AATCE

East Meadow High School is an AATCE (Apple Authorized training center for education), affording students with the opportunity to take the Apple certification exam upon completion of the Music Production class taught by our own Apple authorized trainer, Mr. Kinslow.

 

This past May, several students passed the very challenging Apple Certification test and achieved Apple Certified Pro status.  This certification places students in a unique class of professionals who demonstrate a commitment to excellence and a thorough knowledge of the art of recording.  Additionally, this certification is a great resume builder for both college application and job seeking.
