IPS Audio Fundamental Training Courses
      #1109279 - 24/06/14 04:45 PM
A series of half-day courses in the fundamentals of audio engineering is being run by the Institute of Professional Sound (formerly the IBS).

The aim is to provide audio practitioners with a series of short courses designed to cover the basics of sound engineering, that they can attend on an ad-hoc basis. In today's fragmented freelance world it is often hard to get basic training without signing up for a lengthy college course that often does not address the areas you wish to cover, and concentrates on areas that freelancers may not require for their day to day jobs. Instead, the bespoke IPS half-day courses are designed to fill the knowledge gap that has been left as the big broadcasters downsize.

The first four half-day modules are to be run on Saturday mornings at the National Film and Television School (NFTS) in Beaconsfield, and will run over four consecutive weekends starting on the 12th July 2014. Subsequent courses will be run in various regional centres to ensure that the maximum number of people get access to the training material.

The courses will have a small number of delegates, enabling the tutor to spend time with individuals, and will be available to members and non-members of the IPS and will cost £48 per session (£40 plus VAT). This scheme is supported by Creative Skillset's Film Skills Fund, which is funded by the National Lottery via the BFI, and through the Skills Investment Fund (SIF). It is not necessary to sign up to all of the courses: delegates can pick and choose which modules they wish to attend to enhance their skill set.

We have aimed the material at sound practitioners who are in the early stages of their careers who feel that they could benefit from understanding some of the basic fundamentals of sound engineering. Each module is primarily practical in nature, with appropriate classroom learning for each topic.

The first four modules cover:

12/7/14 - What is Sound/Mic 101
19/7/14 - Mic Placement
26/7/14 - Anatomy of a mixer/Levels and Meters
2/8/14 - Compression and Eq

and are being authored by Hugh Robjohns and Rupert Flindt, both highly experienced and respected practitioners and trainers, who will also deliver the courses.
