Is the AVID MC110 Editing Intensive right for you?
This course is suitable for Editors and Assistant Editors who have a good basic understanding and some experience using Avid Media Composer. It is not a course for beginners.
In order to sit the MC110 official Avid Exam on the last day of the course, to achieve Avid Media Composer User Certification, you must have already passed the Avid MC 101 exam. If you have done the Avid MC101 course but did not pass the exam, we will give you the opportunity to sit the MC101 exam again on the second last day of the course.
You can choose to do this course and NOT sit for the exam.
If you are interested in studying the Avid MC101 curriculum it is covered in the Industry Certificate: TV Assistant Editor.
