Course Reimbursement Application Schedule
We transitioned to a quarterly applications submission and review schedule this spring to improve our ability to support local courses. To ensure that your application is reviewed and approved without issues, make sure that your submission meets the necessary requirements:
- The Course Reimbursement Application is completed and submitted by an officer other than the individual listed as a trainer on the application.
- A description of the course content, topics covered, and instructor bio are attached to the application.
- The application and supporting documents are submitted by the deadline to allow time for review and processing.
Generally, new applications will be reviewed within one to two weeks after the application due date. However, depending on the time of year and volume of submissions received, it may take longer. If your submission is missing any documents, you will be asked to resubmit your application. When an application completes the review process, an email notification with the approval amount will be sent within three to four weeks after the application due date.
No Fee Courses
These courses are free for IATSE workers. If you're working in any of the crafts represented by the IATSE and working under an IATSE collective bargaining agreement, then you qualify.
Please note: Some programs may have additional enrollment requirements.
OSHA 10/General Entertainment Safety
This two-day training covers general industry safety and health principles and OSHA policies, procedures, and standards. Topics include scope and application of the OSHA general industry standards as they apply to the entertainment industry.
We developed a customized course and certificate program with AVIXA for IATSE workers making the transition to audiovisual jobs. This four-day, hands-on, introductory course is part of the AVIXA/IATSE TTF Live Event Technician Certificate.
Online Safety for MPTV Workers
Online safety training for workers covered by the 2015-2018 Area Standards Agreement. The General Safety Training “A” and Environmental Safety “A2” Safety Pass courses were developed by Contract Services.
We reimburse workers for industry certifications because we know that ongoing training is important to stay competitive, grow professionally, and perform craft work safely.
You know your workers' training needs best. When your local organizes a safety or craft skills class, we'll reimburse the local for providing group training.

Want the flexibility of setting up OSHA classes when you need them? We'll reimburse your local to develop an OSHA Outreach Trainer to teach the OSHA 10/General Entertainment Safety curriculum at your local.
