Key Code Education


“We want to empower the storyteller by making the tools transparent to use. This allows the focus to be on the story and not how to create it.”

Johnathon Amayo, Chief Academic Officer

Mission Statement

At Key Code Education, we aim to shape the entertainment professionals of tomorrow by fostering an educational experience rooted in collaboration and innovation. We seek to inspire students to excellence in a project-oriented learning environment designed to unleash the imagination and bring creative ideas to fruition under the mentorship of industry professionals. At the crossroads of art and commerce, we wish to train our students to think like entrepreneurs.

We challenge them to embrace the rapidly changing technological landscape that shapes the future of entertainment. We ask them to think critically, solve problems, and deliver their ideas to the world with integrity using available social and digital platforms. We celebrate freedom of thought while nurturing the confidence required in expression.

A Community for Creators

At the heart of Key Code Education is the desire to build a community that storytellers can use to expand their knowledge, grow their capability, and collaborate with other creative individuals. A division within Key Code Media that leverages its unique position in the industry as leaders of technology and creative tools; Key Code Education offers classes in all aspects of production and post-production.

Key Code Education aims to provide content creators with the skills, systems, and strategy to accomplish any projects and achieve your wildest dreams.

At Key Code Education, we’ve separated production and post-production training into three distinct categories.


Developed by the companies behind the technology and tools, vendor-based training includes education on the core functionality of the software or system. Avid Technology, Inc., Adobe, Apple, and Blackmagic are just a few of the vendors who have a created a comprehensive curriculum. These courses are delivered by a vendor certified instructor with certified courseware and exercises. All courses include hands-on with the system and software as well.


Developed by Key Code Education to meet the ever demanding needs of professionals in the film and television industry. Unlike vendor training which focuses on the tool, Industry Certifications focus on how to use the tool for a particular job. Key Code Education will offer certifications for Post Coordinators, Assistant Editors, Conform Artists, and much more. Key Code Education will also offer courses in aesthetics and industry basics for individuals just starting out.


Key Code Education is spearheading education for engineers in both production and post-production. Key Code Education will offer Avid’s Certified Support Representative (ACSR) program which includes engineering classes for Media Composer (MC400), Pro Tools (PT400), NEXIS (NX422), and more. Key Code Education will also offer Facilis Storage Training for Terrablock (FS400) and many more technology partners soon.

Continuing Education

State of California Subsidized

Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE)

The Bureau protects students and consumers through the oversight of California’s private postsecondary educational institutions by conducting qualitative reviews of educational programs and operating standards, proactively combatting unlicensed activity, impartially resolving student and consumer complaints, and conducting outreach.

Key Code Education is an approved Non-Accredited Institution (Institution Code: 66733992.  More information here).

Employment Training Panel (ETP)

The Employment Training Panel (ETP) provides funding to employers to assist in upgrading the skills of their workers through training that leads to well-paying, long-term jobs. The ETP was created in 1982 by the California State Legislature and is funded by California employers through a special payroll tax. The ETP is a funding agency, not a training agency. Businesses determine their own training needs and how to provide training.

Key Code Education is now accepting applications to assist in applying for funds and other aspects of participation.
