About Us

Visual media has always been a powerful means of communicating ideas, but in the last decade it has become increasingly easier to utilize those tools in mass media. We believe that this is good - that anything that helps people to communicate easily and effectively should be encouraged. But with the digital photography/videography revolution and the rapid increases in computing power it has also become increasingly difficult to keep up with the changes, to work efficiently, and to set oneself apart from the crowd. That's where Cherry Blossom Training can help.


Here, we create a training atmosphere that is different from any other. With a strong background in education, learning theory, and curricular development, we believe that training should occur not just in the classroom, but also in the workplace. That is why our practices are geared toward continuing professional development that works hand in hand with productivity and efficiency.


By focusing on education and adapting to the needs of the individual, we can quickly get you up to speed, or up and running, in today's competitive business environment. Instead of filling classrooms, we purposefully keep our class sizes small to let the instructor focus on student needs. And instead of pushing through materials, we encourage adapting curricula to meet the needs of the individual.

We look forward to working with you.

Owner and Lead Trainer Nicholas Petersen spent a decade as a teacher in the public and private schools, and he brings his love of learning into software training. As a teacher, he used video production software to "flip the classroom," providing direct instruction for students at home through streaming video, and using instructional time to review and extend those concepts. As a software trainer, Nic uses the knowledge and skills that he refined in the classroom and uses them to take a unique individualized and collaborative approach to training, a style that is both engaging and enjoyable.


In addition to his work as a software trainer and teacher, Nic also serves as a choir director for his church, as a choral clinician and adjudicator around the DC Metro area, and as a private voice teacher. He also sings with the Cathedral Choral Society in Washington, DC. Nic received his Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Grove City College in Grove City, PA.
