Orientation & Certification

Share Button

Orientations and Basic Certifications are scheduled upon request. Participants will receive a tour of the facility and will learn about the CMC, its guidelines and procedures and will also be provided with information on the history of Public Access Television and the CMC’s roles as a Public, Education and Government (PEG) facility.

Basic Camera instruction follows orientation.   If you are interested in learning more about the CMC and membership please contact Mike Fell at MFell@carrollmediacenter.org for more information.

Basic Certification (free with paid CMC membership)

A CMC member can receive Basic Certifications in Field Production, Audio Booth, and Video Editing.  Basic Certifications are requested by CMC members and are scheduled by the Member Coordinator after the completion of Orientation via email.

Once certified with a paid membership after orientation, the member can reserve and use the CMC field cameras, microphones, lights, Audio Booth and it’s associated gear, and community edit stations to produce their program.

All certifications can be scheduled on an individual basis but the Member Coordinator will set up group certifications if possible.  Please call the Member Coordinator to schedule a certification session for any of these production skills.

  • Basic Editing Certification – Learn how to take your footage and edit it together to create a story or package an event.
