Media Center Workshops and Training

Media Center Workshops and Training

SAIC school year 2022-23


The Media Center offers online training materials and certification on advanced equipment, which is essential to students seeking instruction and access to media equipment outside of class. Learn the basics on a variety of media production equipment available at the Media Centers. 

Explore our instructional guides under the "Files" section to the left OR go to each individual certification course listed below to enroll in a course. Review the learning materials and take the necessary quiz. Quizzes must be passed in order to be certified on equipment. (It may take 24-48 hours, M-F, for your certification to go through the system, so plan ahead!)


If you have questions or want further instruction or guidance, sign up for a one-on-one tutorial with an equipment trainer. Also, trainers are available to consult with anyone who wants technical assistance about a specific project. Schedule an appointment to either meet in person or via zoom.
