So, what Is DJCAA?

This Certification level is a exclusive membership and is not available to all DJs. It's a membership that requires each applicant to pass a *certification process and commit to professional and ethical industry standards.
As a member of the DJCAA, you are letting recording artists, venues and promoters know that you are a true professional DJ. A DJ that not only knows his/her craft but has been confirmed and verified through a third-party *certification process.
Once you have been accepted, and certified, into the DJCAA; you will have a secure website landing page that confirms your experience, job history, residency and music knowledge.
Why Should I Be Certified?
Simply put, it separates you from the amateur or DJ Hobbyist. Here's the argument; for years professional DJs have been outbid or undercut by amateur DJs for events and venues. With today's technology, someone can buy a laptop and software and instantly become a (so-called) DJ. Now a days, amateurs prerecord their mixes, burn them on a CD or file them on their computer, then stand behind the platform like they're mixing.
Then there's the legal aspect of the business. Many amateur DJ's will make their mixes available on their website. They illegally sell their mixes on burned CDs or downloadable files which affects the reputation of all of us.
To be certified by DJCAA, you're guaranteeing the public, recording artists, promoters and venues that you are a certified true DJ professional.
What Is The *Certification Process?
It's a patent-pending 3-stage process that is performed by professional staff members of DJCAA. Each stage of the process is verified and confirmed by more than one staff member. The first stage is confirming your job history, experience and residencies. The second stage is a DJ reference check to confirm no standing complaints pending. The third stage is the setup of your DJCAA profile and commtiment to professional standards like no music swapping, no online demo downloads, on-location conduct and more. It's definitely a certification that not all DJs pass.
