Key details

Key details

Premiere Pro training course for beginners, teaching key techniques for editing, adjusting and refining video.

Adobe Premiere Pro is the industry-leading video editing software. It is widely used by:

  • Mainstream broadcasters and studios.
  • Public sector organisations with a requirement to edit video, such as local councils and police forces.
  • Designers and creatives.

Our Introduction to Premiere Pro course provides a thorough grounding in the application. The topics covered include adding video effects, exporting frames, clips and sequences, and managing your projects.

This course is ideal for newcomers to Premiere Pro, and those with limited Premiere Pro experience.

Accredited Premiere Pro training

Armada is an Adobe Authorised Training Centre (AATC), accredited by Adobe to provide Premiere Pro training.

Expert trainers

Our Premiere Pro trainer is an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI), and a Premiere Pro expert. He uses the application extensively in his work as a professional editor and motion graphics/visual effects artist.

How will I learn?

Premiere Pro training is hands-on and practical.

Our trainers teach the necessary theory then demonstrate techniques step-by-step. You then practice the techniques taught on a computer running Premiere Pro.

There is plenty of time to ask questions, and you can take away all the files you create.

Training guide and certificate

Course delegates receive:

  • A comprehensive training guide for Premiere Pro, to refer to throughout the course, and to use as a refresher afterwards.
  • An e-certificate confirming successful completion of an Adobe‑accredited Premiere Pro training course. Click here to see an example of the certificate you receive.

After course support

Following Premiere Pro training, delegates are entitled to 30 days’ email support from their Premiere Pro trainer to help with any post-course issues.


No prior Premiere Pro knowledge is necessary.

Premiere Pro Version

Training is based primarily on Premiere Pro CC 2018. The techniques taught are relevant to all recent releases of Premiere Pro.

All Premiere Pro training is suitable for both Windows and Mac users.

“Hannah was very welcoming and Chris was really friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. The other delegate on the course was also lovely and I'm sure I speak for the both of us when I say the workshop was over too soon! I am pleased Chris is 'at the end of an email' for support for 30 days. It is the third course I have attended at Armada in Reading and I have really enjoyed and benefited from each course. Many thanks for your help.”

Maria B

“Chris was really friendly and helpful. The equipment and refreshments provided were great and I really enjoyed the experience.”

Richard B

“Chris was absolutely excellent in his approach and highly professional. I would definitely look to come on another course with him. I am delighted with what I have learned. Thank you.”

Russell D

“One of the best trainers I have ever had.”

Kate A

“Facilities of the course were excellent, handbook was also included to take away. The tutor was highly knowledgeable and helpful with questions asked. Topics covered were excellent and well explained, also included tasks to complete ourselves to enforce learning and vary the method of delivery.”

Sarah T

“The instructor asked us if there was any specific skills we wanted to learn during the course and then made sure these were covered, with examples. This helped us to understand how the skills could be applicable to our own editing situations. Whilst many of these skills would have been covered anyway it was very useful to be able to focus on specific elements that were more relevant to our needs.”

Charlotte P

“Please thank Chris for the course today - it was great and I feel confident now!”

Lyn C

“Excellent pace of training with expert instruction.”

Paul T

“Everything was explained clearly and would be helpful to anyone regardless of experience.”

Dale S

“The course was A+++ and Chris was fantastic! It met all of required needs and answered the questions I had.”

Steven L

“The trainer used terminology people could undertstand.”

Andy R

“The training carried out was very engaging. The trainer was absolutely brilliant in the way the material was delivered, explained and shown. One of the best training courses I have been on.”

Sandep T

“Excellent trainer, really interesting content.”

Laura M

“The training can be structured to meet the needs of your group whilst covering a wide range of material.”

Kayleigh R

“I came away from the class feeling very confident when I was slightly overwhelmed with the software beforehand.”

Maria P

“Very effective teaching style.”

Dominic G

“Easy to understand, well-organised.”

Martyna K

“This training has helped me have a good understanding of the application and an insight into the world of video editing.”

Gary B

“Great progress in the two-day course.”

Frances B

“The learning format was interesting and not just following a workbook. It also related things to real-life working situations. The instructor was very helpful and made learning this new software very easy.”

Chez M

“The tutor tends to aim course material at what you're likely to use it for, which is really useful and helps you to think beyond the software.”

Amanda M

“Chris was very friendly and delivered the course in an effective manner.”

Jessica C

“The training is at a low enough level initially to get you into the software without scaring you off, but then it also goes deeper into things later. Questions and individual needs were covered very well involving all of the other students.”

Matthew H

“It was thorough and despite having quite a lot of experience within editing and video, I feel like I have come away having learnt something.”

Daniel T

“Really enjoyed the course on Adobe Premiere Pro. The trainer, Chris, was very good at giving structured, relevant guidance tailored to my needs. I would thoroughly recommend both Armada and Chris again.”

Stuart R

“Just completed Adobe Premiere Pro (2 days) course. Learnt a lot which I will take away with me and use in my workplace. Good tutor and facilities provided. ”

John E

“Great 2 days - Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects. The courses were really informative, Chris is a great tutor. Would highly recommend Armada. Thanks again”

“Great way to learn the basics of Prem Pro!”
