So how do you get the work hours to qualify for the test?

The word "apprenticeship" comes to mind.  Also, until a venue requires only certified riggers one can work and/or receive OJT that will count.  Also remember that both "up" and "down" rigging apply.

I am not yet qualified to sit for the test, but our Local has 3 venues that do not require 100% certified rigging crew, so I am able to rig in those facilities and my work hours count.  Our local has begun in-house training again, so we also have an experienced/certified head rigger dealing with trainees.  We've found it harder to train good ground riggers than to train good up-riggers.  YMMV.
