Other information

  • All Adobe Creative Cloud training courses at Sydney Community College require a basic computer competency as pre-requisite. We expect that you can confidently and quickly navigate the computer directory and locate files with ease. Adobe applications are professional-level software, and an inability to use a computer confidently will restrict you from progressing in the class. If you are unsure about your computer competency, please contact Customer Service so that we can arrange a call to discuss.
  • This course runs in our computer lab, fitted with 27-inch Apple iMac systems with the latest Adobe apps installed. Adobe After Effects functions the same on both Windows and Macintosh computers except for minor differences with keyboard usage.
