Why Do So Many People Choose SynAudCon Audio Training?
Our goal is to teach you the principles. Understanding how things work will help you reason through problems.
Audio encompasses a huge array of topics, each of which can be a specialty of its own. We have sifted through this sea of information and present only the topics relevant to sound reinforcement. Just as important, the topics are properly weighted relative to each other. This assures that we get from “A-to-Z” without spending too much time on “M.” What people get from SynAudCon is a shortened learning curve on the things they need to know to work in the audio field. We know that you must divide your time between audio and other technical fields, and we strive to offer the audio part in a way that complements the other technologies. Many physical principles span all technological fields.
When you are trying to understand something, it helps to see a picture. It also helps to relate it to something that you already understand that uses a similar principle. Many topics that seem complicated only need the right graphic or analogy to “make the lights come on.” Experienced audio people tell us that they have never understood complex topics like the decibel, impedance, phase, and constant-voltage until they came to SynAudCon Training. We often say “You already know this stuff, you just may not know that you know it.”
The online training is a rich multimedia presentation that you can experience at your computer. Pat makes it visual by using animations, analogies, and demos, and explains technical concepts by relating them to principles used in everyday life. It includes videos, text, PDFs for note-taking, our Audio Click-Rule Windows program (some courses). There are also quizzes, example scenarios, a test, a certificate of completion, and continuing education units (CEUs).
A comment from Pat Brown, “It is a big responsibility to stand before my audio peers and fill the role of instructor. I do so not as one with intellectual superiority, but as one who has invested the time to refine the topics for presentation. My audio background is the same as many of those who attend – an ongoing struggle to balance the theory and practice to get things done in an efficient and profitable way.”
An understanding of “when it matters” and “when it doesn’t” can only come from combining theory, practice, and years of field work on actual systems that must be completed on time and within budget.
Assistant instructors are often needed for specialty seminars and workshops. We call in some of the best and brightest minds in the industry with a proven ability to share their expertise.
We left this for last because it is a very important aspect of SynAudCon training.
In-person Training: This isn’t your everyday seminar. We provide an energized environment for learning, nice sit-down meals, and networking opportunities. We have learned over the years that if you put a group of people who love audio together in a room, things happen. Having a connection with the instructor and being a part of it all when a room full of people simultaneously just “get it” is really an amazing experience. It’s fun to sit back and watch problems solved, ideas ignite, and friendships form.
It’s time to turn off your cell phone and lose yourself to learning. This experience will recharge your creative battery and your passion for audio and send you home with new ideas and techniques. As one attendee commented, “This reminds me of why I pursued audio to begin with.”
Online Training: Our Learning Management System provides an organized and intuitive approach to training. Watch the lesson until you get it. The best part is you can take the training when it is convenient for you and it is mobile friendly.
We are a technology-driven company with old-fashioned values. We like what we do and it shows.
