Meet your friends from Ripple Training

“Ripple Training’s mission is to provide timely and supremely useful training and creative resources for the next generation of digital content creators.”

Ripple Training was launched in August of 2002 by filmmaker and educator Steve Martin. Since it’s launch, Ripple Training has helped thousands of people around the world become more proficient with industry-recognized creative software from Apple, Adobe, Avid and Blackmagic Design. We took the name Ripple because it communicates both motion and effect.  As a stone is dropped into a still pond, our impact can be measured by the many editors, producers and filmmakers who have used, and continue to use our products to create inspiring stories. We look forward to helping you achieve your creative goals.
