We also offer courses which give learners a professional grounding in post-production techniques using:

Our courses are delivered by industry professionals from our fully-equipped digital media studio in London’s Westland Place Studios in Hoxton.


How do I know whether to learn Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro?

The decision about whether to learn Apple Final Cut Pro or Adobe Premiere Pro will usually come down to whether you use a Mac or not – or whether you are already using the Adobe Creative Cloud.

Apple Final Cut Pro is designed for running on Mac OS, so if you work on a Mac this is a good option. Apple Final Cut Pro is a one-time purchase, rather than a subscription model, which some users favour.

However, if you are using Creative Cloud already, you won’t need to need purchase Adobe Premiere Pro separately, so this may be a more cost-effective choice for you. What’s more, Adobe Premiere Pro offers users the option of using it on either Mac OS or Windows OS.


What will I learn on the Apple Final Cut Pro course?

All our courses are designed to empower learners to use industry-leading software solutions with confidence. Our expert tutors will adapt the course so it goes at your pace – so whether you are a seasoned professional or completely new to the solution, you will go home with practical skills you can put to use immediately.

Our Apple Final Cut Pro course gives learners the opportunity to get comfortable with using a range of editing functions while getting to know their way around the Apple Final Cut Pro user interface.


What will I learn on the Adobe Premiere Pro course?

Our Adobe Premier Pro takes a similar approach to our other video editing course. Our expert tutors will adapt the course to your own abilities – so absolute beginners and seasoned professionals can come away feeling like they have learnt valuable techniques and tips.

The course will take learners through the entire video editing process – from selecting clips to creating a finished work. Gain confidence with using the standard editing functions and Adobe Premiere Pro’s project management features whilst getting to know your way around with the application interface.

You can then move on to augment these video editing skills with professional post-production techniques using Adobe After Effects.


What will I learn on the Adobe After Effects course?

Adobe After Effects is a very powerful tool for applying motion graphics and other visual effects to your video content. This makes it an essential tool for a wide range of professionals, including: motion graphics designers, web designers, rich media artists and broadcast video editors.

Our After Effects course is delivered by industry professionals who will adapt the pace of the course to individual requirements – ensuring that the course is useful for both novices and professionals who would like to increase their confidence when using this immensely powerful post-production software.


Are your courses suitable as refresher courses?

Yes, while we recommend our courses as a great introduction to these powerful video editing and post-production software tools, they are equally useful for professionals who would like to brush up on their skills.

If you’ve had a break where you haven’t used the software on a daily or weekly basis, a refresher course will be perfect for you – helping you to start to use it again with confidence.

However, even if you are using the software on a weekly basis, the speed at which Adobe pushes out updates and new features through its Creative Cloud model may mean that you aren’t fully taking advantage of all the latest tools and techniques.

We therefore recommend refresher courses every few years in all design and creative software that you are using regularly.


Why should I choose Platform 39?

What makes Platform 39 different from other training providers?

Our expert tutors are also professional designers with active practices, this is something that we absolutely insist upon. If I tutor hasn’t used the software he or she teaches in a professional context, they simply won’t be knowledgeable of everyday situations and problems often encountered. Our tutors can give you the kind of support and advice that you need to handle real-world design challenges – the kind of advice that doesn’t appear in the software manuals. Our people are what makes us.


What happens after my course?

After the course, you will receive a Platform 39 certificate of course attendance, as well as the course notes. We also provide email support for up to a month after you complete a course with us – so you can reach out for additional support if you need to.


Do your courses come with any guarantee?

If you come away from the course feeling you haven’t achieved everything you expected to, based on what we listed on the course content, you simply need to tell us within 48 hours and we will arrange for you to take the course again with us at no additional cost to yourself.

We offer this guarantee for your peace of mind – however, experience tells us you’ll have a great day with us and come away excited to put your new skills into practice.
