How the system works?

First you need to apply for the course you like stating if you want to take the course individually or with a team (Please refer to the “Team” question for more info about it), if everything goes well with your application we’ll then send you a confirmation e-mail stating that you have been accepted in the program.

After that we will send you all the requirements necessary to take the course.

Once you confirm that everything is fine we will start by sending you the first class of the course with a secure link so that you can download it.

You need to watch the entire class until everything is clear, if after watching the class you have a question related to it you can then contact us via e-mail, chat, SMS, video-conference* or by phone*.

Once everything is absolutely clear you should start working on a project related to that specific class. If during completion of your assignment you find that something is not working the way you want you can contact us by the same ways stated before.

If your homework meets the standards of production we will send the next class to you and the cycle repeats until the end of the training program. If for some reason your project doesn’t meet our standards we will reply to you and then you will have to fix it or create something different (We have to make sure you are learning the right way).

 

How many hours per week do I need to complete a course?

It all depends on the course you want to take, keep in mind that our courses require you to take classes and create projects every week. Here are some examples:

 Application or technique courses:
E.g. : Houdini Fundamentals or Math 4 CG artist
This type of course requires at least 3 hours per week to complete in 12 weeks.

Production courses:
E.g. : 3D & VFX Fundamentals or Video games Production
This type of course requires at least 10 hours per week to complete in 12 weeks.

 

Are the classes in real time?

Both, main classes are recorded on video so that you can watch them at any time of the day and review if necessary, this give you the ability to completely understand the subject and review everything once and again if necessary. In some courses live classes are mandatory e.g. Video games production or VFX Production.

If for some reason something is not right you can call for a personal live class. In this case we will generate a ticket to program an appointment suiting your schedule.

 

Video classes are streamed or downloadable?

All the recorded classes are HD downloadable files in the format of your choice (HD PC, MAC, I pad, Playbook, you name it), so you don’t have to see the annoying buffering message when learning. In addition to that you can download your classes from anywhere and keep them forever for further reference.

Note: You can change your elected format once a month for free or pay a process fee of $ 25 USD for an extra change during that period.

 

Why do I need to deliver homework in order to continue to the next class?

This is because we need to make sure that you are going in the right direction and everything is working the way it should so that in later chapters nothing is missing.

Another point is that you can use your projects for the creation of your demo reel or portfolio later on.

 

Can I take a break in between classes?

If you are taking an individual course the answer is “YES” you can do it. On the other hand, if you are taking a course with a team you can still do it but, you will no longer be part of that team and you should complete your training in individual mode.

 

When can I start my course?

As an individual you can start your training right away after satisfactory completion of your application.

If you rather start with a team, you will then start your training the first Monday of the upcoming month.

 

Team VS Individual courses

Team courses are exciting because they allow you to work and compete with your colleagues. This mode is available especially for production based programs like VFX & 3D Fundamentals or Video games Production. Working in a team allows you to create more complex projects but you will need to dedicate more time in order to complete the course.

 

Can I make monthly payments instead of paying for the entire program?

Yes you can if you are applying for any of the courses available at CardanFX in individual mode. If you want to take a team based course you will then need to pay for the entire program at once or in blocks of 3 months for longer programs.

 

What are the payment methods?

We accept PayPal and Western Union payments only.
100% Satisfaction guarantee

 

What is your satisfaction guarantee policy?

If after 14 days of training you feel that this is not the right program for you, we will refund all of your tuition payments no questions asked.

 

Are the payments automatically charged to my account every month?

NO. Every payment period we’ll be sending you an invoice that you will manually have to pay to ensure that you are 100% satisfied with our services.
