Take Apart an Alexa Mini with ARRI's Advanced Service Training

As part of their ARRI Academy Program, the German company introduced two new Advanced Service Training Online courses that will teach you how to repair and service an Alexa Mini, Amira, and MVF-1 viewfinder. You can enroll in the course today for €650.

ARRI has been leading the cinema camera manufacturing market for a very long time. However, their popular cameras are complex systems that need proper care and attention. As deterioration or damage of some parts can occur, you might be the person in charge of fixing the problem.

Therefore, ARRI is now introducing two new courses focusing on the service procedures for the Alexa Mini, Amira, and MVF-1. An Advanced Service Training for the Alexa Mini LF is already available.
