Coronavirus basic awareness on production training

Module type

Online learning

Estimated time

40 minutes (module) + 20 minutes (assessment test)

This online learning module and assessment test from ScreenSkills are designed specifically for freelancers/crew working in physical production in the film and high-end TV industries. Although we hope the learning will also be broadly useful whichever part of the screen industries in physical production you are working. They explain the control measures and management systems that you can expect to find on productions following the outbreak of coronavirus. It will also test your learning and provide a certificate, if you pass.

The online learning module, divided into three sections, is a mixture of text, videos and simple quiz questions to gauge your understanding. The module assumes that through your everyday life you have some existing knowledge of the virus and government guidance in place. It covers key aspects of what you need to know and be aware of when you return to working on production. You should remember, however, that each production will have local guidance based on individual circumstances and risk assessments.

Following the learning module, you will be directed to the assessment test, which consists of 20 multiple-choice questions and has an 80% pass mark. Upon successful completion of the test, you will receive a downloadable certificate.

We recommend completing this module in one sitting. However, if you are not able to do this, your progress will be saved, and when you come back to finish the module you will be taken to the last screen you viewed.

You can repeat the online module and assessment test as many times as needed.

If you have further questions about this module, you might find the answers in our coronavirus e-learning FAQ.
