About the RRF Family of Schools, continued
The Film Connection is owned and operated by the Recording Radio Film Connection family of schools and the Mentor/Apprentice School of the Arts. The RRF schools hold a reputation for having the finest film, radio, and music production schools in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
Unlike other schools, our students learn from successful mentors in real world situations, including in active recording studio sessions, on real film sets and at actual on-air radio stations as opposed to simulated classrooms where the pressures of client interaction and real deadlines do not exist. Applicants are screened and then re-screened by the mentors. What’s more, the RRF family of schools’ programs can be completed in approximately half the time of degrees obtained from other schools. No experience is required, and students can start at any time, as opposed to specific semesters. They can also take classes part-time during night or weekend sessions, scheduling their training around a current job.
Upon completion of any of the RRF programs, the successful graduate has made dozens of industry connections and has logged over 100 hours of hands-on, real world experience, enabling them to be positioned for viable employment.
Through Sallie Mae, the world’s leading provider of educational loans, Recording Radio Film Connection is able to offer prospective students attractive financial aid packages featuring zero down full tuition loans. Depending on your credit history, Sallie Mae student loans have a low interest rate (as low as the prime rate) with various payment plans that allow you to take up to 15 years to pay back the loan.
With corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, California, Recording Radio Film Connection’s on-the-job training programs are not only successful in teaching students, but also in getting them jobs in fields that are quite difficult to break into. Once courses are completed, job placements are typically high. The curricula teach the ins-and-outs of the film, music and recording businesses, placing over 72 percent of its graduates in industry jobs.* Recording Radio Film Connection graduates are in the right place at the right time with connections, and they continue to make names for themselves by working inside major media companies.
Recording Radio Film Connection is an associate member of the National Broadcasters Association (NAB), The American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (AFTRA), and the Society for Professional Audio Recording Services (SPARS).
* Job placement statistics represent the percentage of students who graduated between May 1, 2013 and April 30, 2014 and found work related to their studies within six months of their graduation.
