Adobe Premiere Pro is the timeline-based video editing software application that comes bundled in the Adobe Creative Suite master collection, production premium and Creative Cloud. The course is delivered on Premiere Pro Creative Cloud (CC).


This course will give you the skills to do the following in Premiere Pro:

  • capture HD video footage
  • basic editing and adding audio
  • adding effects & transitions
  • adding text
  • exporting to a number of formats including web (Youtube)
  • importing projects from other editing systems
  • working with other Adobe applications like Photoshop, Illustrator, Encore and After Effects

Adobe Premiere Pro is becoming increasingly widely used, and offers a cost effective alternative to more high-end broadcast editing options. It is being used increasingly in schools, DIY editing, Corporate and Production environments, and as an alternative to Final Cut Pro for timeline-based video editing. Premier Pro can be purchased separately to the entire Creative Suite - a free download trial version is also available from the Adobe website.


“Great hands on insight into the organisation and structure of Premiere Pro, taught me a lot of good techniques and shortcuts I will use for my videos in the future. Andy was a delightful mentor with a clear voice. Thank-you!” “Really, really good teacher. I had no idea what I was doing in Premier Pro before, NOW thanks to this course I know exactly what I am doing.”


This two day intensive course is an introduction to the basics of using Premiere Pro and is designed for absolute beginners.

This course is only open to students aged 18 +. If you are under 18, you will not be eligible to attend this course.
