COVID-19 Compliance Officer (C19CO)

As film, commercial, music video, and photo shoots begin to open up across the country, a need has emerged for a new crew position: COVID-19 Compliance Officer (C19CO). Shoots are often places where food is shared, people work closely with one another, and social distancing is often not possible. We have designed this non-union class to inform producers, coordinators, production assistants, and 1st ADs about on-set protocols related to COVID-19 as well as provide tools and resources for the new COVID-19 Compliance Officer (C19CO) position.

This class lasts approximately 2hrs

NOTE: This course is presented as a Webinar through third party platform, 

New class times opening based on demand. 

Class Completion:

Participants will receive a course completion certificate attesting to the content that was provided.

You will receive a link to valuable resources, including example screening surveys, on-set posters, and more.

You will be given the opportunity to list your name in a database of people who have completed this class. This list will be hosted on our website.

The C19CO Does Not Replace A Set Medic:

The COVID-19 Compliance Officer (C19CO) does not replace the need for a Union or Non-Union Set Medic. The position is designed to work in conjunction with the Set Medic and to prevent the spread of Covid -19 by using  CDC recommended measures. The producer should always vet the C19C0 to ensure they are following all current protocols.

Class Background:

This class was created for non-union production. Covid-19 guidelines are constantly changing and vary from city to city, so please always consult your local and state health departments, union, and CDC guidelines before each shoot. This class follows the requirements of the County of Los Angeles Department of Public Health Order of the Health Officer (June 12, 2020), General Workplace Safety Guidelines established by the CDC, and guidelines presented by National Set Medics, AICP, and Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers White Paper, 

This class is not endorsed by any outside organization, and your class completion certificate does NOT classify you as a certified Covid-19 Compliance Officer under any governing body.
