Institute of Acoustics Certificate of Competence in Environmental Noise Measurement - Certificado de Competencia en la Medición de Ruido Ambiental
Full-time - 1 Year; Part-time - 2 Years
This course has evolved from those running successfully for more than 35 years and offers experience of most fields of acoustics whilst still allowing for specialisation in areas of particular interest. It is suitable for environmental health officers, technicians, acoustic consultants, building services engineers, environmental test engineers and audio sound engineers.
The course can be used as a conversion course for those who have no previous acoustics experience, while still being invaluable to those with previous knowledge. There is emphasis towards applied acoustics, relevant to
Individual units can be taken separately as part of continuing professional development. For the MSc course the project enables investigation of an area of interest in considerable depth; the topic and scope of the project are selected with the guidance of an academic supervisor.
Practical work is an essential part of the course giving direct experience of modern measurement equipment and techniques.
