Why GeniusDV?
GeniusDV has a passion for training. We frequently prodcue tips or tutorials related to Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere,  or Final Cut Pro. Even if you decide not to attend a training course, this information will lead to some invaluable tips and tricks to help you learn the software. Compare our website content to our competition.

Our instructors are industry experts, we do not employ staff instructors.   All of our instructors  currently work within the professional industry. Because of this, they typically go above and beyond of what you might expect.  Read what students are saying about the GeniusDV training center(s).

Training Location
Have you had a great training class, but in a terrible location? You don't need to worry about parking your car, and your hotel is within walking distance.

How many people are in a typical class?
Never less than 1, but never more than 5. Typically for a large class of 6 students, we may have an assistant or an additional instructor to assist with the class.

What if I am the only student that has signed up and GeniusDV cancels my class?
GeniusDV will offer the class even if you are the only student.  On rare ocassions, with your agreement, we may ask if you are willing to re-schedule at no cost to you.

Do the courses include hands-on training?
Every student will have their own computer system for the duration of the class with wide screen flat panel LCD display. Our classes are hands-on and intensive, with lots of time to experiment with the various exercises that have been taught to you.

Support Options
Have you ever taken a great training class, and then felt left out in the cold, with no way to get in touch with your training facility or instructor? GeniusDV provides a toll free number, and / or cell phone that you can call 7 / 24 to touch base with a real human being. In some cases, it may be your actual instructor. We don't have any restricted hours, we will always return your call. This is unheard of in the training industry. Specific software support can cost hundreds of dollars a year, and GeniusDV provides this as an ongoing benefit. We trust that you won't abuse it.

Quality Promise
GeniusDV has several policies that will make you more comfortable when deciding to shell out your hard earned dollars. If you are taking 2-5 day course, and you are completely unhappy with the first day of training (and you notify us via telephone, e-mail, or voicemail), we will refund your money 'No questions asked' after the first day. You can't beat this promise!

Re-scheduling Policy
What if you have to re-schedule? Are there strict rules, like most other centers?  No, although we hate surprises, we will re-schedule you in our next available class. No cost to you, with no hidden charges.

What if I change my mind and want my money back? (refund policy)
Most other training centers have a strict policy of no refunds up to a certain date. We will process a full refund up to one week before your scheduled class starts. We won't hesitate to process your refund.  If you cancel prior to one week (7 days) before the class starts, we will offer you full credit towards any future class.

Can I audit a class for free?
As a benefit, we allow students to retake the same class indefinitely without charge. We just need to make sure we have a computer and room in the next class for you. Just remember, occasionally our vendors expand the number of days required for a class. If you choose to audit a class that has been expanded upon, we will only charge you for the additional days of the class.

Can I have someone sit in my class and audit while I attend?
We do not allow other individuals to sit in a class without payment. We do offer group discounts. The reason for this is simple: It interferes with an instructor's ability to teach you what is necessary in learning the software. It is also unfair to the other paying customers in your class.
