Overview of the Cinema 4D Online Training Course
Join one of our live Cinema 4D classroom training sessions as a remote student over the internet. Our online training courses are ideal for those who find it difficult to travel to our training facilities. You will attend a classroom training which takes place at one of our training centres with real instructors and students without leaving your home or office. You will have the opportunity to interact with your instructors, ask questions, follow demonstrations, hear and see your fellow students just like you would if you were physically in the classroom. It’s exactly like being in a classroom, without the cost of travel and accommodation. Plus the cost of the online training is lower than the traditional classroom training courses. You can attend the following Maxon Cinema 4D courses as an online student: Cinema 4D Beginner, Cinema 4D Intermediate, Cinema 4D Advanced, Cinema 4D Fast Track Silver and Cinema 4D Fast Track Gold.

HOW IT WORKS
Using a dedicated technology, we link you to your scheduled Cinema 4D training course as it takes place live at our training facilities. Traditionally, a training day starts at 10am and runs until 4:30pm, which is when you need to be in front of your computer. You will be following your instructor’s monitor as the demonstrations take place, you will then practice what you’ve learned on your own computer. Along the way, you will be able to interact with your instructor, ask questions as well as take part in discussions during the training. If you get stuck, your instructor can take control of your mouse and show you the right way of completing a specific task.

The Online Maxon Cinema 4D courses are live and interactive.

PREREQUESITES
Almost all modern computers nowadays will have sufficient technology for the live training courses. However, to ensure you get the most out of your online training experience, there are a few things to keep in mind. In order to attend one of the Cinema 4D courses as an online student, you need to have a decent broadband connection (a connection that’s good enough for a traditional HD video call will suffice). You will also need a pair of headphones or speakers as well as a microphone. 

Although not compulsory, you are advised to have a dual-monitor setup. Ideally, you would be following your instructor from one monitor and use the other monitor to practice the tools you are taught. As an alternative, you can use a single monitor and split it into two sections. 

You will need to have either the full version of Maxon Cinema 4D or a free trial installed on your computer for the duration of the training. 

DOCKLANDS MEDIA PROMISE
As an online student, you have the same level of benefits as our traditional students. We are committed to providing you with the best possible Maxon Cinema 4D training experience, be it online or in person. That’s why we have a number of options to make the whole training process more manageable and put your mind at ease. Simply put, we want ensure that you actually learn Cinema 4D inside out. All you need to do is to focus on the learning part, rather than worrying about the small details. We take care of those. Here’s how:

Post-Course Support with Free Training Videos
After attending a classroom, private or online Cinema 4D course with Docklands Media, you will have free access to our extensive online training video library for seven days. At the end of this period, you can continue to watch the training videos at your own pace by becoming a member for a small monthly fee. All of our online training videos are produced by our instructors in partnership with digidemy.com

Money-Back Guarantee
If you are not truly satisfied with your Online Maxon Cinema 4D training course, neither are we. Let us know on the first day of the course and we will go the extra mile to make things right. If you are still not happy, we will refund 100% of your money.

Funding your Cinema 4D Course
We understand that it may not always be very easy to pay for your Maxon Cinema 4D training upfront. That’s why we offer a payment plan, which allows you to spread the payment of your training over 6 months with no interest or 12 months with only 10% interest.

24-Month Free Class Retake
Once you complete your Cinema 4D course, you can come back and attend the same training session(s) that you’ve completed to within 24 months. This is especially useful when a new version of Cinema 4D is released, and you would like to retrain on the most up-to-date version of the software. Otherwise, you can just come and resit the same course to refresh your skills. 

Lifetime Support
After your Cinema 4D training, you will have access to our email and telephone support for a lifetime. You can contact us for any technical questions related to what you’ve learned on your Cinema 4D course. We aim to get back to you with an answer within one business day.

Tailored Training
If you are working on a specific project, or would like to learn a certain aspect of Cinema 4D, we can arrange a Tailored Training course for you. Our highly skilled advisors sit together with our Maxon Certified Cinema 4D instructors to create a custom course outline for you, based on your needs. We then can prepare the course, which can be run at our training studios in London or online, as well as your own premises both in the U.K. and abroad. We’ve trained individuals and companies from more than 25 countries worldwide.

About the application
Maxon Cinema 4D is one of the most valuable tools for any designer, who works in TV, film, web and print industries. This powerful tool is used to create high-end 3D models, animations and renders. Cinema 4D’s ability to create procedural and polygonal models, eye catching animations, realistic textures and integration with other applications make this tool an invaluable asset for a successful 3D designer.
