BDA’s Transitions Certificate Programs are in-depth courses designed for professionals looking to either reinvigorate or change their careers. Every Transitions course has a clear and concise learning outcome for students. Class sizes are limited to eight students so that the instructor can assist and engage with every student individually. Courses are offered in two formats to accommodate the busy schedules of students: weekdays for one full week or two evenings per week for five weeks.
Transitions classes are designed using a project-based learning approach that combines engaging lectures with hands-on practice. The sessions for the Video Production Transitions Certificate Program will be split into two locations: lectures will take place at BDA’s state-of-the-
Registrations fees for Boulder Digital Arts’ Video Production Transitions Certificate Program are $1,199 for BDA members and $1,249 for non-members. After Feb. 16, prices will increase to $1,209 and $1,259, respectively. Included in this fee is BDA’s concierge service, in which a BDA staff member follows up with a Transitions student after registration to assist with any logistical and/or travel concerns, meal options, and to set up a payment plan if necessary.
“These courses cost a fraction of the prices of most similar software/computer classes or advanced degree programs,” adds Zach Daudert, BDA co-founder. “Really though, these Transitions classes are invaluable. A student in the Video Production class can walk in on Monday knowing nothing about shooting a video and walk out on Friday knowing the essentials of professionally shooting and producing the finished product.”
BDA provides several industry-standard professional video cameras for the Video Production class; however, students are encouraged to bring their own video equipment if possible.
