Orientations and Basic Certifications are scheduled once every month at the CMC, Usually on the first Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Orientations and Certifications may be rescheduled if the CMC studio is booked or if less than 5 attendees have submitted an RSVP. Notice of changes to the schedule or cancellations will be posted on our main page at least one week prior to the event date.
Check the Workshops page of the CMC web site for dates and times. Each class will introduce the CMC, its guidelines and procedures and also provide information on the history of Public Access Television and the CMC’s roles as a Public, Education and Government (PEG) facility.
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.
