Audio Technology I is a specialized certificated program that teaches the process of engineering and recording music. Students learn the fundamentals of audio technology, including sound characteristics, signal flow, console functions, microphone types and techniques, signal processing, audio equipment, studio procedures, equipment design, cables and multi-track recording and mixing techniques. Projects are assigned to emphasize and improve specific skills, from recording basic tracks through editing a finished mix. The industry standard and embraced AVID Pro Tools HDX System and AVID S6 M40 console or newer are used exclusively throughout all courses.
The Audio Technology I Certificate of Specialization is being modified to accommodate the reactivation of the original program requirements adding back into the certificate Music 242, REC ARTS III, Music 243, REC ARTS IV and MUS 201, Music Fundamentals, for a combined unit value of 16.0. This modification completes the minimum requirements for CTEA eligibility, funding allocation and Certificate of Achievement title.
Audio Technology I provides the necessary foundation for the Music and Recording Arts Industry. It includes an introduction to current and relevant recording equipment, AVID Pro Tools recording software, planning, scheduling and producing a recording session, and editing and mixing techniques that produce a portfolio of work for internships and job opportunities.

With all due respect and esteem for Cuesta College and our colleague, John Cascamo, I want to express concern about the apparent over-saturation of the market for graduates, for which I don't see addressed in the advisory committee notes for program development. I also note that one of the advisory committee members from industry (a program consultant?) has shuttered his business.
