Certification Exam Attempts

All diploma students have to attempt these exams. User certification is attempted after completing the 110 course, Operator Certification is attempted after completing a 210 course. As mentioned above, all certification exams include 2 free attempts, thereafter a rewrite fee (set by Avid) is incurred.

Passing Grade

Avid sets an 80% passing grade on each of the online Assessments and Certification exams. Once a passing grade is achieved the student is then eligible to proceed to the next level of the Avid Training and Education Program.

Progressing To Next Module

Students will not be allowed to attend classes on the next modules if they have not yet passed the previous level. In other words, you cannot attend a 201 class if you have not yet passed 110, and you cannot attend a 210 class if you have not yet passed 201.

Assessment Sessions

For full-time students Pro Tools assessments will be scheduled in class. These assessment dates are not changeable; if you miss these dates, you will be required to book and write during a rewrite session.

Progressing To Next Level Of Assessments

Once a student has passed their assessment they can progress to the next module. Students that have not passed their previous Pro Tools module when the next module starts will have to wait for the next iteration.

A student will not be able to use their free attempts for one module assessment towards another level module assessment.


If a student passes the 101 assessment on their first attempt, and fails the first two attempts at 110, they have no more free attempts for 110, and will have to book and pay a rewrite fee.

Exam Environment

All Certification exams and Avid Assessments are to be taken under full exam conditions, including no books (“closed book”) and with the Pro Tools application closed.
