SynAudCon has announced an arrangement with Australia-based AV training provider Technication to bring its in-person audio education seminars to Australia and New Zealand on a regular basis.
Acting as SynAudCon’s local agent, Technication’s Matt Vance will deliver the seminars, commencing April 2016.
The first seminar offered is the two-day “Core Principles of Audio,” which covers the essential theory of audio and focuses on what practitioners need to know to effectively deploy and operate a sound system.
Topics such as signal flow, component interconnection, grounding, loudspeaker placement, microphone basics and mixer setup are covered in a manner that is applicable to both installation and live production sound systems alike.
The course is open to anyone with an interest in strengthening their audio knowledge, from beginners looking for a solid grounding in audio theory to professionals looking to solidify their fundamental knowledge.
“We’re extremely pleased to be working with Matt at Technication,“ state SynAudCon owners Pat and Brenda Brown. “We’ve enjoyed watching his progress with Technication and are confident that they will represent SynAudCon well. We’re absolutely delighted that SynAudCon’s Core Principles of Audio will be taught regularly in Australia and New Zealand.”
“Attending a SynAudCon seminar in 2013 was a light bulb moment,” Vance adds. “It allowed me to see first-hand how complex audio concepts can be made understandable in an easily accessible way. Technication has given me the perfect vehicle to bring SynAudCon’s unique educational approach to our part of the world, and I’m excited to be able to offer their renowned, high quality, audio training to my peers in our local industry.”
Vance, who holds degrees in physics and electronics engineering, combined his love of music and physics to work as an acoustical consulting engineer specializing in architectural acoustics. He has also worked as a technical trainer for an Australian distributor of professional audio products, providing certification training and technical support for both ClearOne and Symetrix DSP platforms. Along with co-founder Matt Davies, he launched Technication in 2015 with the goal of delivering technical training specifically for the audio visual industry.
The Core Principles of Audio seminar is approved for 16 Infocomm CTS Renewal Units, and will be held in Australia and New Zealand throughout 2016. The first three dates:
May 3-4, 2016 – Melbourne, VIC
May 10-11, 2016 – Sydney, NSW
May 17-18, 2016 – Auckland, NZ
