Digidesign (Daly City, Calif.) announced the launch of the Digidesign Training and Education Program, which will lend support to Pro Tools users through a network of education partners who will offer specialized training curriculum, online certification testing, and promotion of certified experts and operators.
Digidesign's new program will complement Avid's longstanding training efforts through AAEC (Avid Authorized Education Center) and utilize all Avid training facilities. Digidesign will also partner with additional centers to expand Pro Tools training further. One of the first of these new centers certified by Digidesign is Full Sail Real World Education (Orlando, Fla.); Full Sail already has over 20 Pro Tools TDM systems within their curriculum.
Features of the program include free educational resources for users to teach themselves Pro Tools; Pro Tools-certified training curriculum through Digidesign-certified training locations (colleges or technical programs that integrate Pro Tools coursework within a larger audio education program) and authorized pro schools (institutions that offer professional training in multi-day courses); online testing for certification; and support of certified professionals through Premium AudioPages listed on DigiProNet.com.
"We are thrilled to have Digidesign take such an active role in training and education at Avid," stated Mike Pashby, Avid's manager of education services. "We encourage our users to expand their knowledge and become proficient in using our systems. We can depend on Digidesign to prepare high-quality, up-to-date curriculums and work closely with our network of trainers and facilities to offer the best training possible."
