Course details

The simplest of meetings require some form of audio-visual or event production equipment. From microphones and LCD projection to sophisticated multi-media; event professionals need to be familiar with the technical requirements of meetings, conferences and special events. This course introduces you to the technical aspects of special events including lighting, sound, video, staging, power, rigging and special effects. You will visit and experience various event venues and observe set ups to gain valuable hands-on experience in the world of event technical production. You will also use a simulated event to learn these skills.
