Custom Training for Groups

AbelCine Training can develop programs tailored to your specific request. This option is ideal for institutions and companies that are looking to train their staff on the production technology that is relevant to their needs.

Our customized programs can include any aspects of camera, optics, audio, lighting, workflows and post solutions. Classes can be structured as classroom style or hands-on equipment, and can be either held at AbelCine Training Centers or at your company’s location.

Our custom training is designed to meet your needs. You set the time, place, number of people, and topic of the training, and we’ll build the right class for you. Below is a form to request a specific training time and topic. It will also give you an idea of our pricing. If we are outside of your budget just let us know, and we will try to accommodate.

Our schedule is always subject to the availability of trainers and equipment, and pricing does not include any travel costs.

Price: From: $225.00

Our custom training classes are designed to give you exactly the information you need on the topics of your choice. These custom training classes are designed for small groups of up to 3 people for a real, focused training experience. You can provide the equipment needed or we can provide it (based on availability). Our goal is to get you up to speed on the latest tools and technology.
