The University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Offers Certification Training in Leading Audio Production Software, Pro Tools.

Individuals wishing to enhance their knowledge of and experience with audio production for music, film and video postproduction and game audio can take advantage of UMBC's new Pro Tools certification training. The training is accredited by Avid, the maker of Pro Tools.

Of all the audio programs out there today, Pro Tools is the one you will find in the majority of professional music and film facilities, as well as in countless home studios. But people are always looking to expand their skills - whether it's taking their first steps or looking for new, faster ways to tackle the professional challenges they face every day. For the last ten years, Avid has offered its own industry-recognized certification.

There are five levels of certification within Avid's core audio curriculum. Pro Tools 101 and 110 will be offered during UMBC's winter session.
