Residents of Leominster, as well as organizations and institutions affiliated with the city and those affiliated with such organizations are welcomed and encouraged to use these resources. In order to gain access to production resources and training a person must become a member by:
We are proud to offer the Leominster community a variety of topics to teach you about television. Whether you want to create your own television program, help somebody with theirs, or just learn how television is produced, we can show you how it's done!
Training is FREE with your annual membership!
If you're new to Leominster.TV, then we require you to take the Basic Production Workshop before you may take out equipment, then you may take any or all of the other training at your own pace! Leominster.TV’s training program is now geared toward helping people develop specific projects. When a member asks for training, we ask what they want to do. We then arrange for training on a one-to-one basis if possible, in those specific areas that are currently most important to their project development. We want them to be developing a project or training to help another producer with a production.
We believe that people will be more successful if they receive training that is relevant to something they are committed to doing. To that end, we won’t schedule folks into a training session unless it is something they really need to complete a project they’ve started or to train as a crew member for another producer. In other words, we won’t register you for that edit training if what you really need is training in the studio.
For more information, please call Robert at (978) 537-7760 ext. 6 or email email@example.com

Yes, all members must complete a basic training workshop to be able to borrow equipment. Some equipment may require more than one workshop for you to be able to borrow it, while other equipment (such as consumer HD cameras and most microphones) may be borrowed after completing just the basic training.
If you have formal training from another access center or school you may arrange for a meeting with a staff member where you will be able to demonstrate your knowledge. That staff member may excuse you from certain training.
