Orlando - Testimonials
My name is Stacy Bick and I attended the 2019 Adobe Bootcamp session in Orlando, FL for 6 days to further my Adobe skill sets of 15 years within the broadcast and academic field. It was a huge success!
The successful outcome was in large part due to Deidra Manthey’s remarkable professionalism, cooperation and resourcefulness to coordinate various requirements. Deidra is a valuable asset to your company and I am contacting you to commend her work performance.
Thank you so much again for providing such an AMAZING training for me and my team. We enjoyed every aspect of the time we spent in Orlando. Sylus is truly a great facilitator and we all agree that we learned a lot.
Also, I just want to say how much it touched our heart that you would go and purchase something for our children. You are a special lady and I believe your kindness will be rewarded. We appreciate how much you went above and beyond what we even expected. We will recommend your training to others.
The team is already discussing that they would like to attend additional trainings on Adobe products, so don’t be surprised if you hear from us again in the future.

"First and foremost, Nielsen would like to take the opportunity to thank the staff of Future Media Concepts and Mark Sullivan for the experience received during our Avid 101/110 Media Composer Training.
Mark enriched the training experience by tailoring the course curriculum to Nielsen’s specific needs, while covering the course curriculum essentials. He addressed all questions and inquiries to their fullest, and took opportunities to enhance the learning experience by explaining video editing best practices based on personal, real world experience. Mark also made himself available outside of the scheduled training class hours to review and assist with questions and concepts that required reinforcement. His relaxed and light humored approach to teaching provided an open environment to comfortably ask questions. Mark thoroughly knows and understands the course material and is a seasoned trainer as well.
With regard to FMC, the Orlando facilities were fantastic. The workstations were well sized, allowing students the room to keep course material and notepads accessible for reference. Computer monitors were appropriately sized for the course material and the latest software and tools were installed. Furthermore, the FMC on-site staff were warm, welcoming, and attentive, ensuring our training experience was positive.
Overall, the Nielsen staff received the level of training we had hoped for and look forward to taking advantage of both FMC’s refresher course benefits and continued future training opportunities."

"I have always felt so comforted and encouraged by your friendly staff of FMC employees and instructors! Now, having completed a number of classes with you in Orlando, I can say that I feel as though I am part of your family. Everyday I train with you is a new rewarding experience! I can truly admit I feel well understood and that opinions as students and client are respected and valuable!
Again, from the very beginning, I have had nothing but a positive learning experience at your Orlando branch and am so excited to enroll in more classes with you! I always am looking forward to seeing familiar faces and gaining new experiences!!"
"This was the first time I had visited your facility, and I was blown away by the top notch staff and training."
"From my very first class, I have learned so much about digital media and have been able to network with many of my fellow students! I have had such a rewarding time here with your informative, certified instructors and friendly staff!"
"The class and instructor were motivating, instructive, and beneficial to my job in the Adventist Health System. The staff was also most helpful in hosting the class and was readily available to respond to any questions I had."

"I have been to other computer trainings facilities and they are usually so packed with students that you come away feeling like you got lost in the crowd- I was so very glad that this time it was not the case, since I really need help with this particular training and needed a lot of my questions answer by an expert. The fact that your classes were very small made it so much easier to get full attention and personalization from our training.
I also have to commend you on your office staff; they were all very helpful and friendly. The training rooms were comfortable and the computer equipment first class-I also like the snacks and drinks offering.
I’m already drafting a proposal to my direction in order to take additional courses later on this year and in 2012, as well as recommending your courses to my peers."
"Each and every time that I have attended training at FMC, it has been a rigorous and satisfying experience. The instructors are knowledgeable, patient and have the ability to deliver information in an organized, thoughtful manner.
The equipment is modern and imaged routinely to keep training operations running smoothly with the latest versions of the software used in training.
The facilities are comfortable, accessible and lend themselves greatly to the training atmosphere. (Thankfully the coffeepot is always running.)
As with any endeavor that attempts to satisfy all customers, problems arise. The support staff at the Orlando facility have met and overcome each and every obstacle thrown at them with graciousness and creativity."

