The Recording, Radio, Film Connection and CASA Schools is known for its specialized and affordable on-the-job training programs. All our programs are based on the mentor-apprentice (extern) approach, placing one student with one mentor for one-on-one training in the workplace. These courses involve a structured curriculum, yet they are flexible enough to be built around your schedule and geared toward your interests.
Each RRFC apprenticeship program generally lasts between 6 and 12 months, depending on your schedule and pace, and each offers plenty of opportunities to make professional connections that can lead to future work. Best of all, training you on-the-job means you can fulfill your apprenticeship near where you live, without having to relocate to attend a central campus.
