You can strengthen your shooting skills through our Videography Certification Program. In one-on-one or small-group sessions, we will take you through the steps with the advanced prosumer equipment in our Video Studio (see Videography Certification Program check sheet). We’ll show you how, then let you do it. When you’ve gotten all the items signed off, we will issue a certificate attesting to your competence and add you to our list of Certified Videographers.

Through certification, you will be qualified to use equipment in the Video Studio. Videography Certification is for members only. For more information, contact Vice President Dr. Tom Nash, head of our Learning Opportunities Commitee,  tom@tomnash.net, 714 381-0781.
