Nā Leo TV offers an online training curriculum for Big Island residents looking to become certified producers, available for a nominal fee.

Upon completion of these classes, students will pass two proficiency tests and submit a public service announcement (PSA) to demonstrate the ability to use NLTV equipment and mastery of basic concepts. Students will then be a certified external producer, eligible to use equipment, edit bays, and studios for FREE.
