FMC Strikes Gold Again With Apple® Gold Level Training Designation

Digital Media Training Organization Earns Top Training Recognition from Apple® Every Year Since Program Began

New York, NY – Feb. 21, 2012 – Future Media Concepts (FMC), the nation's premier digital media training organization, today announced its training centers have again received the elite Gold Level training designation from Apple® for the third year in a row. Of all the training centers in the United States, only a handful have earned Gold Level status, 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.

"Apple's Authorized Training Center program is designed to recognize and reward outstanding training centers, and I'm happy to report that FMC has earned this distinction every year since the program has been in existence," said Jeff Rothberg, FMC president and co-founder. "The credit for this achievement goes to our certified instructors who bring expertise and real-world experience to the classroom, and consistently earn high praise from students."

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 University of the State of New York Educational Department, where FMC's headquarters are located.

For those looking to receive Apple Final Cut Pro® X certification, FMC will hold an accelerated prep course followed by a certification exam at the 2012 NAB Show, April 16-19 in Las Vegas. The training is part of Post|Production World, a full slate of manufacturer-certified training courses for production and post-production professionals coproduced by FMC and the NAB Show. More information and registration for Post|Production World is available at www.nabshow.com under education, then training.
