As students progress through the DMI courses, there are opportunities to gain hands-on experience within a wide range of recording sessions booked in the DMI studios, some with monetary compensation.
There are three levels of DMI student engineers, as follows:
To reach each of these levels, a written and applied test must be taken and a designated level of achievement reached before being given the opportunity to work as a student engineer or studio assistant in the DMI studios. Study guides and class requirements for each of the three levels are in the pdf files below. Testing will be done on a regular basis on Thursday evenings and/or Friday mornings. For specific scheduling of tests, please contact Mike Iacopelli, Coordinator of Sound Recording Technology at (662) 846-4579 or email@example.com.
