Audiovision technician apprenticeship

Provide a broad range of professional solutions for communication

The audiovisual industry is a growing industry, forecast to be worth $230 billion in 2023. As an audiovisual (AV) professional, you’ll be employed in fixed ‘site-specific’ roles (such as institutions, event spaces, offices, meeting rooms) and on ‘touring’ events in venues of various sizes (from small clubs to stadiums). Some of this work is carried out at height. The main purpose of your role is to provide a range of solutions for communication including videoconferencing, hybrid in-person/online events, sound, lighting, projection, and computer networking by planning, installing, configuring, and operating hardware and software. AV hardware includes audio mixing desks, video cameras, public address systems, display screens, projectors, wireless microphone systems, recording devices, lighting systems, encoders/decoders, and network switchers. AV software includes videoconferencing platforms, digital audio workstations, video editors, media servers, sound-reinforcement design/control, lighting design/control, and computer networking tools. As part of a support team, you’ll need excellent project management skills, an evaluative approach, and the ability to synthesise client requirements, project specifications, and budget.
