Nate, a former copywriter and editor, dreamed of switching careers for years. He knew he needed to upskill his resume to land a video editing and production job he sought after.

After a quick Google search to find job training programs in the Northern Colorado area, Nate found the Digital Workshop Center and felt it was just what he was looking for.

He first completed both the Level I and II Photoshop Classes at the Digital Workshop Center. These courses are designed to teach students the ins and outs of editing photos and creating stunning graphics in the Adobe Photoshop program. Nate was able to master Photoshop with our hands-on, step-by-step, live instruction classes. Imagery is the basis for great videography; Nate’s newfound understanding of Photoshop gave him a great foundation as he began his career change.

Nate went on to finish his Fundamentals of Video Design Certification where he received a solid understanding of the most cutting-edge video design software available today. He walked away with strong skills, giving him the ability to create and edit video projects. He took classes in Design Basics, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, and Social Media for Business. These in-depth courses gave him the skills and confidence needed to make the switch. Shortly after completing the program, when asked about his experience at the DWC, Nate mentioned, “Great classes, great teachers. I feel very prepared to put my new skills to use in a video design career.”

After completing his certifications at the Digital Workshop Center, he landed an amazing internship at Iconic Digital Studios, a video production and marketing agency located in Colorado. He now has the opportunity to further his resume by working on high-quality video and marketing projects across a wide variety of industries.
