Apple Final Cut Pro X 10.4 Course Reviews:

“Can’t wait to take similar offerings! This Final Cut training course has taken away the mystery and replaced it with nothing but excitement to start using this tool.” – Craig D. – The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc. 

“I really found this to be a wonderful experience. Super informative, helpful, and (considering how long you spent in the classroom) done in an entertaining manner. The small class size was wonderful for moving along quickly and effectively, and the entire operation was professional yet personable. I look forward to taking at least one more class here in the future, and plan to keep in touch with my instructor, whose depth of experience and knowledge brought so much to the experience.” -Ebony W. – Downtown DC 

“[The Instructor] was awesome in that it’s clear that he knows his stuff. His metaphors and examples to illustrate specific terms was helpful for a FCPX newbie like me. This is the best training center I’ve ever been to in my professional career. The staff are amazingly friendly, and they anticipate the needs of their customers.” – Maya M. – NIH
