Once Conservatory students reach the halfway point of their studies, students with a B or better grade average in the Digital Recording 101 course are offered the opportunity to gain Apple’s Logic 9 level 1 end user certification.Â The Conservatory picks up the cost of the book and the certification test which is over a $200 value. The new Apple Pro Training Series Logic 9 level 1 certification book just started shipping this month and CRAS has just issued its first set of books to qualifying students. Students work through the book on their issued MacBook computers which have Logic 9 pre-installed. Â By the time participants start working with the book they’ve already had extensive exposure to Logic and their path to certification is further supported through CRAS Connect, the Conservatory’s online system that is available to enrolled students. The Logic 9 course on CRAS connect offers quick connectivity to any of the Conservatory’s three Apple Logic certified instructors including one that was the technical editor on the certification book and leads the Logic Train-the-Trainer classes that all Logic certified instructors must attend. Having an Apple certification in Logic Â helps Conservatory graduates stand out in the competitive field of audio production.
