Is Editing with Avid Fundamentals right for you?

This is not a course for those wishing to learn the craft of editing. It is a technical, software oriented course. It is most suitable for Post Producers or Production personnel who already work in the industry but are new to Avid and need to learn how to work the tools simply in one day, or for people who need a refresher. Alternatively if you are not yet working in the industry but are aspiring to work in Post Production with Avid, this course can also get you started with the basics, learning from real world examples.
