Training at KFJC
Why not join us?
KFJC is more than a radio station - it's a learning institution. Our primary function is to teach the art of radio to students of all musical tastes and skills. Whether it's learning to be a DJ, going though our public affairs department, our engineering ranks - in fact, KFJC operates through a total of ten different departments, each with its own skill set and all needed to run a radio station. All new station members are expected to complete basic training, which has a focus on on-air operations.
1. Orientation Class
Your introduction to KFJC begins with the 10-week long KFJC Radio Station class, which runs at the Foothill campus every quarter on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:30pm. This class, which costs $60, covers our Entry-Level Orientation to basic station procedures and functions.
2. On-Air TrainingAfter passing the Orientation Class, those who choose to get on the air will join an on-air DJ for one-on-one training during their weekly on-air shift. The match will be determined by your schedule and musical interests. This stage of training follows a formal program, lasts several weeks, and concludes with one hour of supervised independent operation.
3. Graveyard shiftsNew DJs continue to train on an independent basis, and are required to complete 13 graveyard shifts (2am to 6am) at their own pace before being allowed to apply for daytime shifts.
KFJC's orientation class is offered four times a year. The Spring quarter class begins on Wednesday January 8th 2020 but late additions are accepted until the second session.
You can also go to the KFJC lobby, building 6200, before 7:30 that evening and ask one of us for more details and directions to the room. If you drive, please don't forget to buy a parking permit ($3) from one of the machines in the lot where you park!
