Training Programs

Each fiscal year, the CSATF Board of Trustees allocates monies to fund job-related skills training programs for eligible Industry employees. These programs are administered through a separate Trust Agreement known as Contract Services Administration Training Trust Fund ("CSATTF"). 

The training programs offered by CSATTF each year come about in several ways. Some of the training programs are provided for and required by a specific local agreement; some programs are requested by local unions; and some programs are recommended by Industry employers. 

Local #40 Motion Picture Studio Electrician Apprentice Program
Motion Picture Studio Maintenance Air Conditioning Mechanic Apprentice Program
Local #44 Pyrotechnic License Reimbursement
Local #706 Make-Up Artist Training Series
Local #706 Hair Stylist Training Series

Individuals interested in participating in these training programs must satisfy certain eligibility requirements. Primarily, if you are listed (with all information current) on the Industry Experience Roster, the Television Commercial Roster, or the Teacher Availability List, you are eligible to apply for these courses. In the event you work in a job classification that is not covered by the Rosters, you must meet certain minimum employment experience in the Industry. 

For CSATTF Fiscal Year 2014/2015 (which runs from February 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015), the following training programs are being offered.

See reimbursement details under the CSATTF Reimbursement Policy.
