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. You’ll have plenty of opportunities to ask questions.

Windows or Mac

Premiere Pro works almost identically on the Windows and Mac platforms.

Our centres offer both Windows and Mac computers for delegates to use, so you can choose to carry out exercises on the platform you’re familiar with.

Premiere Pro training guide and certificate

Course delegates receive:

  • A practical Premiere Pro training guide, to refer to during the course and use as a refresher after. Choose from a printed, bound guide or a PDF – whatever suits you best. If you’re participating online and you choose a printed guide, we’ll post this to you.
  • An e-certificate confirming successful course completion. 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. For further details, see Support.

Prerequisites

No prior Premiere Pro knowledge is necessary.

Premiere Pro version

Training is based primarily on Premiere Pro 2024. The techniques taught are relevant to all recent releases of Premiere Pro.

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