"I signed on for the Server Essentials class, and after a week in Orlando at Future Media Concepts, I was able to return to my work confident and able to fix existing server issues, and even to correct some flaws in our initial configurations!
For the Server Essentials class, Anthony Calardo was my instructor. From the beginning, he demonstrated mastery of the course content, and a solid understanding of everything Apple.
Our organization has several Xserve machines serving over 1200 users and providing a range of services. The Apple IT classes I took from Future Media Concepts have enabled me to integrate services, and create a better use experience for both staff and students at our organization.
It was a pleasure for me to be able to take part in a program that was so well prepared and executed. Taking courses in different locations throughout the United States can be a bit intimidating and sometimes overwhelming. The course curriculum was presented in a very logical yet simplified format. Classes are kept small and personal thus eliminating potential distractions caused by larger venues.
A special thanks to Cari for her thoughtfulness and kind-hearted behavior.”

"On short notice FMC Orlando scheduled a class and an instructor that could teach us within the time constraints. We appreciate the way you and the staff went out of the way for us. The personal attention and excellent communication made us feel as though we were your only client."
"From our initial conversations in June 2010, I knew Future Media Concepts was a step above the other digital media training centers...
Eight courses later, every instructor and course taken has surpassed my expectations. Whether it be an Adobe Illustrator or an iPhone Application Development course, the instructor is not only a talented teacher who is passionate about their course material, but is also a professional actively using the digital media he or she teaches in his or her own business. With FMC’s highly knowledgeable instructors covering course lessons in a few days which rival material studied over a full semester at a university, it’s no wonder why professionals from all corners of the globe travel to FMC training centers to further their education and transform their careers."

"I would like to write concerning my recent training session in Orlando Florida, August 1st through August 7th 2004. The class was the LightWave Master class and it involved six days of work with the complex 3D modeling, rendering and animation software package. Our instructor was Michael Young from New York. The facilities in Orlando were first rate. It was a brand new building and you had all of the latest computer equipment and software available which really was great especially when dealing with processor intensive work such as the case with LightWave.
The fact that you pride yourself on the small class size is amazing and let me tell you, it was like having a pure one-on-one session with one of the best instructors I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Our class had a total of three people and if at any moment a question was raised, Michael would be right at my computer screen helping me out. The content of the course was very manageable from the first day to the last and never at any moment did I feel out of place, lost or frustrated. I learned more than I ever thought I would and the experience shattered all expectations.
To comment on your staff . . . wow. They were exceptional! Mostly noted should be Karla Elgin. While I was getting signed up, she was more than courteous, informative and willing to work with me on certain issues. Once in Orlando, she was just as helpful and accommodating. Your staff really made the experience unforgettable.
I would highly recommend you to everyone I know in the industry and for anyone else looking to enhance their skills in whatever classes you're offering. From this experience, I know that FMC will deliver a great learning environment, staff and facilitate the best possible experience for the student. Thanks FMC and I hope to be in another class very soon!"

"First of all, I want to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation in a job well done. The Avid 101 - Editing with Avid Media Composer course I attended was excellent. It was very informative with much subject matter covered, although I didn't feel overwhelmed. I think the reasoning was due to the small class size. However, the instructor, Sergio, also was key. His thorough subject knowledge, superb teaching ability and motivation were all evident not just to me, but the entire class. Kudos on all fronts!
Thank you again very much."

"...Chiho was our instructor for the Final Cut Pro Master Class. Because he actively works in the video editing industry with Final Cut Pro and is an active member of the Final Cut Pro user community, he provided us with real world experience and insight into the program What's more, he was able to reach each of us at our respective levels of computer-based knowledge..."view full letter
"Thank you so much for the hospitality you showed me last week during Flex 3: Developing Rich Client Applications and Flex 3: LiveCycle Data Services training. Organizing and attending the classes were easily the finest experience I've had with education providers. Your facilities were immaculate and comfortable as well.
Our trainer, Charles Brown, was nothing short of fantastic. He presented the material in a well organized and appropriately paced fashion. While challenging, there wasn't a time during the class that he allowed us to over extend comfort level with the material. He made sure we had mastered that principle before moving on the the next topic. This was very refreshing and much appreciated.

