The PGI Display Operator Certification (DOC) Course, or PGI Course, is designed to meet the need for both a "Basic" course in Fireworks Display Safety and as the first step in an optional Certification Process, which when completed, results in the successful trainee becoming a PGI Certified Display Operator. More info in the benefits of the course can be found at the PGI Website.  

The class is $99 per person, which includes textbook, lunch, and snacks. (3% fee if paying with card or PayPal). Please RSVP by April 12th by sending an e-mail to, call 269-663-6110, or fill out the sign up form on our website.

One of the requirements to become a PGI Certified Display Operator is to participate in the live-fire portion of the PGI Display Operator Course. Students should be prepared by bringing to class their own Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Per NFPA 1123 - 2010, this includes: Head protection, eye protection, hearing protection, foot protection (closed-toe shoes) and cotton, wool, or similarly flame-resistant, long-sleeved, long-legged clothing.
We will be bring a limited amount of PPE for $25 if you would like it included with course just say so and we will add it on. (hard hat, gloves, ear plugs, safety glasses)
We will also be doing our product demonstration that same evening around 9pm EST. The demo will be open to the public.
