Free Premiere Pro Introductory Class

Are you brand new to editing or new to Adobe Premiere Pro? Maybe you use to edit in a different program but need to get up to speed on all the latest and greatest Adobe has to offer?  I/m offering 2.5 hours of professional training for the low cost of FREE!

I’ve been a video professional since 2006, and been a technical trainer/college instructor since 2012.  In that time I’ve been fortunate to across the country in different facilities, and worked with a lot of different people with different skill sets.

One thing that I’ve learned in that time is that everyone needs to start somewhere, and it can be hard to find the right information quickly and easily.  While other training services require a monthly subscription to get started, or free online tutorials give disjointed information, I wanted to put together a class that gives everyone the basics, for free.


Really?  Whats the catch?
Well I’ll be honest with you.  The reason why I have this class out there is a few different reasons.

  1.  I believe everyone should know the basics.  This class is aimed squarely at beginners.
  2. A rising tide lifts all boats. When everyone knows the basics it gives people room to advance faster
  3. It’s training I wish I had when I was learning video editing.
  4. Its a preview of my teaching style.  While earning the basics might be all you need, I’m confident that if you need to learn something quickly and efficiently, I can offer customized advanced training to you or your team.


The course and what you will learn:

This course is geared towards those who have never used Premiere Pro, those new to video editing, or moving to Premiere form another editing suite.

This course is a preview of my professional training in premiere pro and can be considered the bare minimum. It does NOT go into fine details of premiere Pro and its feature set, but acts as a means to get people up and running as fast as possible.
