Spring 2024 Proficiency Schedule

All proficiency sessions below will start the first two hours with the black and white film processing proficiency and then the remainder of the time will be for the black and white darkroom proficiency. If you would only like to attend one portion of the session, please email to see what the options are. For more information on our proficiency services, visit the “Photoland Film Proficiencies” page of our website.

Week 3: Friday April 19th – 11:00am – 3:00pm

Week 5: Friday May 3rd – 11:00am – 3:00pm

Week 7: Friday May 17th – 11:00am – 3:00pm

**If you had a proficiency in either of these areas from prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, you will still need to retake your proficiency. If you have taken a proficiency since we returned in 2021, we will have a record of it and can get you scheduled into the space you are hoping to use.**
