Avid Learning Partner
The Broadcasting Television Advance Diploma program has taken large steps to ensure its strength in the Broadcast Post Production field. Mohawk College is an AVID Learning Partner. For those unfamiliar AVID, AVID is the leading editing software worldwide. It is used heavily in creating over 50% of Hollywood movies and is used extensively through Los Angeles and Toronto.
Mohawk College now joins a very small list of post-secondary institutions that offer 'AVID Certified User Training' to their students to help them gain a step up from other students when it comes to industry hiring. Mohawk College is the only post-secondary institution in Canada to offer the 2nd Level of Avid Certification. Employees will know that Mohawk students will be ready to work on their AVID systems, not only because of their College diploma, but because they have also passed AVID’s strict guidelines and passed AVID exams.
