroll in prior to the CM Hoist School can be completed without the expense of travel. Even if you can’t make it this March, this proven digital training course is a great resource and perfect place to start your journey into hoist maintenance for all entertainment technicians and riggers. The CM Online Lodestar Maintenance Training course is packed with the information taught in CM’s proven one-day motor class and can be completed at your own pace and on your own schedule. Even better yet, we’re offering an incredible promotion that earns you a FREE license key to this digital training (see below for full details).

Let’s face it. It’s not always easy to get to a training event along with the million other responsibilities, projects, and jobs we all take on. It costs money, requires travel, and if you are an independent contractor or freelancer, the cost is your responsibility. This program extends a valuable training resource to busy technicians, and successful completion is rewarded with a Certificate of Training and 4 renewal credits for certified ETCP Technicians!

What does the CM Online Lodestar Maintenance Training cover?

This program walks students through the disassembly of the classic CM Lodestar Model L chain hoist and covers the following topics:

  • 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
  • General maintenance, inspection, and troubleshooting

Once you complete the course, a test will be given on the material covered which when completed will earn you renewal ETCP credits.


Be a step ahead at CM Hoist School with the help of this training

Our annual hoist and maintenance training gives students the invaluable hands-on assistance and guidance from CM’s world-class trainer, Dave Carmack, but attendees will be one step ahead by completing the Online Lodestar Maintenance Training prior to Hoist School. Along with taking a deeper dive into the topics covered in the online course, the CM Hoist School hosts a full multi-day seminar on rigging principles taught by Ed Leahy from Chicago Flyhouse’s Safer Venue program and a session on production electrics and motor control from Motion Laboratories’ Mike Webb. Additionally, we’re excited to host new vendor Lunch & Learn sessions from DBI-SALA, KASK, and Leica Geosystems.
