CENTRAL GOVT. CERTIFIED AUDIO ENGINEERING DIPLOMA

ELIGIBILITY

Any higher secondary (10+2) graduate, passionate about audio and aspiring to become an audio professional along with looking to explore & develop his/her creative technical skills.

PROGRAM

This 12 month program which includes a 2 month internship has been developed by professionals from the industry. To give you an idea, the course is structured around 8 modules. You begin with learning the basics of sound, electronics, rigging & safety. You then move on to understanding speakers & amplifiers, the software (Pro Tools), miking techniques & digital signal processing. By this time you will be proficient in recording & mixing in a studio as well as a live show. You will also be trained on acoustics & system design. To complete the course it is mandatory that you to take up the highly acclaimed Avid Pro Tools or Avid Venue certification examination.

EQUIPMENT

The facility brags of a state of the art studio with a sound proofed & acoustically treated control room & live room. While the studio set up is equipped with a Pro Tools HD System, industry standard reference audio speakers and an AVID control surface, the live setup includes Meyer Sound audio aystem, AVID digital live sound audio mixing consoles & analog audio mixing console along with outboard gear.

FEE

The course Fee is Rs. 3,50,000/- plus taxes

TIMINGS

Classes will be held on 4 days of the week for a minimum of 4 hrs a day. Students can use the facility to improve on their skills on their days off.
