SHREVEPORT, La. – BRF’s Digital Media Institute (DMI) offers online classes to students in all 50 states.
Students across the United States can now enroll in the one-year Animation, Visual Effects, and Interactive (AVEI) Certificate Program. In the AVEI program, students learn how to create 3D and 2D graphics, virtual and augmented reality content, motion capture, digital cinema and more.
The AVEI program prepares students for careers in a variety of industries, including feature film and streaming visual effects, advertising and marketing, television news production, interactive game content, 3D product development, cybersecurity visualization, augmented and virtual reality, forest simulation, and 3 D modeling, architectural visualization and more.
Students can start registration for the upcoming DMI semester, which begins on January 18th.
This latest expansion of DMI programming, which has been approved by the Louisiana Board of Governors and the National Board of Reciprocity Agreements for State Authorization, follows DMI’s expansion across Louisiana in the fall of 2021.
In October 2021, DMI announced that it will also offer its AVEI program through distance learning offerings at the University of New Orleans, Northwestern State University, and Nunes Community College.
The expansion to the three schools is being funded in part by the Louisiana Entertainment Development Fund for Economic Development to provide workforce development programs for the state’s digital media.
“We find students wherever they are,” said John Mirales, CEO of Dubai Media Incorporated. Employers across the country are looking for individuals with skills in digital media. We are now offering training in technology used by major studios to students no matter where they live.”
