Welcome to PA Bootcamp

The Original and Most Trusted Job Training Program.
Serving the Film, TV and Commercial Industry for Over 10 years, we are THE Program professionally trusted to produce top quality Set and Office P.A.s who are ready to go to work immediately.

P.A. Bootcamp is not a school. Not a class. Not a seminar. Not a powerpoint presentation.
P.A. Bootcamp is JOB TRAINING. A Two-Day thorough, intensive, real-world program.
Our goal is to mold you into the kind of Set/Office P.A. shows want to hire.

If you are going to work as a P.A., wouldn't it be better to know what is going on all around you? We prepare you thoroughly and completely for the job of Production Assistant, which is your first step into the entertainment business as it has been for many highly successful producers, directors and crew currently working in the industry.
