Training at Backthird
Backthird DJ/MC certification requires about 12 hours of class at the Backthird studio, plus a minimum of 25 hours of self-directed study and studio practice time. Trainees must also assist Backthird DJs at actual weddings and events to reach a minimum number of hours of event experience.
To graduate, DJs take a written music exam and give a series of final performances for our staff at the Backthird studio. Unless we believe you’re ready to run someone’s wedding like a pro, you don’t get certified.
Our DJs perform exclusively for Backthird Entertainment – but it’s possible to enroll in our certification program as a third-party DJ if you’re interested in learning our craft. Full training and certification starts at $4600. For more information, contact the Backthird office.
