Apple Certification page down?
on Jul 12, 2011 at 12:43:39 pm

I'm an Apple-certified trainer in FCP7, and was trying to see if there was any updated information about FCPX certification today. All of the Apple pages regarding certification seem to be down. Safari could not find them.

Does anyone know how long it has been like this? Do you think they are being updated as I write this? Previously, there were "coming soon" messages about recertification and the new Peach Press books.

Certification requirements for FCPX have not be decided. They will probably be announced sometime near the release of the FCPX training book in September.

All the best,

They need time to get someone to come in and lower the bar down... way down. A certified trainer in FCPX... Who'd a thought we'd be having this discussion.

Does anyone know what becomes of the certifications of FCP7, and other FCS3 certifications. My FCP6 certification expired shortly after the release of FCP7.

Certifications for FCP7 and FCS are closed. AATCs can still give certification exams, but there are no more certifications for these applications.

All the best,

Wow, I only just saw this. I was scheduled to take the Tier 1 exam today, and the Tier 2, Color, and Sound exams in the next few weeks, as part of a Master Class I just completed LAST WEEK.

Would have been nice if my AATC had actually MENTIONED this to me before scheduling me for it.


Is there any actual point in this now?

Even if I pass these exams, there is no Certification I can claim to have? Should I stop wasting my time and just add "Final Cut Studio Master Pro Certification Master Class" somewhere? I realize just a cert has little weight (been an Avid Editor for over a decade), but I was looking forward to having that feather in my cap none the less.

Does anyone know why the actual page is down? I check earlier, and it had "coming soon" images of the new books.

Looks like it is down:

They have probably pulled all of them down to update the page. Weird, considering they usually post a "back soon" post-it note.
