In the past 100% of our programs have been in person, on site, hands on. While we are still providing that "Live" experience, we have expanded the content we have available on line. Most courses consist of four hours study online remote, from home or at our facilities then four hours hands on practice. Independent Projects are always available and are designed to suit the participants needs.
If you are looking to learn something not in the current curriculum please consider proposing a project of your own design. The steps are simple:
1) Write a description of the concept.
2) Create an action plan detailing the steps, crew and equipment that will take.
3) Get Clearance from Program manager or a sponsoring instructor.
4) Enlist Crew, get waivers, schedule production, obtain the gear or studio time
