Memory Technician Certification
Our certification process is a rigorous
one, requiring over 18 months of intensive study and training. Learning
to interpret the VMS codes constitutes the majority of MT certification
training. Reading the code is extremely difficult; it is not read in
the same way we read language, but is rather traced via pattern recognition
and matching. The interest in this field of study has been overwhelming,
and with only Memory Ltd.'s own program available as a training center,
admission to the program has become quite competitive. If you are interested
in applying to the program, please contact us.
You may wonder why a "guide" is needed to experience a memory. The imagery
which constitutes our real memories means little without the context,
the story we've told ourselves and others every time we've "relived"
the experience via memory recall. The Memory Technician interprets the
raw codes generated by the VMI, the same codes which produce the EM
image stream. The MT is also trained to embellish and add coherency
to the memory narrative.
Here in our new Tempe offices, you have the great fortune of being guided
by the first and foremost Memory Technician, Isa
Gordon. In addition to her involvement with Sensory Engineering's
research team, Gordon helped develop both the MT certification program,
and also the complete immersive experience which now works in tandem
with the Visual Memory System.
