ASTRO has partnered with AVID Technology Inc. to become a vendor for Pro Tools User Certification. Pro Tools is the industry standard audio recording software, and is used by professional audio engineers around the world to create the highest quality sound for music and post production.

PRO TOOLS IN SCHOOLS

Our Pro Tools Certification programs are offered during school hours through the Music CTE programs at participating schools and districts. These classes involve 60 hours of instruction time and provides students with all the modern music hardware they will need to complete the course. Students learn the software based off the lessons provided by AVIDĀ® in the Pro Tools 101 and Pro Tools 110 text books, with a number of other student driven projects to help students get familiar with practical use of the software.

The certification process is split into two year-long programs, Pro Tools 101, and Pro Tools 110. Each class culminates with an exam provided by AVIDĀ®, and upon passing both exams students will be granted a Pro Tools User Certification.

ADVANCED COURSEWORK NETWORK

ASTRO also offers Pro Tools User Certifications in an after school setting through the Advanced Coursework Network. This program is free for high school students throughout Rhode Island, and not only culminates in the Certification, but is also recognized as a high school credit. This program is also split into year long classes for both the Pro Tools 101 and 110 text books. The books and all materials and hardware necessary for completing these courses are provided by ASTRO.
