Specialist Audio Training for Superyachts
“Something is Missing”
The expensive audio systems onboard often sound disappointing. Sadly there are usually a few simple things most people are getting wrong. This training course gets back to basics and addresses them all.
Audio@SEA gives crew the awareness and technical know-how to make a BIG difference! It literally isn’t rocket science, but it IS audio science and physics. However, this course will cut through technical jargon and give easy to follow explanations and demonstrations of problems. And crucially, show crew what to do about them.
It is exactly what yacht crew need: hands on practical knowledge for the problems they are likely to encounter. Crew aren’t usually responsible for physically installing equipment in the first place. But on discovering a problem, what are they expected to do? Better still, we give crew the ability to check and improve the experience the equipment gives before it is used.
This course follows on from our popular AV@SEA course to help improve the most important thing with the AV systems: the end result! It is easy to forget that ultimately, we should be delivering an optimized and engaging audio-visual experience! Audio@SEA makes this possible by raising student knowledge, abilities and appreciation levels.
Audio@SEA also exclusively includes the new Crestron Superyacht Systems Specialist certification.
