Is the Avid MC110 Intensive right for you?

This advanced course is for students and video editors who have a rudimentary knowledge of editing in Media Composer and are ready to broaden their foundational skills to take their editing to the next level.

As such you must have completed either Editing with Avid Fundamentals or Avid MC101 Intensive, or equivalent training prior to this course.

In order to sit the MC110 official Avid Exam on the last day of the course, to seek Avid Media Composer User Certification, you must be competent with the Media Composer Fundamentals I (MC101) curriculum (covered in Avid MC101, or previously in Industry Certificate: TV Assistant Editor).

You can choose to do this course and NOT sit the exam.

TV Assistant Editor Intensive is designed for those already familiar with the fundamentals of Avid Media Composer to learn the unique skills required to work as a freelance TV Assistant Editor. It is an ideal follow up to Avid MC110 Intensive for job specific training.
