Apply to Become a Certified Trainer

    Do you love Max? Is it a big part of your creative life? Do you love sharing your knowledge of Max? Are you helping build a Max community where you live?

    Cycling ’74 is looking for talented Max professionals who pay attention to detail and want to help grow the Max community as educators. We are building a small diverse team of skilled Max generalists with knowledge of different aspects of the environment to demonstrate and instruct others in Max. If you feel like you have what it takes, please apply below.

    Good luck!


    Before you apply:

    • We will be entrusting you to be ambassadors for Max and Cycling '74. It's important that we know you have great communication skills, are personable, and are detail-oriented. The first test of that ability is that you fill out the submission form in full.
    • If any of these criteria are not met, your application may be rejected. Remember: detail is key.
    • We receive a large amount of applications and cannot respond to each one. You will likely hear from us only if there is an upcoming certification event. We will get in touch with further steps if we feel that you are a suitable candidate.
    • Please save certification@cycling74.com as a trusted contact in your email. In case we contact you, it will not go to spam.
    • All applicants will be considered without discrimination due to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, veteran, or disability status.
    • We acknowledge that there is a significant under-representation of womxn, BIPOC folx, GNC and LGBTQ+ in the music technology industry. We actively encourage applications from all backgrounds in order to address this imbalance.
