Training Access for
Prior-Experienced Individuals (PEIs)

Under the 2021 Producer–IATSE Basic Agreement, the Producers and the IATSE agreed to establish training requirements for “Prior-Experienced Individuals” (PEIs) who may be assigned to work on a production.

PEIs are non-rostered individuals from under-served communities or under-represented groups, who have prior experience in a job classification that is related or substantially similar to the one for which the Producer is hiring. PEIs are required to complete training through Contract Services before commencing work. (Producers should refer to Article XLVIII(e) of the 2021 Producer–IATSE Basic Agreement for details.)

Producers seeking training access for a PEI should contact us to request access. Please refer to the PEI Training Access Info Sheets to the right for additional information.
