New Construction Training Program


Director of Education Kevin Amick has been working with construction department Keys to develop a training program that brings new members up to speed on the common methods and practices of motion picture construction departments, so that these new members can hit the ground running. Our training workshop now contains a variety of equipment for our construction program. This equipment includes a table saw, a chop saw, a drum/belt sander, a band saw, a drill press, work tables and a variety of hand tools.
