In 2020, amid the pandemic, Aputure wanted to find a way to give back. They decided to give away some of their lights and teach the Aputure Family how to graduate from just Aputure Users to Aputure Experts.
Aputure hosted 4 weeks of live streams and sent out over 1000 pcs of Aputure M9s, MCs, and MXs to users who passed the quizzes and the final ALC Test.
Since the last Aputure Lighting Certification (ALC) in 2020, Aputure has released over 20 new products and wants to provide a way for anyone to get up to speed on the latest innovations and maintain their status as Aputure experts.
Aputure Lighting Certification 2021
The 2021 schedule consists of two weeks of live streams. In the first week, they will discuss all of the new products released from April 2020 to June 2021. In the second week, they will review the entire Aputure and Amaran product line.
After each Livestream in Week 1, viewers will be able to take a short 30‐question quiz testing them on their knowledge. Users who pass this test will receive a free M9, courtesy of Aputure.
In Week 2, viewers will review information for the actual Aputure Lighting Certification Test for 2021. Members of the Aputure family who pass this 100‐question test will not only be eligible for a LinkedIn ALC 2021 badge but will also receive a free MC RGBWW mini LED light. The LinkedIn ALC 2021 Badge will also include a link to a webpage that lists the products certificate holders are knowledgeable in.
Aputure users who score the highest on the 100‐question ALC test will also receive the chance to win an MC 12‐Light Production Kit, with the winner chosen at random from the highest‐scoring percentile.
