Getting Started in Community Access Television
There are two ways to become eligible to use the studio and field production equipment we offer for creating a CTV-192 program:
Custom Training - This is a project-based training where an individual from the community has already considered something they may like to produce. By filling out the a program proposal form and recieving approval, one or more participants can begin training to complete that program or series. If you already have some knowledge of the process and you just want the form - click the image to download the program proposal form:
Advanced Traininng - The training course is held 3 times each year with sessions beginning in early February, June, and September and provides local residents, ages 17 and up, with classes in group and one-on-one settings in a 12-week program.
Acceptance into the course is based on your ability to attend the required classes, volunteer on productions, and a desire to create your own programming for the channel. Class size is approximately 15-20 participants. No experience is necessary.This course is open to anyone who resides within the Charter franchise area and is available to *non-residents on a space available basis.

Using CTV production equipment and facilities you will learn studio production, field and mobile truck production, editing, lighting and sound for video. By creating programming and volunteering during community productions each trainee will become familiar with basic production theory and operation.
A participant's progress through the program is measured by a system of credits in which each activity has a credit value. CTV staff will monitor participants' activity and provide guidance to allow each individual to complete the program.
Upon graduation you will be welcome to stay with CTV as a producer or on-call volunteer.
