This online training course is aimed at those who have an existing understanding of Adobe Premiere Pro, but who would like to improve their speed, efficiency and broader knowledge of the application. The course is also suitable for trainees with experience in other none-linear editing applications such as Avid, Final Cut Pro X and Resolve.

With this training we aim to help lift the lid on some of the more advanced features contained within Premiere Pro, and to enable trainees to create a project with solid foundations, and move it all the way through to delivery - making the most of the tools on the way.

Attendees will need access to their own Adobe Premiere Pro software.

Attendees will need to be available to attend all sessions in the series:

  • Session 1 - Tuesday 16th June 1500 - 1600
  • Session 2 - Wednesday 17th June 1000 - 1115

  • Session 4 - Friday 19th June 1000 - 1115
