The History of ProMedia Training, The First Pro Tools Training Center

Since 2002, ProMedia Training has been an Officially Licensed Avid Learning Partner offering Pro Tools Training and Certification for both Hands-On & cutting-edge Live-Online Instructor-Led Training. In the early days, ProMedia was known as "The Pro Tools Training Center" teaching Pro Tools courses long before any true certification program existed. It was during that time that the manufacturer agreed it was time to standardize systems of training for Pro Tools Users of all levels, and we were proud to be the first U.S Training Center to roll out DIgidesign's (now Avid) Certification program.

For two decades, we have welcomed thousands of people from around the world, as well as provide corporate training to the most advanced audio engineers seeking innovative and efficient workflow. Click HERE for sample references. Our Hands-On courses have been graced with many of the top musicians, producers, artists, and audio engineers in the world; some artists with over 100 Million Albums sold!!  We provide the path for you to learn Pro Tools thoroughly, so free class audits are welcomed for those to re-fresh their skills for one year after taking class.  

Participation is limited to 6 students per workshop in both hands-on and Live-Online classes.  Each student will receive all class materials, books, sessions, practice lessons and sample libraries from the instructor. Our instructors have decades of real world experience and are all Expert Level Certified.
