ISCE announces September training dates

Two new training courses will be presented by Tony Stacey, MInstSCE. These will take place at Jurys Inn, Watford on 9-10 September.

The Institute of Sound and Communications Engineers (ISCE) has announced two new training courses to be presented by Tony Stacey, MInstSCE. These will take place at Jurys Inn, Watford on 9-10 September, commencing at 9:30am.

Open to all, the first session, entitled ‘Introduction to Sound’, is designed to enable delegates to gain a better understanding of what happens to sound after it leaves the loudspeakers.

People interested in this course will want to better understand how sound behaves but not necessarily the mathematics behind it. The course will begin by answering the question, ‘What is sound?’ and will go on to explain (with visual aids) the various phenomena of sound.

By the end of the course attendees will have gained a good understanding of how sound behaves, and hopefully become inspired to delve deeper into the world of sound and communications engineering.

The focus on the second day turns to ‘Designing for Speech Intelligibility’ and will teach delegates how to use the Speech Transmission Index (STI) and learn the factors that affect and limit speech intelligibility in a space – and how this can be overcome.

The course will also look at the relevant British and European standards for speech intelligibility and voice alarm systems and give an interpretation of their requirements. In addition, the course will introduce methods for verifying the intelligibility performance of a voice alarm system once it has been installed or upgraded, and investigate other relevant factors.

These training courses are aimed at anyone involved in the sound industry, and in the case of the second course, it will be focused on those specifying, designing or installing sound systems or voice alarm solutions.

Admission to each session is £175 per delegate for ISCE members (£195 for non-members), with discounts for three or more persons from the same company. All delegates will receive a Certificate of Attendance and CPD hours will be awarded.
