This certificate option is designed to provide individuals with the skills necessary to obtain a position as an apprentice to a working sound engineer, and can be combined with other certificates and/or Associates degrees to add audio skills and knowledge to those seeking degrees in Video Production Technology, Design Communications, or other media-related fields.  Graduates will possess a fundamental knowledge of techniques, procedures, and operation of equipment in the recording studio and live sound reinforcement field.  This includes training in the fundamentals of selection and placement of microphones, recording and editing techniques, audio electronics, troubleshooting, live sound, video production, and MIDI. This is a TSI-waived certificate.  Students declaring this major are not subject to the TSI regulation unless they enroll in a course outside the prescribed curriculum. 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. Program advisors are Chris Neal, Program Coordinator and Assistant Professor of Sound Technology; Stuart Moody, Assistant Professor of Sound Technology; and Rudolfo Guardiola, Instructor in Sound Technology.
