The CES Escuela Superior de Imagen y Sonido, or the “CES School of Image and Sound,” is the first official accredited school in the Madrid region in the sector of audiovisual education and training. It is also the most recognized audiovisual academy in Spain today.
In 1984, a group of recognized professionals of sound, image and education came together to respond to a growing demand for more audiovisual training and decided to form the CES Escuela Superior de Imagen y Sonido(CES School of Image Sound).

Along with the training the institution provides for students and professionals in the audiovisual industry, CES also features the latest equipment, nearly 5,000 square meters of facility space and the latest audiovisual technology—the same technology that is employed by the various businesses and organizations in this growing sector.
