By ANIMATION XPRES... | 18 April, 2011 - 10:10

Leading visual effects software company The Foundry has announced a NUKE trainer certification program in conjunction with industry renowned online trainers fxphd.

The increasing demand for NUKE training worldwide prompted The Foundry to look for a partner to help them create and deliver a high quality training program that was accessible remotely regardless of location. Fxphd offers the perfect solution.

The program is the only way to become an officially certified nuke trainer.

The certification process involves over 30 hours of in-depth NUKE training from fxphd‘s world renowned team with assessment via a combination of online technical questions and practical project-driven work.

Those who complete the program successfully can call themselves ‘NUKE Trainer: Certified by The Foundry & fxphd‘ and will be listed on The Foundry‘s website. They can also nominate a selected place of work as a ‘Certified NUKE Training Centre‘.

They will also have the opportunity to exchange knowledge with other trainers in the program on special forums and have access to exclusive post-certification asset packs for courseware design from fxphd.

The yearly recertification will also enable trainers to keep up to date with new NUKE releases and features.

Bill Collis, CEO of The Foundry comments,"With the growing number of NUKE seats, there is increasing demand for quality trainers to teach artists all over the world. We believe the standard of training offered by fxphd is second to none and their policy of using teachers from production provides a level of realism that is hard to match. We are confident that together we can grow a global network of Certified NUKE Trainers who can in turn teach many more artists NUKE."

John Montgomery, co-founder of fxphd & fxguide adds,"We‘re really excited that The Foundry have chosen fxphd to create and implement a curriculum to certify NUKE trainers. Over the years, we‘ve successfully trained thousands of NUKE artists around the globe and developed the best ways of educating via the internet. It‘s the perfect next step for us to train the trainers who teach NUKE artists on location."

The program will begin on 1st May. For more information please visit fxphd site. Fxphd also offer courses in NUKE, MARI and STORM.
