Avid Education Summits are back and better than ever, with more training, exclusive seminars and sessions. At this year’s events July 23 and 24 in Los Angeles and Manchester, U.K., Avid Learning Partners (ALPs), certified instructors and educators from the Americas and Europe will come together to discuss the latest updates from Avid and circulate training back to students and learners everywhere.

Avid Education Summits are essential events for Avid educators looking to get up to speed with the latest product features, updates and curriculums. These entirely free-of-charge events include a whole host of Avid Everywhere program and platform updates, workshop seminars, guest speakers and live Avid Certified Instructor (ACI) recertification training.

Hosted at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles and the University of Salford’s MediaCity U.K. Campus in Manchester, the Avid Education Summits for ALPs and ACIs are bookended by two weeks of instructor training classes.

From July 18-22 and July 25-29, there’s no better time for educators to get the advanced training they’ve been waiting for with 100-, 200- and 300-level classes for Media Composer, iNews, VENUE, Sibelius and Pro Tools, all scheduled to coincide with the Summit events so that educators can cover all bases in one trip.

At our Los Angeles event Sunday, July 24, Avid and The LA Film School will host an exclusive film screening featuring Oscar-nominated editor Kevin Tent, ACE. As a member of the American Cinema Editors guild and the editor of such notable films as Sideways, Nebraska, The Descendants and Blow, Kevin will discuss his decades of experience as a feature film editor. Admission to the screening is included with registration for the Avid Education Summit.

At our Manchester event, we’re holding an exclusive session with Inside The Edit’s Paddy Bird, who has worked on some of the world’s most renowned television shows, including “X Factor,” “Big Brother” and “Wife Swap” — plus numerous high-end political, historical and observational documentaries. Hosting his editing masterclass, Bird will share valuable techniques and provide key insights on the art of TV editing, taking the next generation of editing professionals through high end crafting secrets that are not taught in film schools, training courses or manuals.

Other agenda topics across both U.S. and U.K. events include:

  • Learning Partner Program updates
  • “What’s New” Training
  • ACI recertification training
  • NewBlue SX
  • Sonnox
  • Networking and socialising with Avid’s Education community
