Pro Motion Hire has launched a training unit.

The rental firm said it would build on its tapeless training with courses for the wider industry.

They will focus on data management and camera orientation for cameras including the Canon XF305 and C300, and Sony’s PMW-200.

Managing director Duncan Martin said the move came after talking to clients and industry bodies such as the Digital Production Partnership, Skillset and UK Screen.

Alain Lolliot, Pro Motion’s technical director, said: “These courses strike the perfect balance between laying the theoretical groundwork needed to fully benefit from the practical elements, and really getting stuck in and hands on with the kit.”
