Britannia Row introduces new training facility

Britannia Row Productions will begin offering courses in live sound practice and theory at a new Training Centre from April 2013.

A three-month intensive full-time Live Sound Technology course will cover all essential aspects of live audio production, while Advanced courses will provide training to industry professionals looking to develop their skills further in specialist areas such as mix engineering.

Due to the growing demand for well-qualified technicians throughout the entertainment and event industry and the increasing complexity of audio technology, Britannia Row decided to offer its existing training service to people outside the company. The best Live Sound Technology graduate of each intake is also guaranteed a paid apprenticeship with Britannia Row Productions.

“Uniquely Britannia Row Productions Training exists right at the heart of the live production industry, thus we are able to give students direct exposure to the very latest equipment, procedures and techniques utilised at the professional level,” said course director Barry Bartlett. “Students will also learn the practical, creative and personal skills required to successfully work within the industry.”

“This level of integration with the industry is unique,” added Britannia Row Productions Training MD Matthias Postel. “Supported by Britannia Row’s networking capacity, students are presented with excellent opportunities to start work as live sound professionals.

"Britannia Row Productions knows exactly what it takes to produce world class audio for live events: skilled and experienced technicians who know the equipment, can work with other people, and make it happen under pressure. We offer training for all these requirements to provide a straight-forward entry into the live sound industry.”

The first three-month full-time Live Sound Technology course will commence in April 2013, with one-month specialist courses offered later in the year. Further information is available via the Britannia Row website here or by emailing Matthias Postel on
