Boulder Digital Arts Offers Certificate Program for Digital Professionals

1367

Boulder, CO—Boulder Digital Arts is launching a series of intensive one-week certificate programs for digital professionals, students and other professionals looking to learn tools and techniques in Web design, social media marketing, video production and other fields. The certificate program will debut June 7.

Talented working professionals, who will emphasize practical knowledge and skills over academics, will teach the program. Using a project-based approach that combines lectures with hands-on practice, every Transitions program has a concise learning outcome. Most programs are limited to eight students, so the instructor can engage and help each student.

Offered in Boulder Digital Arts’ classroom in its new 3,000-square-foot site, the classes deepen and expand the curriculum Boulder Digital Arts already offers. Transitions students will have access to cutting-edge software and tools, and receive personal mentoring from digital professionals.

The first Transitions class, a one-week Digital Photography certificate program, runs June 7-11. Other Transitions programs include: Web Design, June 14-18; Video Production, June 21-25; Web Marketing and Social Media, June 28-July 2; and Video Post-Production, July 19-23.

“People who spend a week in the Transitions classroom with our top-notch mentors will leave Boulder Digital Arts with a new set of skills and a grasp of the most important technological trends of the day,” cofounder Bruce Borowsky said. “We believe they’ll feel more vital and energized about how they incorporate technology into their careers, and people will come to Boulder from all over the country once they find out how exciting these programs are.” Along with Zach Daudert, Borowsky launched the organization in 2004 to offer low-cost, high-impact training in digital tools and technology.

The classes are geared toward out-of-town visitors as well as local professionals. Boulder Digital Arts has negotiated with local vendors to offer discounted accommodations and other services to Transitions participants.
