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, due to Covid-19 restrictions, was running as an online class. However we are now able to return to a classroom setting on the Foothill college campus, although the class will continue to be available online. The class is held on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:30pm, costs $60 and covers our Entry-Level Orientation to basic station procedures and functions.

2. On-Air Training
After passing the Orientation Class, those who choose to get on the air will be paired with an DJ for 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.

Please note: based on campus restrictions due to Covid-19, the exact nature of DJ training is subject to change.

3. Graveyard shifts
New DJs continue to train on an independent basis, and are generally required to complete 13 graveyard (2am to 6am) shifts at their own pace before being allowed to apply for daytime shifts.


The Spring 2023 training class is now in session and no further adds are possible. Please check back here later in June for information regarding the Summer 2023 class!
