Certification workshops include studio production where participants learn to produce talk shows or other studio-based programs, or field production where participants learn to produce magazine, film-style or other location productions.
 
Once they obtain certification, participants have access to BronxNet studios and production equipment. Certified producers are able to use BronxNet resources to produce non-commercial shows on a one-time or ongoing basis, in any genre of their choice.
 
Intermediate and advanced workshops for active, certified producers and classes tailored to the needs of artists and filmmakers are also available.
