Certification to Reserve Equipment

Now with EQ Checkout, students can learn how to reserve and sign out the latest state-of-the-art equipment for a truly hands-on experience. Equipment can be reserved for 108 hours, weekends included.

In order, to reserve equipment, both online and in-person, students must get certified. Students are required to preview the Camera Certification video below in advance to familiarize themselves with the certification procedures. Once you are certified to use the equipment, an email will be sent to you to create an account, and then you can use the online system. For certification information, please contact our media associate Todd Levesque, or Monique Simon, or Elena Sanchez, our part-time media associates.
