Live Event and Audio-Visual Technician

What You’ll Learn

What to Expect

In this 10-course program, you will develop a broad base of skills to work in five media fields: theatre, public events, broadcast television, audio-visual support services, and film production.

Located at our Lansdowne campus, the Live Event and Audio-Visual Technician program (EAVTEC) is two semesters long, with a mandatory internship at the end. There is also a part-time option. You'll learn through a practical approach involving applying fundamental skills in live event situations. During your studies, you'll learn with a cohort and move through the program as a group.

You'll develop hands-on skills in the following aspects of production: lighting, live and recorded audio, stage craft, audio-visual services, photography, and video production. Particular emphasis is put on the safe preparation and completion of tasks in live events.

Term 1

In your first term, you will take five courses. You'll learn about lighting, live audio production, stage fundamentals, photography and videography. You'll also take a workplace preparation course to get ready for your internship.

Term 2

In your second term, you will build on the basics. You'll take five courses covering multi-track audio production, multiple camera video production, advanced stage craft, audio-visual services, and a capstone course which you design along with your instructors.

Internship

After your second academic term, you'll complete a 300-hour internship to gain hands-on skills and work experience in live event and audio-visual services.
