Big Noise Institute to Deliver a New Fairlight Certification Programme

The company's ground-breaking digital audio technology is now the subject of a new course that aims to deliver accredited Fairlight engineers to the post production industry.

Audio students and professionals worldwide can now achieve certification in Fairlight’s cutting-edge digital audio technology thanks to a new course being developed by the Florida-based Big Noise Institute (BNI).

Established in 2015 by Mark Matthews and Robin Sibucao, BNI offers a range of courses covering subjects such as audio production and studio equipment fundamentals; live sound reinforcement, and post production. Big Noise Institute provides a “real world” educational certification program for audio technology that specialises in training students for professional audio, recording, broadcast and film.

BNI’s Fairlight Post Engineering Certification, which starts in February 2016, will provide students with a pathway to learn about the speed and workflow benefits of the company’s professional Post Production systems. This certification is not restricted to BNI students and is available to all interested parties.   

“The aim of this course is to create a group of certified engineers who can make their in-depth knowledge available to the professional Post Production market,” Mark Matthews says. “The course is designed to be beneficial to Fairlight’s user base and partners, as well as to our students who will acquire useful and marketable skills relating to one of the industry’s most advanced digital audio technologies.

Philip Belcher, Fairlight’s CEO, adds: “We are delighted to have BNI offer Fairlight Certification programs that will enable engineers and the production organisations they work for to take full advantage of Fairlight’s innovative technologies and superior workflow capabilities.  As a long standing innovator in audio technology, Fairlight realises that great technology is only part of the solution.  Having highly skilled people is essential and BNI’s programmes address this critical requirement in the market for Fairlight Certified Engineers.”

Although BNI offers classroom-based study, the Fairlight Post Engineering Certification course will be delivered on-line using the latest interactive learning technology. This will enable a wider number of students to take part, regardless of their geographic location. For more details and pricing please contact BNI at [email protected]
