Smile Looking at going to California!

Hey gentlemen Iam looking at going to America later this year because I want to become certified upto Operator level in PT.

By the way before anyone asks the reason I am going to do it in America is because I live in Rio and it's cheaper to fly to America to do this than go back to England.

My question is where would any of you guy's reccommend is a great place to do this but offers the courses at a competetive price as I have looked on the net at 2 places so far and they have not been too cheap.

I am at 110 in version 7 right now and will need to go through the ropes of course to get to Operator so i will need to do I think 4 courses, I think it is?

So if anyone in the California area can point me in the right direction I would be very appreciative.

One last thing, my auntie lives in Santa Clara and I will be lodging with her so logistics is something I need to be aware of too.

Big thanks in advance, Baris

Hey Baris,

Since you'll be in Santa Clara, contact Bruce Tambling. He's expert level certified and teaches the 101 and 110 courses at Foothill College, which is very close to Santa Clara. He's a great guy and should be able to help you find a place to get certified.

I went to Audio Me in San Francisco. I think they have changed their name to Encompass Audio. Check them out HERE. Great staff! Knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly! Good luck.
