YouTube has been silently inviting YouTube channel owners to join their free online Production skills boot camp, which is held from Jun 15 to 26, 2015.

In addition to the existing resources at the YouTube Creator Academy for content creators, the bootcamp provides 6 lessons and a course quiz, covering lighting, sound, and visual design techniques that can help creators improve their video production standards without spending too much money.

If you sign in at the top of the boot camp home page, complete all 6 lessons, and have at least of 75% of the quiz questions answered correctly, you will receive a letter of completion.

The YouTube Spaces team in Los Angeles will also host a special live broadcast on the Creator Academy channel for boot camp participants on Tuesday, June 23 at 10:00 a.m. PDT.


The boot camp offers some basic but useful tips for non-professional YouTube video makers to make great videos. Each video lasts for around 8 to 12 minutes therefore it has no harm for YouTube channel owners to quickly learn some new skills, or be inspired to make better videos that probably help generate more traffic or even revenues.
