For those new to the industry, the Production Assistant Certification is a great first step to learn more about working on Utah film, television, and commercial sets. Developed with the Utah Film Commission, the course is taught by experienced 1st ADs and production experts. The next certification will be in Spring 2021. Due to COVID-19, we are currently teaching the class online through a meeting share. If you are interested, please click the wait list button below.

Due to Utah's current COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols for the film industry, our classes will be taught using web conferencing until all of Utah is in a "green" status. We are excited about this new format as we are making changes to the Production Assistant Certification class that will enable us to bring in additional guest speakers. During the class, industry experts will review the current Utah COVID-19 protocols that are being used on productions.
