We’re here to train eager, self-sufficient, and willing to learn students … It’s quite an opportunity, and not a class to be missed!”

“First of all I want to thank you for the PA training program. Fortunately I was able to land a PA job @10.50 an hr with the film Robots. Two days into the production I was given a spot on the Grip crew and got an increase in pay to $23.15 an hr. for two weeks after that. And now I’m on the production called Dark Winds as a prop maker/construction, making $29.69 an hr. Thank you once again for this program. It really did help get me get in the door to a new career. Also I want to thank the trainers Bosco, Forrest, Eric and Nick they are awesome. Hope this helps keep the program going and brings more jobs to New Mexico.” -Luigi
“I was hired on as an office PA for a two week stint for BIG SKY S2, but was eventually moved to full time office PA, and then was promoted again to Production Secretary. Thank you all so much for the incredible skills that I learned from your training. The information allowed me to move up in the production office and continues to allow me to grow and move forward with the trust of my team. Thank you all so much!” -Kelsey
