Avid for Educators

As an educator, you tell your students to pursue their passions. You strive to help them succeed. But while many students may be interested in a career in media, it may seem too difficult and expensive for them to get there.

Avid’s education offerings solve these dilemmas with solutions scaled to your facility’s needs. Whether you’re a college educator or K-12 teacher, you can provide your students with hands-on training that will prepare them for top college media programs and successful careers in the media industry.
