"I considered going somewhere else to train, but that takes food and travel expenses, as well as additional days off work. I was able to complete these courses when I had the time and the cost was way better than the other ‘big’ training places."

Johnny R. - Audio Engineer

"The Instructor was extremely knowledgeable, presented the information very professionally, and cared enough to spend a little extra time with me to make sure I knew the material before I took the exam. I highly recommend these courses!"

Jose C. - Student

"The sheer cost of taking these classes in a ‘Big City’ was out of my reach, and I was ready to start recording today. These guys were a lot cheaper, and I could do the coursework as fast as I wanted instead having to wait 16-weeks for other places."

Gerry V. - Studio Manager
