Training FAQs

Q: TVCTV equipment looks really technically complicated. Do I need an electronics degree to attend the class?

A: No. Our training staff at TVCTV is not only highly experienced, but incredibly patient as well.  We train people of all ages at a pace that everyone feels comfortable with.  Our classes make a complex system like a production studio easy to learn.  In a very short amount of time you can be creating your own show.

Q: Is the training expensive?

A: Our classes range from $30-50 dollars total and consist of multiple 2 hours long classes held over a several week period.  You will be hard-pressed to find this level of hands-on professional training anywhere for this little cost. 

Q: Do I have to take classes to use TVCTV equipment?

A: Yes.  Anytime you use a technical piece of equipment you need to receive proper training on its use.  Our classes are fun and more importantly a great opportunity to meet others to help you on your productions.

Q: I work when the class is scheduled. Can I take it on another day?

A: Our facilities are in high demand and finding time to have the class is sometimes difficult.  If you have a group of five or more interested we can set up special training for a flat rate for the group. Or, you can sign up for the next quarter training cycle.

Q: What is the minimum age to take classes or participate at TVCTV?

A: The minimum age to access TVCTV’s training, facilities, equipment, and channel space is 12 years old. An eligible parent or guardian must assume full responsibility and liability for individuals between the ages of 12-17 years old.
