Training and Certification

Come and Experience Midas Certified Training

The Midas Certified Training is committed to our customers worldwide. We have established Learning Centres around the globe. You can choose three locations that best suits your attendance. Each location provides the same high quality training experience.

Whether a student goes through training in Las Vegas, Manchester or Zhongshan they will leave with the same knowledge and skills that have made the program one of the best in our industry. Each Centre offers our 1 and 2-day Midas Certification training filled with skill development and hands-on instruction using Midas products. And to ensure instructors can provide personal attention to each student, classes are limited to 16 seats.

Before a student is eligible to attend, he or she must register online and have a basic understanding of audio systems and mixing console technology. After you complete your registration, Midas education staff reviews the registration and confirmed students receive an electronic confirmation with instructions specific to your training location.

Certified Midas Digital User CMDU

The one day Certified Midas User training course is designed to enable an engineer to walk up to a PRO Series and mix their show. It provides as much hands on time as possible, while explaining the main day to day features of the system. It is very much an operator based course focusing on the control surface and user interfaces. It also forms part of the two day course.
