Max IRCAM Certificate - Levels 1 & 2
Max IRCAM Certificates are administered at the end of the introductory and intermediate Max training courses. Their purpose is to evaluate participants' level by testing their ability to design, implement, and use applications created with the software. The results obtained will allow us to evaluate participants and determine their level of competence.

In addition to its face-to-face training courses, IRCAM offers online conferencing classes. A selection of these classes are taught in English or in French.
Cursus Program on Composition and Computer Music
This programme is intended to train ten composers every year using IRCAM's software applied to musical composition.
A progressive 12-month program (from October to September of the following year) allows students to acquire technical and computer autonomy.
Participation in the Cursus is possible by selection: IRCAM launches a call for applications during the second semester of the current year. Ten participants are selected to follow the course in the fall of the following year.
The Cursus program is considered to be continued professional training.
