Avid Training Fund
Avid Training Fund
The ScreenSkills High-end TV Skills Fund will award up to £800 of funding to tech ops and engineers working on high-end television productions or within facilities servicing high-end television productions to attend a course to master using Avid editing software.
Professionals can use the funding to participate in Avid Certified courses at Fundamentals or Professional level across the UK.
- A Fundamentals course provides the foundational training required to achieve the credential of Avid Certified User. Participants will be able to use Avid editing systems with more confidence, creativity and efficiency.
- A Professional course enables participants to build a deeper understanding of the Avid software – covering editing and VFX. Topics covered include advanced techniques to automate the ingest process, colour management and advanced compositing techniques.
