The Dante Certification programme was created in response to overwhelming interest in Dante networking and audio networking best practices. Level 1 certification covered basic principles of audio networking and Dante. Following the release of Level 1, requests for further education led to the development of the Level 2 Certification.
Level 2 Certification was previously offered only at live events. This half-day training course was followed by a knowledge test and a hands-on skills test. Audinate has made the entire Level 2 course available online for those who are unable to attend live events, but inspired to extend their Dante education. The Level 2 course also includes an interactive simulator for the hands-on skills test.
The Level 2 Certification course is an intermediate to advanced level course that prepares AV personnel to design larger Dante network systems, and provides training on audio networking concepts such as clocking, unicast and multicast, latency, and redundancy. This course contains ten instructional videos, a knowledge test and the simulated skills test. The Level 2 certificate is awarded to those who successfully complete all modules, and pass both tests.
“We have been thrilled with the level of interest in the Dante Certification program since it was first introduced last year,” noted Joshua Rush, Vice President of Marketing and Product at Audinate. “We are excited to announce that the Level 2 certification course is now available online so that consultants, integrators and customers can now get certified whenever they want, and wherever they are located.”
