COVID-19 Prevention Training

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

The C19 course takes less than an hour to complete and 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.

The C19 course covers the following topics:

  • Recognizing the signs and symptoms of COVID-19
  • PPE, with a focus on safe donning and doffing
  • Hand washing, including proper techniques
  • Environmental cleaning and disinfection, including high-touch wipe-downs
  • Policies and procedures related to COVID-19 on set or in offices
  • Preventing cross-contamination
  • Protecting yourself at home
  • Psychological impact of the pandemic

Course Availability

The C19 course is available to Industry Professionals who access training through Contract Services. In general, this means individuals who are on the Industry Experience Roster, the Teachers Availability List or the Dual Credential Substitute List, or anyone working under the IATSE Basic Agreement, West Coast Studio Local Agreements or Basic Crafts Agreements.
