To register for a workshop class, you must meet the following criteria: Be a TCtv "User".
Resident: Any person using TCtv must provide proof of residence in the City of Torrance. Such proof of residence may be, but not limited to the presentation of a current California Drivers License or California Identification Car and a recent utility bill which clearly shows the name and address of the person requesting use of TCtv.
Non-Resident - Non-Profit Organizations: Persons who are authorized representatives of a non-profit institution or organization may use TCtv for the purpose of cable casting announcements or programming. In all cases where non-resident representatives request use of TCtv, a "Statement of Compliance", and a "Non-Resident Authorization" form signed by the identified member of the institution or organization must be provided. Each Non-Profit organization must provide proof of Non-Profit status, along with the identification of the individual representing the organization. Verification of all information will be conducted by TCtv. In all cases, Torrance based non-profit organizations will receive priority over non-Torrance based non-profit organizations.
Class attendance is mandatory per session group. One absence and you forfeit your place in the workshop and your deposit.
The Pre-Production Planning workshop is a required course, but not a pre-requisite. You must attend one of these classes to become a certified TCtv Producer.
Provide a personal/cashiers check or money order for the individual workshop. This check should be made out to the City of Torrance. All payments must be made one week prior to the start date of the workshop. Sorry, we do not accept cash.
We look forward to satisfying your desire to produce Access video programming in the City of Torrance at TCtv Channel 28.

Persons experienced in operating video equipment may be issued Certification by passing a performance test without attending a workshop. Those persons will be required to pass a written and/or oral and/or hands-on proficiency exam issued by staff. Persons who provide proof of experience including a minimum of one (1) professional reference will be considered for this waiver.
To arrange for an exam, call TCtv at (310) 618-5762 and request an appointment with the TCtv Coordinator.
