What does it mean to be certified?

Certification provides an official recognition of your skills. It is a way to differentiate yourself from the many people who use the applications to potential employers or clients.

Will I be certified after completing the course?

Our certified Adobe, Apple and Avid courses are a great starting point on your path to certification and are designed to produce winning results on the certification exams.

Can I take the certification exam at your facility?

Certification exams are administered by appointment only. Our Apple (FCPX, Motion, Logic Pro X), and Avid (MC 101 & MC 110), exams are currently free for any student enrolled in one of our certified courses.  For those wishing to take the exam without taking a class, the exam cost is $150. To schedule an exam, please call 212.414.9570 or email us.

Do I need any prior editing or computer knowledge in order to take the course?

Our intro level courses as well as the Six Week Intensive, assume no prior knowledge of editing or software involved.  Previous experience is required for advanced courses. A basic working knowledge of the Macintosh Operation system will enhance your experience.  For those with no Mac experience, we recommend taking a basic introductory Macintosh computer class prior to your Manhattan Edit Workshop course.

Do you offer financial aid or scholarships?

As a small art school, one not associated with any universities or colleges, we are unable at this time to offer financial aid or scholarships for our courses.

We do offer a private student loan for courses totaling more than $2,500.  Students may take a combination of courses together or a single course that equals that amount. All students must fill out the appropriate loan application through Manhattan Edit Workshop and be approved by an outside organization.  All plans are designed around students on a case-by-case basis, but must be paid off within 6-12 months.
