Wear a mask at all times in-doors
Sanitize your hands when entering
Keep a distance from classmates and your instructor
Stay home if you are feeling sick
Windows will be kept open as much as possible during class

343 Labs has exciting news this week, which is that it has been approved as an official Ableton Certified Training Center. There are only 117 Training Centers world-wide, so this is a great honor for us, and confirmation that our instructors and courses meet the high quality we have been aiming for. With three Ableton Certified Trainers on its teaching faculty, 343 Labs will also be one of the schools with the most Certified Trainers worldwide.

What is an Ableton Certified Training Center and what are the requirements to becoming one? Ableton Certified Training Centers need to have at least one Ableton Certified Trainer on faculty, and prove to Ableton that they are providing the highest level of Ableton instruction to their students, taught in facilities that meet certain requirements, such as teaching the latest software and having Ableton Push available for all students.
We look forward to continuing our relationship with Ableton, a company that we admire for constantly pushing the boundaries of music technology, and look forward to providing the highest level of music production courses to our community, both in NYC and Online!
