Pro Tools Course

Pro Tools course, Saint Louis is an AVID-certified institution of higher arts education, therefore authorized to award the title of “Pro Tools User” to students attending the relevant courses.

For several years now, in both music production and audio-video post production, Pro Tools has been confirmed as the most widely used and popular system in the world.

Acquiring the “Pro Tools User” certification helps open the door to an industry that requires the ability to record, edit, mix and finalize a session skillfully and, most importantly, quickly.

To obtain certification, it is necessary to take the two courses Pro Tools 101 (basic course) and Pro Tools 110 (advanced course) and pass the two exams provided at the end of each course.

There are two options, therefore, for obtaining certification at Saint Louis:
Pro Tools, standard course – 16-hour PT 101 + 24-hour PT 110

Pro Tools, smart review – PT 101 and PT 110 for a total of 12 hours in total, reserved exclusively for graduate and undergraduate students in Saint Louis Sound Technician courses (as many topics covered in Pro Tools 101 and Pro Tools 110 courses are already covered as part of the curricular subjects of the three-year academic program).

Courses are taught by Avid-certified faculty members from the Saint Louis Department of Phonics and Electronic Music, Marzia Bulli and Fabrizio Angelini; exams are held directly onsite.
