FMC Again Receives Apple® Gold Level Training Designation

Digital Media Training Organization Earns Top Certification from Apple

New York, NY – April 19, 2011 – Future Media Concepts, the nation's premier digital media training organization, today announced its training centers have again received the elite Gold level training designation from Apple®. Of all the training programs in the United States, only 11 have earned Apple Gold, and six of these are FMC centers. To earn Gold level status, an Apple-authorized training center must offer a comprehensive set of courses and meet standards for course, instructor, and overall educational quality based on student evaluations.

"This achievement is a testament to our hard-working and committed instructors, who are not only certified by the maufacturers but possess real-world experience that they incorporate into the classes they teach," said Jeff Rothberg, FMC president and co-founder. "Our instructors take great pride in their work, and this is reflected in the outstanding evaluations they receive from students."

Some of FMC's Apple courses include the full range of Mac OS X® Snow Leopard®, and Final Cut Pro courses along with Apple Logic Pro. All courses are intended to lead to Apple certification, which helps professionals distinguish themselves and their organizations in today's competitive marketplace. FMC is also licensed by the board of education in the state of New York, where its headquarters are located.

For those looking to receive Apple certification, FMC is running a dedicated conference. The iTraining Bootcamp is scheduled to take place May 17-24 in Orlando, Fla. For more information and registration, visit www.iTrainingBootcamp.com, or contact Jack Reilly, event manager, at [email protected].
