With AAIP, one can become a full-fledged Animation Professional armed with superior Technical Skills and can confidently create a rewarding career for himself in the Animation Industry.

AAIP in Qatar is a yearly based program. At the end of each year, students have to appear for the Final Exams. Students receive Certificate and Performance Statement after successful completion of each year. AAIP is a 3 years long program.

The Course is delivered in a laddered approach wherein a student begins to learn the Basics of Design and proceeds learning 2D animation, 3D Animation and eventually Advanced 3D Animation. Throughout the course, the students contribute to develop their own full-fledged portfolio. Each student works towards the development of a year portfolio. The portfolio contains a presentable collection of his work related to the year. Sample case studies are given to the students to help them create their portfolios. Through project-based works in conjunction with theoretical and practical experience, students explore different ways to put ideas into practice while developing their portfolios. Finally, at the end of the course the students create Portfolio Reel comprising of all the portfolios created during the course which helps them showcase their talent. This portfolio is a requirement for successful completion of the final Arena Animation international Program (AAIP) course.
