Avid and Dolby team up for Pro Tools Atmos course

Avid and Dolby today announced a joint venture to launch the first Pro Tools-centric Dolby Atmos training course and certification. Accessed through the Avid Learning Partners program, the self-paced, blended training course will cover the integration of the Dolby Atmos Renderer with Avid’s flagship audio software.

Comprised of 40 hours of self-learning and 18 hours of instructor-led training, held over 3 days, the course concludes with a professional certification exam. Upon completion of the coursework and passing the exam, candidates will earn the Avid Certified Professional: Pro Tools | Dolby Atmos certification credential. It serves to allow Pro Tools mixers to recognize the components of a Dolby Atmos content creation studio, and outline workflows for creating immersive audio in Pro Tools. Students will also learn techniques for working with Dolby Atmos beds and objects, Pro Tools session management, Dolby Atmos Renderer configurations, and final delivery formats.
