Using narrated animations, trainees are introduced to a wide range of rigging components, application, and associated terminology. 3D models of components and tools provide
trainees with a valuable way to clearly visualize rigging components and their use.
As part of this course, trainees complete several Knowledge Checks to validate their training and identify subject areas where additional review/training are recommended.
A certificate of completion will be provided to all participants who successfully complete the course.
