Workforce Development

Under Statute, the AFPPP is charged with certifying Alaska film production internship training programs and promoting the employment of program interns by eligible productions. In addition, the AFPPP works cooperatively with the Alaska Department of Labor & Workforce Development - Workforce Investment Board on the implementation of the Alaska Crew and Cast Advancement Program (AKCCAP).

AKCCAP: The Alaska Workforce Investment Board (AWIB) received legislative funding to provide a "jump-start" for film and television production training programs. AKCCAP consists of a 2-stage program: the first stage provided grants to training providers to develop programs; the second stage will provide Individual Training Accounts (ITAs) to Alaskans to help pay for training.

In March of 2012, six providers received program development grants: Talking Circle Media; Alaska Crew Training, Inc. (2 programs); IATSE Local 918; Affinityfilms, Inc.; KPU Telecommunications; and the University of Alaska Fairbanks - Film Program.
Beginning in June 2012, individuals can submit applications for ITAs. Funding for ITAs is limited and will be provided on a first-come, first served basis until the entire $227,000 available is obligated.

The ITAs will be administered through the Alaska Job Center Network - Career Support and Training Services (CSTS). Individuals interested in receiving funding for film training must complete a one page application. Visit your closest job center to apply or contact these CSTS specialists:

   •  Muldoon Job Center (Anchorage), Lena Mathlaw – 269-4733
   •  YK Delta Job Center (Bethel), Kimberly Weston-Smith – 543-1601
   •  Juneau Job Center, Danny Lakip – 465-5930
   •  Peninsula Job Center (Kenai), Carolyn Vanzant – 283-2922
   •  Fairbanks Job Center, Missy Lizotte – 451-2891

Funds may cover up to $500 in tuition and $1,000 for transportation and lodging for Alaskans who successfully complete training. Funding will be available on a first-come basis until the entire $227,000 available is obligated. Please click here for more information on how to receive funding.
