Nikon has announced they'll be opening a training school in central London from April 2013.

Nikon has announced plans to open a Nikon School in London, which will be based in the new Nikon Centre of Excellence located just two minutes from Oxford Circus. The school will provide courses and seminars for all abilities, including camera specific courses, such as those for Nikon D5100, D5200, D600, D7000, D700, D800, D3x and D4 users.

John Walshe, General Manager at Nikon UK, says: “Nikon is committed to innovating and developing the very best in photographic technology. With the new Nikon School in London our aim is to provide training courses that inspire photographers to learn, explore and maximise their creative potential.”

He adds, “By creating a Nikon training facility in the heart of central London, we’re able to offer everyone increased access to the very latest Nikon equipment in a fantastic photographic environment.”

A new training course programme will be launched to coincide with the opening of the Nikon School and will include a range of courses from “Introduction to Photography”, to more advanced product specific courses. View the current available courses and seminars available.

The Nikon School will also offer courses on Saturdays. 

The Nikon Centre of Excellence will also be a meeting venue and point of contact for professional photographers who are members of the Nikon Professional Services (NPS) group, for technical support and advice.

Customers interested in making a visit should visit the dedicated training web site to book courses, which run from April 2013. Visit to reserve a place.