"I really enjoyed attending the InDesign Training earlier this WEEK! The instructor was very through and she maintained a speed that was easy to stay focused with without bogging down the day! I went away with a better understanding of the program and its MANY uses."
"I recently took the Adobe Indesign CS2 class on 4/19-4/20. First off, I thought it was an excellent class and our instructor was extremely well versed in the product. I plan on coming back to your facility when our budget calls for more training."

"Wanted to let you know that I enjoyed attending the Premiere Pro course,and meeting you and your staff. Katherine did a great job and opened my eyes to all the possibilities residing in the program covered, as well as the rest of the Adobe suite. Thank you for all your help and courtesy. Overall this was a very good experience and it has already been conveyed to my peers as such."

"I wanted to thank you for the outstanding Captivate class that I attended at your facility. As a technology instructor for Orange County, I found the quality of instruction exceptional. I have reported my assessment to the CIO, and we hope to utilize your facility in the future for any Adobe or Macromedia instruction."

"I just thought I'd write to let you know that I had a great time over there this past week. I really learned a lot and I can't wait to incorporate what I learned into my projects.
Luisa was awesome! Now I can see why you use only Adobe certified instructors. I don't know if she told you, but since all of us were picking it up so quickly, we were able to go beyond the class outline and learn some extra techniques for the last few hours of day two!"

"Just a quick note to let you know that we were extremely satisfied with the 101 & 110 training. Nicole Martinez did an outstanding job teaching us "old geezers" the ins and outs of the Media Composer. Bob Marvel and I thought the facilities and learning environment were great. We hope to take some of the other advanced courses in the future."
"I just got back from an incredible Final Cut training class at Future Media Concepts in Orlando. It was more than I could ever expect from a training class. I signed up for the three day FCP 101 class. I arrived the first day and found out I had not been registered due to a mix up by my company. Karla was more than helpful and called in an instructor from Tampa even though I was the only one in the class. Sean arrived and we went through the entire tutorial in 9 hours. We had to finish early due to an impending hurricane! This did not stop Sean from teaching me to correct many of my self taught errors I was doing while editing. It was power learning from the start!!!!
I now have the knowledge to edit with confidence and speed that I could not have had without the Future Media Concept experience. On top of that I was invited back to audit the three day class again at a future date with no charge! This was by far the best learning experience I have had in my 20 years plus of television production. I will return for more!"

"I would like to this opportunity to express my utmost appreciation and thanks for my training experience this week. Sean is truly great at using his real world experience and enthusiasm for his craft to open the minds of his students. I would recommend FMC to anyone who truly wants to gain a leg up on the latest post production technology."
"Thank you for all of your help in arranging our on-site Adobe InDesign training session. I appreciate your effort to accommodate our changing schedule so close to the holidays. I found Future Media Concepts through the Adobe Web site, and as an Adobe Solutions Network Training Provider, I knew FMC would provide top-notch instruction for my students and me. We got that, and much more...
FMC's training was educationally effective and cost effective. We covered more in two days than I could have expected from a similar college course over an entire term - yet the pace of the classes allowed us to really absorb the material, ask questions, work out problems, etc."

"I just wanted to thank you for such a successful training experience I had this week. Aechelon Technology enrolled me in the Photoshop class and it was really an enjoyable week. Your facility is first class and your staff is friendly and helpful. Our instructor, Sean, was not only knowledgeable but very professional as well. I thought his ability to apply his real world experiences to the lessons added great substance and value to the training. I would definitely recommend FMC and especially Sean as an instructor to anyone that was interested."
