A new part-time option of the Live Sound Technology course will be offered by Britannia Row Productions Training starting in January, 2014.
With classes taking place on one weekday evening plus one weekend day per week, the course becomes accessible for those who work full-time or have other commitments.
While contents and learning outcomes of the course remain essentially unchanged from the full-time version of the training program, the curriculum will be delivered in three sections: Live Sound Fundamentals, System Engineering, and Mix Engineering. This structure allows for holiday breaks between the sections as another feature to make it feasible for people in full-time employment to take this course.
The 13-week sections are delivered over a 47-week period with eight holiday weeks allowing for spring and summer breaks.
This expansion of course options marks the next stage in Britannia Row Productions Training’s progress of offering training designed by and for the live sound industry.
Managing director Matthias Postel: “From conversations we have had with people interested in the Live Sound Technology course it became clear that we would need to provide an opportunity for those who do not wish to give up or suspend their day job during their re-training period. This allows to prepare for a career change towards live sound with over an extended time frame.”
This alternative also accommodates the circumstances of trainees by spreading course fees over three installments that correspond with the three sections that the course will be divided in.
The training program benefits from the expertise, equipment resources and connections of Britannia Row Productions, a leading live sound company noted for touring with artists such as Depeche Mode, Peter Gabriel and Robbie Williams, and sound at events such as the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, BRIT Awards and MOBO Awards. The company is working with many new artists this autumn including Rudimental and James Arthur.
Through its highly practical format and industry-designed curriculum the course equips trainees with the skills that are required for work as sound technicians in the live sound industry. Graduates are supported in finding work, including the unique job guarantee for the best performing graduate who will be offered a position with an initial one-year contract with Britannia Row Productions.
