It is a goal of the IATSE Entertainment and Exhibition Industries Training Trust Fund (IATSE TTF) to provide the highest quality training resources to workers throughout the IATSE. To that end, we are developing a Curriculum Library to which local unions can apply and receive IATSE TTF customized curricula for training. We have several levels of credentialing available to offer a range of options to local unions.
Click here to read about TTF credentialing requirements and options. Local union officers should print out, review, and decide upon the credentials they are opting for prior to completing the appropriate curriculum application.
Titles that are being made available are listed below along with the estimated availability. Local unions interested in using the TTF branded curriculum should have an officer submit a completed application to the IATSE TTF. We will contact your local and the trainers you have identified to discuss the application, orientation, training, and use of curriculum.

The IATSE TTF and UCLA LOSH have developed customized Entertainment Safety modules for the IATSE TTF Safety First! © curricula. This curricula is available for use by any and all IATSE locals. Modules include: Basic Entertainment Safety, Biological Hazards, Hazard Communication, Chemical Protection, Electrical Safety, Fall Protection and Prevention, Elevated Platforms and Aerial Lifts, Scaffold Safety, Ergonomics, Noise Exposure, Confined Spaces/Small Spaces, Firearm Safety, Hand and Power Tools, Compressed Gas, Rigging Safety, and Welding and Cutting. The modules are designed to convey safety awareness.
What makes this curriculum special is that there are case studies from the various crafts to go with the safety modules. This makes the curriculum relevant to the various crafts and means it can be customized based on the group being taught. The instructor manuals give a detailed script and the modules can be taught by instructors of all levels, even a brand new trainer!
The TTF is also collecting other curricula available to share. If your local is looking for a craft training or other course not listed, please contact us as we may be able to help you locate the curriculum you need.
