IATSE workers are the mostly highly skilled craftspeople in the entertainment industry. Likewise, local union leaders must have the best possible skills in order to represent these members and confront the challenges and the pressures of the modern labor environment.

In order to fortify local union leaders to tackle this challenging road before us, the IATSE General Executive Board, in conjunction with the IATSE Education and Training Department, created the IATSE Officer Institute.

Classes offered include:

  • Officer Institute 1.0
    A five-day, intensive certification program that will provide hands-on, practical tools officers can bring back to their local union. IATSE local union leaders at all levels of experience can enroll in this week-long educational program – a comprehensive look into the nuts and bolts of running a local, bargaining, and building power for members.
  • Local Union Trustee Training
    A class to teach local union trustees valuable skills to protect their local's books.
  • Officer Institute 2.0
    Two different advanced courses for graduates of Officer Institute 1.0. Choose either Organizing or Secretary-Treasurer.
