The Sound Technology program prepares students to enter an occupation where electrical safety is a critical competency and will require all students to successfully complete a program specific safety examination prior to participating in laboratory activities. Safety examination includes written and practical “hands-on” preparation, demonstration, and safe operation of occupational processes and equipment.
