Please find below a list of common queries pertaining to our centre workshops

Queries on the workshops 

Are your classes held in person or online?
Most of our courses are held in person (subject to prevailing health measures), as it is more conducive to the learning experience.
Will attendance be taken, and do I need to attend all the sessions?
We highly encourage participants to attend all sessions due to the intensive nature of the classes. We take attendance for purposes of accountability for participants paying by their company or SkillsFuture credit.
Will there be make-up sessions if I miss a class due to work or illness? Will I be granted a refund?
We do not offer makeup sessions or refunds for missed classes, but we can offer a non-transferable credit on a case-by-case basis, which can be used for another course of your choice at Objectifs. There will be no refunds for courses of lower value, and you will be responsible for the difference for higher value courses. You will need to sign up for a course within 6 months from the date of cancellation. However, placement in the course is not guaranteed.
What happens if I have contracted COVID-19 and need to withdraw from the class?
Please write to us at info@objectifs.com.sg if you have contracted COVID-19, and we will follow up with you accordingly. We would offer you an option to transfer to the next instalment of the class, or a refund.
What do I have to bring for the first lesson?
You will receive an email before the first lesson to remind you about class and to inform you about what to bring.
What is the demographic of your classes?
The participants are usually of varying ages, ranging from adults to the occasional student.
What will be covered during the courses?
The individual course outlines are available on the respective course pages, and you may visit the pages of the workshops you are keen on to find out more.(https://www.objectifs.com.sg/category/workshops/workshops-objectifs/)
Will I receive certification after the workshop is completed?
We can issue you a certificate of participation after the course ends upon request. However, please note that as Objectifs is an arts center, and not an academic institution, this is not equivalent to a degree or diploma.

 

Queries on equipment required for the workshops

Do I need equipment to enrol in the Digital Filmmaking course?
No. We have camera, audio equipment, as well as Macs with Adobe Premiere Pro installed for the editing sessions available for participants’ to loan out in groups during the period of the course. The camera and audio equipment are available for loan with a refundable deposit of $100 per participant, which will be returned to you when the equipment is returned to us in good condition and within the stated time period.

You will need a DSLR, mirrorless or compact camera with manual setting for the workshop. If you have not purchased your camera before the workshop begins, we recommend that you attend the first session, and speak to the instructor. Objectifs has limited number of cameras for loan (with a refundable deposit with the return of equipment in good condition) for the first session.
Do I need to bring a laptop for the Adobe Premiere Pro CC or Adobe After Effects CC workshops?
We have Macs with Adobe Premiere Pro installed for the editing sessions available for participants to use during the period of the course. However, you may feel free to bring your own laptops with the software or the trial of the software installed if you wish.
Do you have Windows computers available for workshop participants?
Unfortuantely, we only have Macs available at our centre.
