Course description

Introduction to Adobe After Effects -  A 2-day motion graphics training course for beginners. 

Live Online Training lets you join a live training course from your place of work or home. 

This two-day Introduction to Adobe After Effects course is designed to provide delegates with a comprehensive knowledge of the techniques and tools needed to carry out common motion graphics, video compositing and visual effects tasks in After Effects.

Also introduced are some of the more advanced features available in After Effects, including keying, tracking, 3D space and shape layers. 

Fully accredited by Adobe, the programme is delivered via a combination of  lecture, demonstration and hands-on practice by a tutor who is both an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) and an Adobe Certified Expert (ACE) in After Effects.

Our approach to online training

You participate in the same After Effects course as in-class delegates, and we do everything possible to make your experience as close as possible to actually being in the classroom…

  • Your course is Adobe-accredited, hosted by an Adobe Certified Instructor (ACI) with vast experience of using After Effects professionally.
  • You can see and hear our trainer, the other delegates and our trainer’s screen.
  • Our trainer and the other delegates can see you (via your webcam) and hear you.
  • We’ll post you a printed training guide, and make the course files and resources available for you to download.
  • Your training is hands-on: you’ll practice and carry out exercises throughout.
  • If you're learning to use an application and don’t have access to the software, we’ll send you a link to fully-functional trial software that you can download and install.
  • If you need assistance, you can share your screen with our trainer, and pass control to them.
  • Should you want to send a private message to your trainer, you can do so using chat.
  • You’ll receive an e-certificate confirming successful completion of an Adobe-accredited course.
  • You’re entitled to 30 days’ email support from your trainer.

Self-funders can spread the cost over 12 months, interest-free.

Chris was an amazing tutor, he was very helpful and worked at everyone's pace. He always recapped and if I didn't understand he would always go back and repeat the demonstration. The communication between Chris and I was good and I feel that I was supported throughout this course.
