Our signature Six-Week Intensive is a jump-start for anyone looking for a career in editing. Learn Avid, Final Cut Pro and After Effects, work with top editors, and create a professional reel to let your talent speak for itself.
Weekend and one-week classes introduce and solidify the core concepts, while custom one on ones let you set your goals at your own pace.
Corporate and group training customizes a curriculum, either in-house or on-site, for professionals eager to learn a new skill or to build on an existing one.
Our instructors are working editors, web designers, sound engineers and designers, cinematographers, producers, directors, colorists, motion graphics artists, as well as certified Avid, Apple, Autodesk, Assimilate and Adobe trainers. A maximum teacher to student ratio of 1:6* ensures individualized attention and allows students to work at their own pace.
All classes are split between lecture and hands-on exercise-so you’ll be cutting on your own edit system from day one.

What does it mean to be certified?
Certification provides an official recognition of your skills. It is a way to differentiate yourself from the many people who use the applications to potential employers or clients.
Will I be certified after completing the course?
Our certified Apple and Avid courses are a great starting point on your path to certification and are designed to produce winning results on the certification exams.
Can I take the certification exam at your facility?
Certification exams are administered by appointment only. Our Apple and Avid level I exams are currently free for any student enrolled in one of our certified courses. For those wishing to take the exam without taking a class, the exam cost is $150. To schedule an exam, please call 212.414.9570 or email us.
Do I need any prior editing or computer knowledge in order to take the course?
Our intro level courses as well as the Six Week Intensive, assume no prior knowledge of editing or software involved. Previous experience is required for advanced courses.

For those with no Mac experience, we recommend taking a basic introductory Macintosh computer class prior to your Manhattan Edit Workshop course.
