- Apple classes aren’t just for those already versed in the programs- many who go are total amateurs, some without even the professional equipment needed- so no entry barrier to come
- Courses begin very simply, discussing how a camera works, etc.
- Something to take away both for beginners and professionals- though classes are more geared towards new-comers to the programs
- Experts with the programs may find little they don’t already know… though with no price tag, there aren’t many downsides to going…
- Though prerequisites are small, customers do need to have some knowledge of iMovie or iPhoto beforehand.
- Attendance can fluctuate, meaning that getting to know, or sharing what you’ve learned with, new colleagues can be difficult.
- Apple store workshops limited to six people per month, and there is a waiting list- so best to apply a while before you want to attend…
From customer reviews and accounts from those who’ve been, it seems that there aren’t too many downsides to going along to an Apple Pro Lab, besides the waiting list- free, professional, well-planned out, and overseen by some of the best professionals the software has to offer, these courses are not to be missed for any professionals looking to.
