Advanced Classes Taught by Certified Instructors Support Career Goals of Working Professionals (June 23, 2011)
DMN Newswire--2011-6-23--Future Media Concepts (FMC), the nation's premier digital media training organization and IBC, the world's leading electronic media event, today announced that they will be offering Apple(R), Avid(R), and Adobe(R) post-production workshops at IBC2011, being held at the RAI Amsterdam, September 8 - 13.

"The IBC Certified Training Programme highlights IBC's commitment to serving the needs of individuals within broadcasting and electronic media and to continually provide the platforms to support the industry," comments Michael Crimp, CEO, IBC. "We are proud to be working again with FMC. The high standards that they deliver, the relevance of their courses, and the skills of the presenters will ensure that the programme is a worthwhile investment for any post-production professional."

This is the second year that FMC and IBC have joined forces with the IBC Certified Training Programme, which this year will be offering two-day Apple Final Cut Studio(R) and Final Cut Pro X(R) workshops, two-day Avid Editing workshops, and a single one-day Adobe Production Premium workshop. For attendees' convenience, the full schedule is offered twice and repeats itself between Thursday, September 8, and Monday, September 12. The sessions are intended to support the career and technical goals of post-production professionals, and are designed to maximize their creativity and efficiency on the software. Sessions are taught by FMC-certified Instructors and culminate in an optional, one-hour certification test on either Friday, Sunday, or Monday.

"The toolset available for post-production is ever changing, and the top talent in the business is always pushing the envelope to make the most of what's available. Software is becoming more complex and the need for cutting-edge training has never been that evident," said Ben Kozuch, FMC Conferences president and co-founder. "FMC workshops help professionals keep pace. Our instructors are well-known for their ability to lead objective and relevant, hands-on sessions that ensure participants maximize the experience. After last year's success at IBC, we are glad to have the opportunity to return to IBC2011 for another round of effective Apple, Avid, and Adobe training."
