    Default Traktor Certification

    Hello all,

    I was wondering if there is a course that I can take that officially qualifies me for Traktor.

    I was thinking about starting up a dj course/school for the younger generation but it would be nice to have a certificate to show that I am qualified to give the course.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated, Thanks

    Your skills as a DJ should be your qualification.

    I agree, I don't need a certificate to be a dj, but it would be nice to have one if your going to give lessons. this way the parents won't think your just a dj trying to make money off of them them. There are a bunch of courses online but I was looking for one that is related directly to native instruments.

    What do you expect to get from this course that you can't just by practicing and watching from YT?

    A certificate/diploma that shows for it. I know everything I need to know for now. But you never know, you might actually learn something by taking a bigger step towards what you like

    I understand your doubts, but think of it as a in depth explanation of the software/controller by someone qualified to do so with a well organized structure and small classes so a lot of 1 on 1 time. Not going to give you the full details. hopefuly you get the idea. You should have a bit more of an open mind. It's an activity for kids 12/13 and up and it's something productive for them if they enjoy making or playing music.

    Let your EPK speak for itself. Make sure that you structure the class. You wanna start with basics (loading up tunes and playing them) then step up from there.

    Develop a lesson plan and sell based off of a mixture of both the lesson plan and your experience.
