The Sound Technology-Fundamentals of Sound Technology Certificate is designed to provide graduates with the skills necessary to obtain a position as an apprentice to a working sound engineer, and contains skills to enhance other certificates and/or Associates degrees with audio skills and knowledge for those seeking degrees in Video Production, Graphic Arts, 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. The Fundamentals of Sound Technology Certificate is a TSI-waived program. 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.
