Overview

This Premiere Pro training course is the start of your video editing journey. 

Over the two days of training you’ll get up to speed with the Premiere Pro interface, before getting hands on with features like adjustments, transitions, video effects and more. 

This course will be delivered through our Accelerated learning approach, allowing you to learn more information, easier and more efficiently than standard training approaches.

Target Audience

This course is for designers, marketers, developers or anyone looking to step into the world of video editing. 

Upon completion, you'll be able to

  • Comfortably navigate the Premiere Pro interface and understand the core features
  • Add video effects, workflows and assets to your projects
  • Create cut-only videos, add video transitions and learn how to utilise the specialist editing tools
  • Import and capture media, as well as export frames, clips and sequences

Accelerated learning

Our Accelerated learning approach at Certitec is unique within the Adobe training industry. Our focus is not on what you learn, but how you learn. Referred to as ‘Accelerated Learning’, this process allows you to digest a significant amount of information more quickly, and more easily than through other methods.

Accelerated learning

  • Establish a firm understanding on the learning process before embarking
  • Overcoming any learned helplessness by reframing what will be learnt upon completion
  • Sessions no longer than 60 minutes each to maximise how we learn 
  • The use of course workbooks to strengthen memory retention (classroom)
  • Finding a balance between new and recap learning
  • Kinaesthetic (‘hands-on’) techniques
  • Video of entire course upon completion (remote)

Classroom trainint

Advantages of classroom training

Classroom training has many advantages over other formats of training since in-person interaction and communication plays an extremely important part to absorbing information. 

Classroom training allows you to get trained in a safe, quiet, clean environment, away from the noise and pressures of the office or home. The classroom environment provides the important “human touch,” which is often missing in technology-based training. 

You can’t beat real life interaction when asking important questions and receiving immediate feedback. 

Other benefits of classroom training include:

  • Group interaction. People learn from one another as well as from the trainer
  • Training groups can be large or small
  • Classroom training also teaches us how to interact with one another in a professional, productive, cooperative way, which is something that other forms of training often don’t provide

Remote training

Advantages of remote training

Remote training introduces a virtually no-limits training option since it's extremely flexible. You can attend a remote training session anywhere in the world and has become increasingly popular over the last few years. 

Remote training plays itself into your hands and you can harness technology to enable you to use traditional computers, tablets and even phones for complete flexibility.

You can see your trainer (webcam) and they will take you through the training session like you're actually attending a classroom training event.

Other benefits of remote training include:

  • No travel to the classroom - you can attend remote training in your pj's if you wish!
  • Training groups can be large or small and even split over multiple locations and even multiple countries at the same time
  • You have the ability to interact with your trainer by talking, electronically raising your hand and even allow for them to see your screen (if you authorise)
  • All remote training sessions are recorded - so you can play-back at anytime in the future and enhance your learning experience

What are the training times?

We start at 9.30 and finish at 4.30pm with plenty of breaks and 40 minutes for lunch.

Is there any pre or post study required prior to undertaking any course?

The simple answer is no.

If you have booked an 'Adobe certified' course with us - you do have the option to view some sample documents we send across prior to your exam.

Although this would only affect your scoring by a couple of percent either way.

What is Adobe certification?

Adobe certified professional. Build a unique portfolio and gain a professional certification that communicates your advanced knowledge- that is what becoming Adobe certified is about.

Is there any technical support after the course completes?

After your course, we don’t leave you high-and-dry. Our technical support is provided for a lifetime.

Just visit the Adobe Creative Cloud page and see what might be the best option for you.

What happens if I am unwell on the morning of my course?

This is just fine from a course perspective since you can re-arrange again (according to our course schedule) for no fee.

Can I jump immediately to an advanced course?

Delegates attending an Advanced course must already possess at least 85% of the knowledge of the (previous) Introduction course. This is so you are not out of your depth in the Advanced course and also so other delegates are not affected.

Will I be able to work to my own agenda in the training?

Our courses are scheduled and run with the same outline and objectives.

Whilst our trainers can field some ad hoc questions along the way we are unable to provide specific information on your personal project.

Is the training just 'watching' or is it interactive?

The training is interactive just like you were in the training room with the trainer.

You will download the training files and work through modular exercises with your Adobe certified instructor.

If you need assistance you can ask your trainer and they will help you work through any issues you experience.

What if I fail my Adobe certified exam?

Should you not pass the first time, you can retake the exam (up to 5 separate free attempts are allowed) for no charge when the course runs again in our schedule.

The Adobe certified professional (ACP) exam is facilitated solely by Certiport and their testing solution (Exams from Home [EFH]).

See our booking conditions should the Certiport EFH system become inaccessible or inoperable.

Will I get a certificate for attending?

Yes - your Adobe training centre certificate of attendance will be emailed after your training course completes.

Alistair was really great, he went at a good pace which was easy to keep up with, was patient and helpful when anyone had a question and explained things really well throughout. Great sessions

Emma Hall. 20th March, 2024

Brilliant course. Engaging and I will take lots away from this

Richard Stock. 16th February, 2024

The trainer was giving instructions at such a fast pace that it was very hard to keep up at times. I would have preferred that he take a bit more time to explain where to find things on the menu as at one point I had fallen too far behind

Evelyne Rose. 12th February, 2024

Alistair brought fun into the course with his humorous comments and he taught us a great deal in a short amount of time. I have learnt so much and confident to utilise my skills in my working environment. Many thanks

Roopal Vyas-Patel. 12th February, 2024

Alistair is an exceptional trainer, although i am computer literate and a lot of people are he completely stripped down to basics so we all learned at the same level
