Any help would be great as I have tried looking on the net and have come up with nothing useful so far !

LocaRed will post tomorrow info about our week Red bootcamp hold in Paris early June in English.
We'll be using 4 full Red camera packages (out of our 5) along with several post-production stations including Scratch. Our facility provides a wide range of setups (from studio to outdoors) and we'll take advantage of the city amazing locations (no guerilla filming, all permits).
A filmout to 35mm from the actual bootcamp Red filming will be shown to the trainees at the Melies theatre on the last day. Stereoscopic Red filming will also be covered during the training along with aerial Red filming.
Thanks to our 8 month on the field Red experience on various TV, film, and commercial projects (we got #88 last October) we'll be providing extensive training and practice to a group of 8 persons. We just finished a 7-day training session for French operators and the feedback was great.
Minimum HD or film camera work experience is required. We already have 3 persons who are in line to register for this training so don't wait too long before contacting us if interested. Email is fine: firstname.lastname@example.org. We can help with finding short term affordable lodging in Paris if necessary. Early June is a great time of the year to discover the city and the light is just amazing!

Keslow Camera offers a really nice informal Red training every Wed. Keslow is located in L.A.... or in the Culver City/Marina Del Rey area more specifically. Keslow's session is valuable because not only is it hands on, but they have some really great AKS for the camera that are either unique to the house, or fairly rare in the market. Check it out.

We updated the PDF on our website about the Red bootcamp we'll be holding mid June in Paris at LocaRed. You'll find a detailed outline of the courses.
Try to let us know ASAP if you're interested in this session. We'll soon be sending the final registration forms.

Would be very interested in any training in the London area on the Red camera and also data management.
My company is looking at using Red for future commercial projects I would like to get as much experience with the camera as possible. Thanks

I would wait until build 16 comes out before you pay for RED training...could be wrong but from what it sounds like many things will change, Jannard said think of it as going from os 9 to os X, thats a big F*&^ing change.
Just my 2cents.

I frequently spend 2 hours or so at no charge with clients renting my RED, walking them through menu's, workflow, etc.

Came across this thread by chance...if anyone's looking for training in the London area, drop us a line. We've just completed an intensive Skillset-subsidised 6-day course delivered with our partners Filmspace, VET and FAVA.
And, ever the gluttons for punishment, we're planning more...
