Course Overview:

You do not need to have any non-linear editing experience or any familiarity with using Adobe Premiere Pro for this class.  Learn how to use Premiere Pro, one of the world’s most popular and robust non-linear editing (NLE) systems, in a forensic media environment.

Premiere Pro is not only used as a tool in forensic media processing but also for creative case derivatives and demonstrative samples within ongoing investigations or courtroom proceedings.

Through participatory practice and case-based learning, you will solidify and retain in-depth knowledge of the software’s core features, allowing you to feel comfortable and confident in adding Adobe Premiere Pro into your daily workflow.

By the end of the course, you will have a fundamental foundation in video editing and will be equipped to create basic video content with confidence and skill. 

Class begins each day at 8 AM.  On Friday, class will be dismissed by 4:30 PM.

Students must bring their own provide laptops for use in class containing the needed software.  Downloadable demo versions are available. Click on the link below for complete details.
