Instruction & Staff
7:1 STAFF RATIO
DMA Pro Series instructors are technology experts or industry professionals who have a passion for inspiring, teaching and mentoring. Our average student-to-staff ratio for Pro Series courses is 7:1 and in some cases, this ratio is even lower. This allows for lots of one-on-one instructional time, which directly promotes a stimulating and successful class experience for each student.
HANDS-ON, PROJECT-BASED LEARNING EXPERIENCE
DMA Pro Series courses provide hands-on, project-based learning designed to spark curiosity, confidence and collaboration. DMA’s immersive courses bring like-minded students together to inspire one another, and confidence soars when students gain knowledge, skills, critical-thinking abilities and hands-on experience.
“DMA provides students with a great environment
to learn new skills.”

Is any previous experience required?
No. This is a course for introductory to advanced students, but no matter their skill level, students will leave with some great experience and a broader skill set. DMA instructors take special care to ensure that all students are equally challenged and thoroughly understand not just the “hows” of 3D, but the “whys,” as well. You’ll leave with a solid understanding of the software and techniques.
What kind of access do students have to the Maya® software after the course?
Students can sign up for a free 3-year educational license from Autodesk®. Visit Autodesk’s website for more information.
