This 2-day course is designed for students who have basic editing experience (with Avid Media Composer or Final Cut Pro) and want to quickly get up to speed on Adobe Premiere Pro. 

Students are guided through the entire editing process, from project creation to export and integration with other applications, gaining exposure to the core skills, workflows, and concepts involved in professional nonlinear editing in Premiere. The days are divided between demonstration and hands-on practice, with a focus on moving to Premiere from other editing platforms, like Avid or FCP. 

All our teachers are working editors who know how Premiere is used on real-world projects—not just what it says in the manual.
