SIX WEEKS THAT COULD CHANGE YOUR CAREER

What Is It?

Our CGI Certification course is a 6-week online course taught from PRO EDU tutorials, exclusive content, live office hours, access to a small private community, weekly testing, weekly assignments and a certification course facilitated by. The course is for those who want to learn CGI and what it can do for their business.

 

How Does It Work?

You and your classmates are granted access to the course at the same time and are given weekly assigned tutorials to complete, assignmnets to submit, live office hours, weekly proficiency tests, and an area to submit your questions and get video feedback from our instructor team and T.A team.

 

Who Is This For?

Specifically catered for creatives with a photography background looking for industry leading workflows for Cinema 4D, Octane Render Engine, and now Red Shift. This course is designed for those starting their journey into understanding the CGI pipeline.

 

When Does It Start?

Because this course is synchronous, it starts at a specific time August 23rd so that all students can begin from the same starting point. The "synchronous" part of this course is six weeks but all students will have up to 12 months to finish the course and take the certification course test.

IS CINEMA 4D HARD TO LEARN?

This is a common question that every creative asks. It's the #1 most asked question, so we've dedicated an entire BLOG POST and video interview here that explores that question with Master Trainer Dustin Valkema and CGI for photographers course student Ashley Murrel.

 

MEET YOUR MASTER TRAINER DUSTIN VALKEMA

"I’m a seasoned creative artist, a student who’s spent a whole lot of time learning to learn from failure. Pushing my creative boundaries is a thriving passion of mine and I enjoy helping others do the same. Learning a new skill set can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. I see too many artists quit before starting on a new path, but pushing through that winding path will lead to fruitful creativity. I’m looking forward to using my industry experience as a Composite and CGI artist to help you dive into your new journey. It’s important to never forget that we’re all “forever students” and continuously adapting our toolbox and workflows. Let’s take the dive together and make cool shit!"

UNLIMITED FAQ - PRO PLAN

WHAT IS INCLUDED?

The PRO PLAN gives unlimited streaming and downloading access to all of our photography, retouching, business, marketing, and pricing tutorials. As long as you are a member, you have access to all existing and newly released content.

WHAT IF I AM BRAND NEW TO PHOTOGRAPHY?

We are all at different stages in photography, and no two individuals are the same. Our tutorials aren't just about HOW to do something; they explore the artists and WHY they make their choices. This means any level and all levels of photographer are welcome in our community.

WHAT IS "PRO" ALL ABOUT?

We feature artists and teachers that live the craft day in and day out. We seek out instructors that are actual practitioners, not influencers or Internet "gurus." We consider "professionals" to be artists with a growth mindset that are on an endless journey to seek new ways to create, innovative ways to problem solve, and efficient ways to improve their workflow. We feature artists and teachers that live the craft and are practitioners, not influencers.

WHERE DO I LEARN FROM?

PRO PLAN members have full access to tutorials at https://learn.proedu.com/browse  or through the iOS Mobile App or the Android Mobile App.

Are CGI Tutorials Part Of This?

Yes. All CGI tutorial content is included in your unlimited plan. PRO PLAN members also receive a discount on 6-week certification courses and have priority registration before the general public.

HOW CAN I PAY?

We accept every major credit card at checkout, including additional options for PayPal, ApplePay, Amazon, and financing options from Affirm and Sezzle. USA and Canada members can select Sezzle at checkout to qualify for financing.

DO YOU OFFER TRIALS

CAN I PREVIEW A TUTORIAL BEFORE I BUY?

You can browse our tutorial store herehttps://proedu.com/pages/tutorials to get an idea of the types of content, tutorials, trailers, bios, and descriptions of each tutorial. You may also find additional bonus content likeHow I Made This, and other exclusive tutorials or documentaries only available on the platform.

WHAT LEVEL DO I NEED TO BE AT FOR THESE TUTORIALS?

The short answer is any level. Beginners or experts can all benefit from observing other creatives' work allowing your brain to create connections. Our brains have a fantastic ability to create neural pathways between various disciplines, making something more comfortable for others due to a similar background in a similar medium. You never know how hard something is going to be until you try. And NOTHING is too hard for anyone to learn.

HOW DO I KNOW THIS WILL WORK FOR MY GENRE?

The short answer is any level. We have various tutorials and genres on the platform from some of the world's most outstanding artists. By watching and learning from multiple artists on the site, you can hone your craft and develop your wide range of skills as a creative problem solver.

HOW SOON COULD THIS PAY OFF?

Many of our students see a benefit or a payoff in their first shoot. This could be in the form of an increase in a day rate, booking more days, a higher sales price for their prints, or a higher quality of work. Success comes in many forms and is measured differently. You have to ask yourself, how much does it cost you NOT to have access to information that will make your life easier and more profitable? When you set out to learn something new every day and keep an open mind about learning from others, your pathway to success becomes a highway to happiness.

HOW SOON CAN I START LEARNING?

Instantly. After checkout, you can sign in tohttps://learn.proedu.com/login with the email address you used to check out with the PRO PLAN.

We also encourage our users to schedule a time for deep learning without any distractions and take notes to ensure that they are genuinely absorbing the content.

WHY IS THIS WORTH IT, YOUTUBE IS FREE?

You can learn anything on YouTube; we love it as well! The biggest question you need to ask is whether you want to do all of the searching it takes to find ENOUGH quality content you need. How valuable is your time, and how much do you want to waste? On top of this, how much do you like the platform? Can you download YouTube content and watch it offline? Does it come with downloads? Do you want to sit through all of the noise and distractions of YouTube? Do you have access to ask questions? YouTube is designed to sell ads, whereas PRO EDU is designed to unlock the secrets of success. We aren't paid by camera companies trying to sell you cameras and new shiny things. We make education to help others grow and advance in their career genuinely. PRO EDU has a customer service team working seven days a week and an online community of artists to help give feedback and answer questions about workflows and growth hacks.
