How do I become a certified producer?
PEG Public Access Producers are Jackson residents who have completed basic PEG training for media production. Upon successful completion of training, residents become certified to use PEG equipment and facilities. Minor residents (under the age of 18) with written parental consent may become certified to co-produce programs under the supervision of a certified adult producer who will serve as their sponsor and accept legal responsibility for the minor. Persons who currently work in commercial television or have previous training in commercial television may become certified as PEG Public Access Producers via the following steps:

1. Schedule a meeting with PEG’s Manager. Bring a sample of previous work (demo tapes, resumes, program proposals and any other supporting materials).
2. Attend an orientation meeting on PEG’s rules and procedures.
3. Serve as a crewmember on six (6) Public Access productions.

Public Access experience from another jurisdiction is not transferable.
Individuals will be notifies of exam results within 48 hours of completing their exam.
Any person who fails the exam will be required to take basic PEG training.
