Premiere Pro Testimonials

I recommend this course very highly. Having had very little experience using Premiere Pro before attending, I will now return to my workplace confident I have the skills and knowledge to cut videos from start to finish. The quality of teaching was outstanding: delivered in a clear and logical manner, perfect pace, and with good supporting material. Thank-you very much.
Mark M, Communications Advisor
This course was exactly what I needed to kickstart our video-first b2b digital marketing activities. It eased in from fundamentals through to more advanced at an even pace, building confidence and comprehension. Would recommend to anyone looking to reacquaint themselves with video creation.
Daniel M, Marketing
The City Desktop Training greatly improved my knowledge of Premiere Pro and gave me a rock solid foundation going forward with video editing.

Premiere Pro Essentials at City Desktop was a comprehensive introduction to the program that offered a broad range of knowledge on a variety of relevant, practical topics.

While I was familiar with other editing programs, I had not used Premiere Pro prior to this course, but feel confident after the Essentials course to get the job done, learn more and increase my output speed. I will be back for the Advanced course!

his was a fantastic course. I only knew the basics of Premiere Pro and was mainly self taught so it was great to learn the faster and more convenient ways of using the program
