World-renowned, instructor-led courses now accessible from any desktop
New York City, NY â€“ August 4, 2009 â€“ Future Media Concepts (FMC), the US premier authorized digital media training organization for postproduction, broadcast professionals, and content creators, is pleased to announce the launch of FMC|Online. Distinct from online training alternatives, FMC|Online offers live group classes conducted by industry recognized, manufacturer certified instructors. Courses cover a wide range of content creation products from leading manufacturers including, AdobeÂ®, AppleÂ®, and AvidÂ®. â€œWith the downsizing of budgets and revenues, more and more content creators are turning to online training to stay ahead of the technology curve and maintain their competitive marketability. No traveling requirements or expenses make online training an attractive optionâ€¦ but not all programs are the same,â€? said Ben Kozuch, president and founder of FMC. â€œUnlike existing online training, FMC|Online does not provide customers with previously recorded lessons. The live, online training parallels the quality of our classroom training courses. It extends the user experience with hands-on application and interaction from the convenience of your own home or office, ensuring maximum material resonation.â€?
A counterpart to FMCâ€™s classroom training, FMC|Online utilizes the latest in desktop sharing technology; providing an interactive platform for instructors to administer immediate feedback and assistance during presentations, exercises and Q&A sessions. â€œWe have received numerous requests for training over the years from prospective students all over the world,â€? said Ben Kozuch. â€œFMC|Online is designed to bring the classroom experience to students regardless of their geographic location. Interested students will now have the ability to attend FMC courses with an Internet connection being the only requirement.â€?
The FMC Online Training division will begin offering courses in August 2009 in the following disciplines:
â€¢ Digital editing (Final Cut StudioÂ® and Avid Media ComposerÂ®)
â€¢ Desktop publishing (Adobe PhotoshopÂ®, IllustratorÂ®, InDesignÂ®, AcrobatÂ®, and Apple iLifeÂ® and iWorksÂ®
