Certification for your DAW - a 'prerequisite' for work?

For everything after the recording stage: hardware/software and how you use it.

Reading the manual is a sign of weakness dude.

But learning, having an open mind and striving to get better is a good attitude, regardless of how an individual prefers to learn.

Now that I agree with!

Cheers,

Hehe - yes, that is *exactly* the psychology that some people have!

It's like having to turn to the manual is an admission of failure, that the individual must be "stupid" because they don't automatically know everything there is to know about a complex tool implicitly.

They'd rather publicise their "ignorance" by professing it to thousands of people on the internet, rather than admitting it to themselves and looking up something in the manual in private!

Bizarre, like I say, it fascinates me... the Human Animal, and all...

I recall chatting to a Digidesign rep once when I worked in a shop about these PT 'qualifications' you can get. They all seemed to be about memorising keyboard shortcuts. Woo.
