Dante Certification Level 1 & 2 Training (Hands-on) – Los Angeles, CA

May 14 – May 15, 2019

Join us for Dante Certification hosted in Apogee Studio, featuring new Symphony I/O Mk II

Both dates have reached capacity.

On May 14th, and again on May 15th, Audinate and Apogee Electronics will be hosting a Level 1 and 2 Dante Certification Training course for beginner/intermediate Dante users in Los Angeles, California. This hands-on experience will allow attendees to have a synchronous practical experience with Dante as they are learning basic Dante concepts.

The training will take place in Apogee’s iconic studio, host to KCRW live sessions and tracking room of legendary mixing engineer Bob Clearmountain . Lunch will be provided at the event.

Date: May 14, 2019
May 15, 2019 (course repeated)
Time: 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Cost: Free (registration required)
Location & Parking: 1715 Berkeley St
Santa Monica, CA 90404

We ask that guests park in the following locations only:

  • Metered spots on Nebraska between Stanford and Centinela just south of the studio. Meters are free after 6pm.
  • Non-permitted street parking on Stanford between Nebraska and Colorado just west of the studio.
  • Please avoid all permitted parking areas – even after hours – as it disturbs the residents.

This “hands-on” experience course is designed for beginners who learn best by ‘doing’. Following along with the course lecture, attendees will have the opportunity to try out what they are learning in real time.
