"It is with pleasure that I offer this letter of recommendation for Future Media Concepts. My experience has been positive and beneficial to my professional growth.
From my initial contact with your Washington DC office, to the completion of this round of classes my impression of FMC and the overall experience has been extremely positive.
Your instructors are top notch professionals who bring a wealth of industry knowledge to the classroom. More important than their experience is their ability to tailor the material to their audience, which as a teaching professional myself I recognize as a skill that's paramount to success. Please relay my compliments to Shawn Dessaigne, Katie Houghton and Tony Calardo...
Thank you for your attentiveness to your students needs and your attention to detail in every respect."
Stephen S. Knepp
Apple Certified Pro | Final Cut Pro X, Level One
"I'd like to let you know that the software training I've received at your branch has been the best in my experience of having taken workshops all across the country.
The workshops I've taken are Motion, Color and both Boris sessions – all with Jeff Greenberg. Besides the software training, I've learned so much from Jeff about teaching and making effective presentations. I use those skills in my own classroom instruction.
And guess what? Since taking the first workshop with Jeff, two of my students have received awards in California Community College sponsored film/video competitions.
It's so good to know that I've passed on the knowledge and skills that I received at FMC. Thank you so much!"

Assistant Professor of Film/TV Production
"Recently, a work colleague and I attended the class Final Cut 101- An Intro to Final Cut Pro offered by your organization. Although we were both familiar with this program from years of working with it, we were seeking Apple Certification. We were both impressed and pleased with the course structure and instruction that we received.
We were also impressed with the knowledge level of our instructor, Beau Tardy, and the exceptional and comfortable atmosphere that Future Media Concepts, Inc. provided. As employees of MiND TV, we not only use Final Cut Pro for our own work, we also train members of our television station on how to use the program. This class has strengthened not only our own knowledge of the program, but also our ability to teach others.
Thank you again for a wonderful class!"
"I'm writing this letter as a quick note to commend one of your employees Jennifer Herman, Corporate Account Manager.
I first visited the Philadelphia offices of FMC during the summer of 2008 to inquire and learn about the various programs of study that were available to me. I was greeted warmly and professionally by Jennifer who took the time to answer my questions and then give me a tour of the facility.
Based on the information I received from Jennifer that day, I decided to enroll at FMC in the Media Composer Master Class. As of today, I've completed all but one of the courses.
Throughout my studies at FMC, whenever I had questions or needed help, Jennifer was always there with answers and ready to help. I appreciate that. And I think it's important to recognize a job well done. She is really a great asset to your company."
"I want to take a moment to thank your staff at Future Media Concepts very much for its personalized attention to my needs over the past few days.
Jennifer Herman and Cathleen Peters were particularly attentive to my scheduling needs, financial agreements, class requests, and all the other details that make your digital media instruction offerings a success.
I would also like to point out the advantages that swayed me to enroll in your continuing education classes. First, the classes are directly specific to my needs. Because your classes are concentrated in scope, they are attractive to a busy professional like me, circumventing my need to attend a full seminar of college to learn my lessons. Your classes are shaped to take into account my existing professional entertainment experience, thus avoiding the basic, but necessary aesthetics and general business education. Finally, the real-world, off-book, tips and tricks that your Certified Instructor's experience provides is particularly valuable to me.
I learned a tremendous amount in the short time I spent in your classes, and I intend to return for more. Thanks for providing me with a good foundation on which to build my skills, and for the great start in my career expansion. I look forward to our flourishing relationship."

"I would certainly recommend Future Media Concepts to anyone with serious aspirations of success in their creative business...of course, a training facility is only as good as its instructors and in that respect FMC deserves a gold medal..."
Sierra Military Health Services, Inc
"The staff is without a doubt one of the best in the multimedia training industry. I will continue to use FMC for my multimedia training in the future."
"You without a doubt have the best video and graphics training facility that I have ever been to...All the instructors that you have chosen are the very, very best in their field."
"Most important, the instructor was great. He was the first instructor that kept me interested in class the whole time. His technique of teaching us made understanding the application better."

"The small class size provide an excellent environment to learn and receive hands on instructions. So much information is provided that you need to make your brain a sponge just to absorb it all. Plus I'm certain that the course was one of the key factors to my hiring at Comcast Sportsnet."
"Thank you so much for all you taught me during my Boris class. I learned a lot in an entertaining way...My boss was also very appreciative of all the new skills I had learned. I would (and do) highly recommend Future Media Concepts to anyone who wants to further their skills. Keep up the good work and I hope to take another class with you guys soon."
"I write with appreciation for the valuable training our team has received at Future Media Concepts...the feedback from the team has consistently been extremely positive...we appreciate the Passport programs, it has provided effective training opportunities to out team members, at a great value."
