Hands-on, instructor-led certified training classes are the most efficient way to learn editing. I was a self-taught Avid and FCP editor for years and felt very comfortable with the machinery. It wasn't until I finally took my certified training to become an instructor that I saw what I was missing! I was shocked at the huge gaps in my knowledge. I'm a faster and better editor for having learned the software in a certified training environment, and I've seen the same results in countless MEW Shop students.
