What is this?
Performer.Training is an online education program for people in the adult industry, this includes porn stars, webcam performers, clips producers, and very soon we will also include classes for exotic dancers. A lot of people offer online classes. This program is no different. When you complete the courses, you are given a certificate of completion.
How much will the classes cost?
We will not be charging anything to take our classes and get your certificate of completion. Although we realize the proposed AB2389 bill stated they will charge performers to take their classes and get certified, we do not. Our classes are 100% free. There will not now nor ever be a cost to take our classes.
What will the classes be about?
- A basic understanding of the adult industry structure
- Performer Rights

- Sexual Harassment
- Talent Agents
- Working with Production Companies
- A basic primer on social media
- The laws regarding creating your own content

I don’t live in California do I need to take these classes?
Yes. While it’s true the state of California wants to regulate us, this isn’t about that. Our program is meant to help everyone in the industry, no matter what state you live in. Our goal is to ensure that every person who works in the industry has this information available to them. While stopping government proposed regulation is nice. We also want to make sure everyone has this vital information available to them. It doesn’t matter who you are or what segment of the adult industry you work in, this information (these classes) will help you.
Where does the money come from?
Performer.Training was created with the promise that it will always provide free training for performers. We will never charge you to take our classes. The money to keep the site afloat is provided by donations, and sometimes even product sales (our pornstar t-shirts). Performers already have enough to worry about like paying for their tests, keeping up with their own needs. We don’t want to add more burden on you.
