Future Media Concepts Adds Four New Training Courses in iPad® Support and Development

New York, NY – January 31, 2012 - Future Media Concepts (FMC), the nation's premier digital media training organization, today announced it has added four new courses to its roster of iPad® training courses. FMC will offer the courses for iPad owners, app developers, and IT support personnel in response to the device's rapid adoption and ever increasing popularity.

"The iPad managed to penetrate 50 percent of Fortune 100 companies within 90 days of its release," said Jeff Rothberg, FMC president and co-founder. "This trend of Apple® for business is only increasing as workplaces find new, innovative ways to use the iPad. Because specific apps can be developed for different business needs, the possibilities for businesses — and for developers and IT — are endless. That's why training is so important."

FMC has created two new iPad courses for IT personnel. "iPad Support Essentials" is for IT workers who provide support in a professional environment. The course will introduce students to apps that help them manage company networks and provide iPad support to employees. "iPad Deployment" is for IT managers who use the iPad on a daily basis in their professional environment. They will learn how to deploy and maintain iOS-based devices and provisions for apps developed in-house.

The other two new courses are "Publishing on iPad," in which developers will learn to use Adobe® InDesign® to create, distribute, monetize, and optimize engaging content and publications for iPad and other devices; and "iPad Basics" designed for new iPad owners who want to learn how to use the device efficiently in casual and professional environments.

The new iPad training classes complement FMC's "Fundamentals of Objective-C Programming," a two-day course in iOS for both programmers and non-programmers who want a confident start to learning Objective-C and iOS development.
