Join the Avid Learning Academy partner program to teach and certify your students using Avid’s free tools for video and audio editing. Each curriculum in the program is designed to empower students to express their creativity while building career skills. 
The program includes:
  • Training for teachers by Avid experts
  • Turn-key curriculum anchored to CTE and National Core Arts Standards
  • Digital assessment platform that accommodates self-quizzing, graded tests, and administration of Avid's Associate certification exam.
The Avid Learning Academy (ALA) program is designed for high schools that need curriculum for music creation, audio production, and video production courses and programs. Combining the instructional excellence of our partners with content and curriculum certified by Avid’s product experts and course developers, this program prepares students and new entrants to the industry with the foundational skills they need to succeed in their creative endeavors, on the job, or in continued study in their chosen field.
Students who demonstrate their skills can achieve Avid Certified Associate certification, a credential delivered exclusively by Avid-certified teachers.

The Avid Learning Academy program supports schools and training organizations with high-quality, fully self-contained course offerings for their students. Our goal is to provide content, visibility, and support for ALA partners through easy-to-adopt training and certification solutions.
