For the last twenty past years, Itemm has gained experience in training “Engineering”. Together with the Univerty of Maine, Itemm is developing internationally recognised technical diplomas.
Together with the University of Maine, Itemm has developed a Higher Education Diploma for professional music technicians in musical instrument making-repairing-tuning (Guitar/Piano/Wind Instrument/Accordion) and in sound engineering.
Europiano, European Association of Piano Builders, strong of 3500 members, with the help of Itemm set up the “Europiano Technician Exam”, the first European accredited certification in piano tuning and repair.
This certification was the first step to a European diploma with skills confirmed by an international jury of professionals. This certification not being recognised by European training institutions, two additional vocational training and diplomas schemes (equivalent to GCSE and A-Levels in the Commonweath or High school diploma and SAT in the US) should be available at Itemm soon. To fastfoward the process of certification and equivalency, Itemm is bringing together international instrument making stakeholders.
