Mayor Kasim Reed and the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees Local (IATSE) 479 recently launched the City of Atlanta Entertainment Training Program, the first job training program in the United States focused on helping the film industry build a talent pool of trained below-the-line workers with relevant experience.
The program, which is a four entity partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Film and Entertainment, IATSE Local 479, the film industry and WorkSource Atlanta, is currently in its pilot phase.
At no cost or liability to production companies, WorkSource Atlanta will identify qualified applicants for positions as trainees in motion picture and television productions in Atlanta. WorkSource Atlanta will also pay trainees’ wages for the length of the program, which is up to 17 weeks. Once trainees are accepted into the program, IATSE Local 479 will orient the trainees to the film industry through an intensive two-day workshop and work with production to place trainees on set.
The City of Atlanta Entertainment Training Program is organized through cohorts based on current productions that participate in the program. Depending on the production, the positions open to Atlanta residents vary, which means that the number of participants for each cohort will also vary.
How to Apply
Admission into this program is on a rolling basis. You must be an Atlanta resident. Not sure if you live within city of Atlanta limits, find out here.Atlanta residents who are interested in participating must be 18 years of age, have a valid Georgia Driver’s License and must register with WorkSource Atlanta and complete the intake process.
After you register, you must attend a WorkSource Atlanta orientation session, which is offered every Wednesday at 10:00 AM and 12:00 PM. Please be sure to bring all documents listed on the WorkSource Atlanta registration page.
Once you’ve completed the intake process, you will be assigned a skills development advisor. Your skills development advisor will work with you to complete an individual employment plan, discuss how WorkSource Atlanta can support you if you want training from one of our approved training providers (Georgia Tech, Atlanta Tech, etc.) and update you when we start our next cohort in the film training program.
Your skills development advisor will help you register for an interview slot once we are ready to start our next cohort.
Registration for the film training program is done on a rolling basis – we interview prospective participants as soon as we find production entities who are looking for placements. A
