BURLINGTON, MA — With more mixing engineers, studio technicians and audio professionals transitioning from traditional stereo and surround formats to Dolby Atmos, Avid and Dolby have announced a joint training course agreement to bring the first Pro Tools Dolby Atmos training course and certification to market. Accessed through the Avid Learning Partners program, the self-paced training course covers the integration of the Dolby Atmos Renderer with Pro Tools. The course consists of 40 hours of self-learning, 18 hours of instructor-led training (held over three days), and 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.

The PT210D Pro Tools Dolby Atmos Production course will enable Pro Tools mixers to recognize the components of a Dolby Atmos content creation studio, and outline workflows for creating immersive audio in Pro Tools. They will also learn techniques for working with Dolby Atmos beds and objects, Pro Tools session management, Dolby Atmos Renderer configurations and final delivery formats.
