The Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences (Tempe, Ariz.) now offers the JBL VerTec Series manufacturer certification. Recently, 64 students and two staff members received training and certificates in the operation and setup of the system.
JBL product manager for tour sound products, Raul Gonzalez, taught the class in the Conservatory’s 6,000-square-foot live sound classroom. “Keeping the students trained on the latest gear is one of our prime directives here at the Conservatory,” says administrator Kirt Hamm. “Our grads are eminently employable because of the strength of our curriculum and certification programs.”
The school now offers certificates in the operation of Pro Tools (210M Operator Certificate), Antares Auto-Tune, SIA Smaart software, TC Electronic System 6000 and M3000, Apple Logic Pro 7 and more.
