Sennheiser launches new training offensive – more RF Experts to support customer projects in future

The Sennheiser Sound Academy has begun a new RF Expert course. From February to September 2014, 23 wireless professionals from the worldwide Sennheiser organisation will be further trained to become RF experts, supporting their customers in the planning and execution of large events involving wireless technology. The first on-site training session took place from 24 to 28 February in Wedemark.

Extensive wireless microphone systems with several dozens of channels are now a matter of course at cultural and sports events, TV shows and large concert tours. At the same time, the complexity of the production environment is constantly increasing: in addition to the microphones for the artists and presenters, more and more channels are required for production staff to communicate and control the equipment as well as for the media reporting on an event. To make matters worse, the frequency spectrum that is available for wireless microphones is shrinking.

It is precisely these situations that are the specialist field of RF experts, who know how to make use of all technical possibilities to make complex projects with wireless systems a success. “Therefore, the course teaches extensive knowledge of the theory and practice of wireless microphone systems and antenna installations,” explained Kirsten Wessendorf, Manager Sennheiser Sound Academy. “Also, the production team at big events is very international, with many different groups of professionals working together. For that reason, intercultural training is a fixed part of the expert course.”

The 23 participants in the course come from 14 countries and, following the on-site week at the company’s headquarters, they will continue to be coached by experienced local tutors in their region. Two further on-site training sessions will round off the RF Expert training programme before it finishes in September. One of the successful projects involving RF experts who have already completed the course was, for example, the last Eurovision Song Contest.
