COURSE TITLE: After Effects Training

LOCATIONS: Auckland, Wellington

SUMMARY:

Bring Your Own Laptop is one of New Zealand’s best regarded and most established Adobe training centres. Their Adobe After Effects training is Adobe certified and offers a complete introduction to After Effects for the beginner, or a chance to fill the gaps in your knowledge if you are self-taught.

This is hands-on training for After Effects that doesn’t just come straight out of Adobe After Effects Classroom in Book like so many courses around the world. You’ll learn by creating interesting projects that have industry standard outcomes.

The course is written to not only take you from no knowledge to being able to grasp the essentials, the training is based around practical applications that you’ll use every day.

Bring Your Own Laptop lets you borrow their laptop for the training, or of course bring the one you’re comfortable with, and back their After Effects training with email support, printed notes based on the actual course you took, and if you don’t think you got it all, you can take the class again for free within 12 months.

The course outline reveals training that gets you literally from one end of After Effects to the other, import to export with workflow and all the tools in the middle. And best of all, it’s real time training where you get to learn by doing, and you have the help you need at every step. No one gets left behind.

COURSE TITLE: Adobe After Effects

The Knowledge Academy

ADDRESS: 71 Mayoral Drive Cnr Vincent Street Auckland New Zealand 1010

 

LINK TO COURSE

COURSE TITLE: Adobe After Effects Intermediate

LOCATIONS: Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington, Dunedin, Hamilton, Napier

SUMMARY:

The Knowledge Academy are based in England and offer IT training and several Adobe courses around the world.

Their website has very little information about what you will be learning - the 3 bullet points on the webpage are truly random and the reference to the 3rd dimension is limited considering After Effects works in 4.

The bulk of the text on the course page is a list of academic facilities in the city whose course page you have selected, no references to actual Adobe After Effects training.

They do tell you that your training will be carried out by world class instructors, but there is no mention of any Adobe certification or industry experience. The facility listed is not their own, but rather a series of hotels or rooms for rent there is a selection of the luxury locations nationwide that you can choose from.

You will have to contact the Knowledge Academy via their website, though the live chat is in a different time zone to New Zealand and was constantly unavailable you’ll need to email them.

In our survey of After Effects training in 3 countries, this is by far the most expensive course offered with the least amount of information offered. They do guarantee the best price but for what is unclear.

COURSE TITLE: Adobe After Effects Introduction

LOCATIONS: Auckland, Christchurch, Wellington, Dunedin, Hamilton, Napier

SUMMARY:

Hailing from England, The Knowledge Academy offer a dizzying array of IT and business courses, and few Adobe ones as well.

The web page for After Effects training in New Zealand offers you Photoshop CS5 training, and would you like to speak with a Photoshop CS5 advisor? It’s safe to assume there’s some out of date copy and paste work on the course page.

You will get manuals and certification so we assume you’ll be getting the Adobe certificated of completion and probably a PDF of the After Effects Manual that comes free with the software.

A brief introduction states that you’ll become familiar with the After Effects interface, working with layers, animation, masks, mattes and exporting. Hopefully the rest it’s not about the 2010 version of Photoshop as listed on the page.

The course is intended for people who wish to work in video and mentions you might be more interested in web content or broadcast video – people new to After Effects.

The training locations listed are rooms for rent or hotels around New Zealand. Visit the site to find out where and when the training is close to you. They do list the Rendezvous Hotel in Auckland at the bottom of the course page.

This is the most expensive After Effects training you can get in New Zealand.
