The Expert courses are very advanced and demanding. For this reason at Alchemea we will not allow you to enrol on a 310 (Expert) course until you have passed you Operator exam. Exceptions may be made for candidates who have used Pro Tools extensively within the industry. We therefore feel that it is in your interest to attain Operator certification before committing to a 310 course.
The current pass mark for Pro Tools Certification exams is 80%.
It is advisable to bring a notepad and a pen to take notes during the course. Everything else will be provided for you!

'In Holland I have had really good Protools courses. But Alchemea is just more than taking courses and doing exams! Its Audio everywhere, its meeting other (international) audio students, its having teachers putting the courses at a higher real-world level. No secrets just giving you all the opportunities you can get while using top facilities. The finest Audio atmosphere I have ever experienced after taking 7 courses during 4 weeks, is at Alchemea.' Paul Go (Senior Lecturer at Mediatechnologie, University of Applied Science, Utrecht) , Pro Tools (Music & Post Expert)
"Doing the technology courses (Pro Tools, Logic, Reason & Ableton) at Alchemea has sped up my learning curve immensely, and has been an invaluable experience. I feel a lot more confident with my studio skills and the production jobs are starting to pour in. (Oh yeah and the delis around the school are very nice as well)." http://web.mac.com/vigsound Marcelo Vig (session drummer, programmer, producer) (Patrick Wolf, Eminem, Avril Lavigne, Will Smith), Feedback for Various Short Courses: 2007
"Thanks for the great Pro Tools Expert and ICON training Neil, Justin and all at Alchemea. The family vibe is friendly and laid back but also intensive and very professional. I realised that to get on in the industry it was essential for me know Pro Tools inside out. Since gaining certification my confidence has grown and I have picked up lots of new work as a producer, programmer and pro tools operator (recently the live recording engineer for Daniel Powter, The Rasmus, Katy Perry & Eliseo Parra). Alchemea is for sure the best place to learn Pro Tools in Europe. Many thank and see you all again soon." www.myspace.com/saulsounddesign Saul Pariente (Producer Engineer), Pro Tools (Expert & ICON)
"I just wanted to write to you to say thanks for all this Pro Tools expert experience with you guys. (It was the most stressful experience of my life. jaja.) This was probably the most challenging goals I have set my self to achieve so far, and I'm pretty sure that what I have gained from this experience will be of great help in my developing career. Because of this, I just wanted to thank you all for helping me throughout this process. Good Luck and I'll see you soon!"
