Adamson Amplifies Focus on Training & Education with New Certifications Ontario-based loudspeaker manufac- turer Adamson Systems Engineering is introducing a comprehensive and standardized educational program for 2017 and beyond. The tiered program offers a hybrid of general live sound principles and product-specific training to members of Adamson’s global network and the public, from novice technicians to experienced integrators and engineers. The Adamson Education Program begins online with pre-training material consisting of video tutorials and user handbooks designed to put participants on equal footing before diving into in-person training. The in-person component kicks off with Applied Certification, a two-day course designed to instill the framework needed to properly design, deploy, and control an Adamson loudspeaker system, utilizing Blueprint AV simu- lation software and Lake Controller. Adamson is currently developing the standardized Advanced Certification and Adamson Certified Engineer programs, set to premiere at the end of 2017. The three-day Advanced Certification course will explore more in-depth aspects of design and control for touring engineers and integrators.
