COVID-19 Prevention Training

The COVID-19 Prevention Training Course (C19) was developed to provide general health and safety guidelines to help minimize the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19 in the motion picture production industry.

In approximately 30 minutes, the C19 course covers the following topics:

  • Recognizing the signs and symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Use of masks and respirators.
  • Hand washing, including proper techniques.
  • Additional COVID-19 prevention measures

Course Availability

The C19 course is available to individuals represented by the DGA and SAG-AFTRA. It is also available for purchase by eligible motion picture industry employers through the Training Referral Platform.

The C19 course is optimized for delivery on smartphones and other mobile devices but may also be completed using a web browser on a desktop or laptop computer.
