1. Participants must take the workshops in the order in which they are presented. If you do not, you will be at a disadvantage and the workshop instructor will not be able to bring you up to speed without taking valuable time away from other participants.
For example, before registering for Workshop 2, you must have taken Workshop 1 or be registered and take it before the date of Workshop 2. Before registering for Workshop 3, you must have taken Workshops 1 and 2 or be registered and take them before the date of Workshop 3.
3. Good good computer skills, at the basic to intermediate level, are required. This is particularly important for the editing workshops. The workshop instructor will not be able to instruct you in basic computer usage.
