Professional Development

Aimed at a specific niche of the film, performing arts or electronic music markets, our professional development courses bring up-to-date standards front and center for students. Building on previous experience, these programs offer a practical platform for new and complementary skills – bridging the gap between artistry and industry, and vice versa.

Professional development programs are offered in various formats including but not limited to evening programs, master classes, and certificate programs (detailed below). Courses are offered at our Los Angeles campus, around the country, and internationally.

Certificate Programs – 42 hours of study, Ages 18+
Certifications are offered for those interested in Cinematography, Grip, Electric, and Unit Production Managing.  Instilling best practices and processes of each department, these programs prepare individuals for employment on professional sets. Past certifications programs include Underwater Cinematography: Arri Alexa (run in partnership with Clairmont Camera) in Los Angeles and a Set Readiness Certification in Whittier, Alaska (Run in partnership with IATSE Local 918).
