The National Rigging Certificate (NRC) is a qualification that has been developed for riggers working within the entertainment industry. The scheme enables riggers to demonstrate their practical skills, knowledge and expertise to a professional standard and attain recognition of those skills in their chosen rigging discipline. Each individual who achieves the qualification receives a Certificate and skills ID card.

Unusual Rigging has been a contributor to, and supporter of, the NRC accreditation scheme since its inception in 2007. The scheme is widely recognised within the entertainment industry and many companies, including Unusual Rigging, have added their endorsement to the scheme.

All of Unusual’s Crew Chiefs are NRC accredited at Level 3 and Riggers at Level 2.

Assessments are carried out at Unusual's HQ in Bugbrooke, Northamptonshire. The Centre is managed by qualified Assessor Robin Elias and Centre Administrator Jane Parris.

Current assessment dates are:

Level 2 2014
April 28/29
June 23/24

Level 3 2014
