Dublin-based Sound Training College is celebrating St Patrick's Day with a 25 per cent discount off all its Sound Training Online courses. The St Patrick's Day flash sale will begin at midnight today (16 March) and run for 24 hours ("about the length of time it took St Patrick to run the snakes out of Ireland," says the college).
All Sound Training Online course instructors are active industry professionals who have built and maintained successful careers in the music and pro-audio industries. "Using their expertise and years of experience, these professionals have created courses that teach a unique range of skills," says Sound Training Online, "so students can build successful careers of their own. Choose to do a course entirely at your own pace, or enrol on a premium course and have the course instructor provide weekly feedback and guidance throughout your programme."
