We’re incredibly excited to be partnering with The Foundry to be the exclusive educational organization where artists can gain certification to be trainers for NUKE. This is the only way to become an officially certified NUKE trainer. After successful completion of the course, which includes passing both standard and practical exams, members will be listed on the Foundry’s web site as a Certified NUKE Trainer. These members can also nominate a selected place of work as a Certified NUKE Training Centre.
This curriculum is totally separate from our normal offerings, due to the fact that it is targeted towards those who wish to train other artists in Nuke. The program is not designed to make great shots for your reel, but to provide you with detailed information about the software and how to pass that knowledge on to others. fxphd prof Matt Leonard leads the course, and he has worked very closely with The Foundry to develop a solid and accurate training curriculum. Leonard has trained numerous artists over the years, so he is uniquely qualified to teach the course.
You can view information about the courses on our Nuke for Trainers course listing page.
