Training and Education

The Casting Society of America is currently in the process of officially launching our highly anticipated, newly minted Training and Education Program!

Recognizing the lack of college level courses in the field of casting as well as the decreased opportunity for internships, CSA decided to create a training program for those interested in pursuing a career in casting in an effort to train the next generation of diverse casting professionals.

With the beta test of the new program being met with a resounding positive response, our current goal is to launch the first three courses for paying students this November when we will be accepting 18 new students into the program.  


The first three courses include:

Industry Insider Part 1 - "Who's Who" Part 1

Casting Society of America
History of Casting
Casting Team
Creative Team
Studio & Network
Agents & Managers

Industry Insider Part 2 - "Who's Who" Part 2
The Production Team
Departments & Positions
Roles & Responsibilities
Relationship to Casting

Industry Insider Part 3 - "Office Skills and Etiquette"
Administrative Duties
Scheduling & Appointments
Documentation & Paperwork
Business Etiquette

If you are interested and would like to be added to our candidates list for the November classes please email us at and put FALL CLASS LIST in the subject line.

We will alert you when we are ready to officially launch.


Thank you,

The CSA Training and Education Committee
