Exam for Max certification level 2

3 hours // Saturday, March 12, 2022, 2:30pm-5:30pm
6 students maximum

The certification test is made up of two parts (90 minutes each):

  • A test of the applicant’s knowledge with open questions and comments and screen captures;
  • Following a break, a series of exercises is given to the applicant with several concrete cases, with increasing difficulty. The applicant must find solutions, as if she were in a professional situation (test on a Mac computer with Max).

This exam evaluates users in a real-life professional situation.

The jury consists of two teachers (IRCAM Computer Music Designers/ Specialized Instructors) and a specialist in Max.
A certificate with the results will be sent to the participants 3 weeks following the exam.
