EditShare Academy registration is now open offering online and instructor-led courses that equip all those involved with content creation with the tools to build open and secure media workflows.
EditShare today announced that registration is now open for its EditShare Academy authorized training and certification program. A modern approach to advancing professional development and technical mastery of EditShare solutions, EditShare Academy offers online and instructor-led courses within a tiered certification curriculum that equips IT administrators, video professionals, and sales associates with the knowledge to design and deploy open, secure EditShare-powered production and editorial workflows around industry-leading creative solutions.
EditShare Academy reflects ther whole concept behind the company, which is a technology leader that specializes in collaboration, security, and intelligent storage solutions for media creation and management. As Conrad Clemson, EditShare’s CEO said on the launch of the EditShare Academy 2020, “… EditShare was born out of a creative storyteller not having the tools he needed. Our founder Andy Lehman was shooting content in sub-zero temperatures at the North Pole and moving small drives between tents as groups of editors and loggers tried desperately to keep warm while logging and editing their individual content. It was that day in that live situation that Andy said there must be a better way”.
Online and instructor-led courses
In the same way the company developed solutions to simplify the workflow challenges faced by professionals, EditShare now developed the EditShare Academy , “to ensure you receive the training and tools you need to successfully utilize those solutions”. With a modern approach to advancing professional development and technical mastery of EditShare solutions, EditShare Academy offers online and instructor-led courses within a tiered certification curriculum that equips IT administrators, video professionals, and sales associates with the knowledge to design and deploy open, secure EditShare-powered production and editorial workflows around industry-leading creative solutions.
