Hi everyone!

Im new to the forum, just thought id sign up to get some info on qualifications and what paths other people have decided to go once finishing their apprenticeship!

Currently finishing my Level 3 NVQ portfolio, and have got all of my certs for my level 3 (2330).

I work for an audio company, although we do install electrical systems (usually supplies for our equipment, mains conditioning units etc) we mostly are installing audio equipment (obviously haha).

Can anyone recommend any qualifications that may be beneficial for this industry, as well as electrical? Soon i will be getting trained in voice alarm systems and i have been considering doing my level 4, although i don't know much about it!

Thanks in advance for your time!

Two qualifications you should look at.

CEDIA (Custom Electronic Design and Installation Association) Installer Level 1 or 2 or Designer Level 1 http://www.cedia.co.uk/

CEA CompTIA DHTI+ http://www.comptia.org/



If you feel you want to take your education further, look in to doing a Foundation Degree or BEng/BSc (Hons) degrees in electrical engineering or sound engineering. IET has some accredited courses that will take you on to a IEng or CEng path (search at http://www.engc.org.uk/educati...credited-course-search for "Sound Engineer"). Word of warning, a lot of "sound engineering" degrees are BA's and are more towards music.

I did BSc (Hons) Sound Engineering and Production at Birmingham City University.

Just noticed CompTIA no longer do the DHTI+. A shame, it was a good course.
