If she wants to make a living in production work, have her go study managerial finance and accounting. Especially math intensive concepts like capital budgeting, working capital management, cost accounting, net present value and time value of money. Doesn't hurt to learn a little business law along the way.

Those things will go much further toward providing future success than rigging training ever will. The concepts are applicable across every industry.


In other words, she should just go get a job in any other more lucrative business which doesn't have such long hours, back breaking labor, low pay, planet sized egos, and a depressing future of drugs, alcohol and no family.   ::)

And those are the good points!

I advise anyone who is not already delusional about production to consider being an accountant, plumber or electrician.
