New NSCA Course Provides Practical Knowledge of Audio Systems
A new online seminar helps entry-level and experienced audio systems technicians gain years of experience and knowledge in just 16 hours. NSCA University’s Technical Fundamentals of Audio course, which is now available in a convenient online experience, provides instant technical knowledge for a variety of audio marketsincluding commercial, industrial, education, and government facilities.
Participants will earn eight Learning Units (LUs) within NSCA University’s College of Technical Knowledge and gain valuable information on topics such as decibels, Ohm’s law, series and parallel circuits as voltage and current dividers, subjective loudness and temporal masking, and sound distribution over time.
“NSCA understands that technicians and installers don’t always have time to participate in onsite training,” says Norah Hammond, NSCA senior director of professional development. “The Technical Fundamentals of Audio course provides a concise summary of techniques that can take years of self-training and experience to obtain otherwise. Plus, the online option allows for convenient training that fits your schedule and produces skilled employees for years to come.”
The instructor-led course brings together two of the industry’s most knowledgeable instructors on the fundamentals of audio systems. Larry Garter, NSCA’s master instructor, provides techniques for 10 great ideas in audio technology including math, measures, electrics, and hearing.
The 16-plus-hour experience is $299 for NSCA members and $369 for nonmembers. NSCA members can also apply their education credits for up to 25 percent of the price of the course. Upon registration, participants will have access to the instructor-led course for 45 calendar days.
