City Desktop Training

Level 4, 60 York St Sydney, 2000

LINK TO COURSE

COURSE TITLE: After Effects Essentials Course

LOCATION(S): Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Onsite

SUMMARY:

If you’ve already attended City Desktop Training’s After Effects ‘essentials’ course, you have enough experience and want to level up in the deeper aspects of After Effects, then the advanced training is aimed at you. With references to kinetic (and 3D) titles and type elements, colour correction, and using motion and camera tracking – these are the topics that really push the envelope in After Effects and the average user could use some professional help learning the right way to wield the tools. City Desktop Training is an Adobe Authorised Training Center, the instructors are personally Adobe Certified, and they have industry experience you’ll need to access. The training modules and course outline are available in detail on the web page and are a good representation of the more powerful tools in After Effects that take more time to master. The course comes with after training tech support (you’ll have to ask how long for and what format it’s delivered in). You also get the Adobe After Effects Studio Techniques eBook, which is a nice change from the usual Classroom in a Book. Completing the training gets you an AATC Adobe Authorised Certificate. You have a choice of several cities or onsite training and the option of Mac or PC for your advanced After Effects training.

The Knowledge Academy

Level 13, 2 Park Street, Sydney NSW 2000

LINK TO COURSE

COURSE TITLE: Adobe After Effects Introduction

LOCATION(S): Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Darwin

SUMMARY:

The Knowledge Academy run training sessions in ‘luxury locations’ around the world, and After Effects is one of the courses offered. This introductory course has an outline that is a bit incomplete, but at least it’s not copy and pasted from a book like several of their other course descriptions. The Knowledge Academy has a ‘best price guarantee’ on their website, but still remain the most expensive After Effects training option we could find in Australia for a regularly run course. The course webpage also refers to Photoshop CS5 training, we assume that too is a copy and paste moment. After Effects Introduction has ‘Adobe Certification’ listed at the top, but there’s no explanation if that means The Knowledge Academy is certified, or the instructor. If you attend, you get manuals and certificates, but again, no details on what you actually get, or who grants you the certificate. You should definitely get more details directly before booking.

The Knowledge Academy

Level 13, 2 Park Street, Sydney NSW 2000

LINK TO COURSE

COURSE TITLE: Adobe After Effects Advanced

LOCATION(S): Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Darwin

SUMMARY:

Coming to you from a ‘luxury location’ (read: a hotel in nearly every major city in the developed world) The Knowledge Academy claims to be Australia’s largest training provider and offers advanced After Effects training in several of the major cities. There is no mention of any sort of Adobe Certification, though some of the people who teach do have their own Adobe certification – you’ll need to ask if that’s important to you. The course outline is rather brief, but does mention some of After Effects more elaborate features and definitely qualifies as ‘advanced’. You will need previous experience in Adobe After Effects, preferably the ‘intro’ level course offered by The Knowledge Academy. This is the most expensive Adobe After Effects training we have seen in Australia – so be sure to get more detail on what the training actually covers. Use the contact page, as the live help is in a different time zone to Australia. The training includes an After Effects manual, a certificate (probably from the Knowledge Academy rather than Adobe) and refreshments.
