New Orleans Workforce Training

NOVAC supports the expansion of the Louisiana film industry, and the opportunities for Louisianans to develop careers in that industry. Feature film, TV and commercial producers are seeking qualified, skilled workers to fill positions in incoming productions and with production companies. So NOVAC has created partnerships with local governments, trade unions and industry partners, including Entertainment Partners Financial Solutions and Spectrum FX, to create an annual slate of film industry workforce training opportunities for locals to begin careers in the industry.


NOVAC is currently finalizing our slate of Greater New Orleans Area workforce trainings, and will post on this page when the courses
are available!
