IATSE and lynda.com

In the fall of 2015, in a continuing effort to provide professional development opportunities for all IATSE members, the Education and Training Department added a valuable new tool to our training arsenal – lynda.com. Through this partnership, subscribed members have had unlimited access to lynda.com’s online library of over 3,500 high quality instructional videos across a wide spectrum of technologies. To date, over 6,300 members have subscribed to lynda.com through the IATSE and have had access to courses in audio visual, animation, design, photography, business writing, negotiation, conflict resolution, communication, and more – and more members enroll every day.

The IATSE will continue to offer premium annual discounted Lynda.com subscriptions to members in good standing and local union staff. Year 2 subscriptions will begin on September 1, 2016 and end on August 31, 2017 and cost $25. Year 1 subscriptions expire on August 31, 2016, and are no longer available.

ENROLLMENT INSTRUCTIONS

ENROLLMENT IS THROUGH THE LOCAL UNIONS. Individual members who are interested in this program should contact their local union.

ACT, MAL, AND R&T MEMBERS who would like to purchase subscriptions, and any member with questions, should contact Jennifer Halpern, Education Outreach Coordinator, at lynda [at] iatse [dot] net.

Year 1 subscriptions (2015-2016) are no longer available. 

Enrollment for Year 2 (2016-2017) has begun, and is ongoing - Local Unions may submit forms anytime throughout the year for as many subscriptions as they like.

LOCAL UNIONS

1. Each local union must designate a lynda.com coordinator. This coordinator collects payment from members purchasing subscriptions, fills out the required enrollment forms, and submits the completed forms to the IA Education Department with one check from the Local Union made payable to “IATSE”. Once forms are received at the IATSE NY office, the master administrator will assign local union lynda.com coordinators the sub-administrator designation of “Group Assistant” within the lynda.com administrator interface. “Group Assistants” can view reports on your local’s lynda.com usage and assign or delete playlists for your local’s lynda.com subscribed members.

2. If the local union already has members enrolled in lynda.com, reach out to those members who currently have subscriptions to determine which members wish to continue with lynda.com and enroll in Year 2. You may download and adapt the sample letter, and use it to communicate with your local’s year one lynda.com subscribed members.

  • Members who wish to RENEW will enjoy uninterrupted access to their lynda.com accounts if your forms are received in the IATSE NY office by July 29, 2016. Members who wish to renew whose forms are received in the IATSE NY office after July 29, 2016 may temporarily lose access to their lynda.com accounts beginning August 31, 2016. Those lynda.com accounts will become active again once we receive and process the forms in the IATSE NY office.

For locals which participated in Year 1 lynda.com subscriptions, use the enrollment instructions and forms that were emailed in June of 2016 to the local union lynda.com coordinator. Contact lynda [at] iatse [dot] net if you had members enrolled in Year 1 and did not receive your Year 2 enrollment forms.

Provide your local union with your name, email address with which you would like your lynda account set up, date of birth, and craft, along with a check made payable to your local union.
