Certified Legal Video Specialist Seminar
Friday – Sunday
(Earn up to 1.3 CEUs for current NCRA credential holders; non-NCRA credential holders are not eligible to earn CEUs.)
For those seeking the industry’s premier legal video certification, the CLVS Seminar is the first step.
While there are no specific prerequisites for the course, cursory prior knowledge of video concepts and equipment (even at the consumer level) is useful when taking this program.
The CLVS Seminar is the first of three steps to become certified. The Production Exam will be administered at Convention, Aug. 4 - 7 from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Experienced legal videographers may apply to take the Production Exam in the same weekend as the seminar. To learn more about the written knowledge test and the production skills test, please visit the CLVS Certification Process.
Friday, March 11: 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m.
Day one provides attendees with a general overview of what it means to be a legal videographer. Faculty will cover the use of video in the legal system, components of a deposition recording system, and video and audio equipment. Experienced legal videographers are not required to attend this day.
Saturday, March 12: 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m.
Day two of the CLVS seminar is the mandatory day required for certification. Faculty will cover CLVS Code of Ethics, CLVS Standards for Video Depositions, Video Signal, applicable Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Post-Production and CLVS Certification. Attendees will come away with a comprehensive understanding of the role of video in a deposition environment.
Sunday, March 13: 9 a.m.–5 p.m.
Day three of the CLVS seminar is highly recommended for those who are not already working in the legal video setting. Day three offers small group hands-on training with a typical deposition video set-up, as well as a session on how to study and prepare for the CLVS Written Knowledge Test and CLVS Production Exam.
