I Love The Structure Of How These Classes Are Set Up!
THIS IS AMAZING! I've only ever learned by jumping into the software and figuring things out as I go. But I love the structure of how these classes are set up. Psychologically, we aren't meant to sit for long hours a day without multiple breaks as they will teach in school often. But the workflow, the staff, the structure is all astounding. I've learned and retained so much; I feel comfortable enough to teach others the software I've learned! -PGCC, Sean (Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve 16 Advanced Live Hands-On Instructor-Led Certification Training Class)
