The Academy

Being a Sound Engineer or a Sound Engineering Student, you should be aware that noise pollution can cause stress, acoustic trauma (sudden deafness), noise-induced hearing loss (slow deafness) and cardio-vascular issues.

As a sound engineer, the chances are high that you can’t live without a headphone and you are supposed to be using one.

This might be an interesting piece of information for you if you are you a person who regularly use headphones.

Do you know that regular use of headphones can cause serious issues to your hearing sensation?

The situation is quite alarming among the youngsters.

According to a recent study, there is an increase in the number of young ENT patients owing to the use of headphones and earphones.

It has been found that frequent users of headsets are vulnerable to high-frequency hearing loss.

The saddest part is that their hearing will continue to deteriorate even if they stop using the gadget after the ailment is diagnosed.

With these type of serious hearing issues emerging in the society, the Indian Medical Association is observing No Honking Day in the city of Trivandrum to create awareness among the public regarding noise pollution.

We are publishing this blog post to shed light on the Noise Awareness day which is commemorated on the last Wednesday of April of every year.

It is named as International Noise Awareness Day and it is a global campaign to increase awareness of noise pollution around the world.

No-Honking Day in the City

Today No-HORN Day is being observed in the city of Trivandrum, where our academy is located, as part of the International Noise Awareness Day Celebrations.

In a country like India, despite alarming levels of noise pollution, nothing is being effectively done to address the issue.

The No-Honking Awareness program is an initiative by the State Branch of Indian Medical Association in a bid to usher in a new “sound culture”.

Indian Medical Association (IMA) has joined hands with National Initiative for Safe Sounds, Kerala Motor Vehicles Department, Kerala Tourism and Kerala Police to observe April 26 as No-Horn Day.

In SEA Campus

Being a socially committed organisation and a strong advocate against Noise Pollution we observed the same in our campus as well.

A message has been passed among the students and staff members to follow the special day’s objective and is encouraged to do something about bothersome noise where they work, live and play.

Realizing the magnitude of the threat that noise pollution poses, students took the pledge to reduce noise pollution at every opportune moment and it is agreed upon that they will desist themselves from frustrated and continuous honking which is the main source of sound pollution in the city.

Have you ever thought about the alarming state of Noise Pollution in your city?

Do share your thoughts with us about the Sound Pollution in your area and how you can reduce it as comments below.

courses, sound engineering career, The Academy

The aspiration of each individual is diverse and for those who are planning to build a career in the field of Media, Entertainment or Broadcasting then you are on the right track.

What is the Scope of Sound Engineering Career in India?
People are very much concerned about their future and everyone is looking forward to developing a future-safe career.

While on a discussion with the admission section of the academy, the executives have pointed out that this is one of the common question raised by those who get in touch with the academy to know more about the courses we offer.

As an academy which has created more number of Successful Sound Engineering Professionals in the past 14 years, we have got a convincing answer to this question.
Yes, the future is bright and lucrative for Audio Engineers.

Job opportunities for Trained Sound Engineers were always there and always there will be.

We are saying this from our experience as our placement division is unable to fulfil all the vacancies as per enquiries from various firms working in the field of Sound Engineering.

Sound Engineers are getting placed and earning an industry standard remuneration as and when they complete the course.

It is quite evident from the fact that, when we publish job vacancies in our Social Media channels for job openings especially for entry-level jobs there is very less response from passed out Sound Engineers.

Earlier we thought that the posts are not reaching the right candidates, but later on, we got in touch with our passed out students to know whether the messages are reaching them or not?

What we found was that almost all students got into entry-level jobs in the field of Sound Engineering as and when they complete the course.

Recently we have published a job vacancy of an entry-level position in our social media for a Hyderabad based live sound reinforcement company, the response from SEA Certified Sound Engineers was very less.

Only one person Arvind Nair was the only person who has responded to the ad and forwarded his resume, who has completed the course in August 2017.

When our placement division contacted him to provide more details about the job, he told that he is earning INR 25,000 per month working as a live sound engineer in Trivandrum and not interested to join an entry-level job with less salary of INR 12,000 Per Month.

It is obvious that SEA Certified Professionals are getting placed once they complete our diploma course.

One more interesting fact is that the above-mentioned person was not having any science or engineering background and he had actually completed his B.Com before joining the Diploma in Sound Engineering course

These type of inspiring real-life career stories and hundreds of others are the driving force behind us in improving ourselves for creating better sound engineering professionals.

When you search for Sound Engineering Courses in your favourite search engine or in your most used social network you can find many institutes are offering Sound Engineering Courses.

But if you refine your search you can find that many firms are offering audio engineering course as part of many other courses like multimedia, interior designing etc.

The fact is that they are not concentrating on a particular field of study.

As our name implies,  we are passionate about Sound / Sound Engineering Training and we are proud to say that we are an exclusive audio engineering campus in the country since 2004.

We are not complaining about others but what we are trying to say that as we are concentrating on a particular subject and delivering the course content form the basic level to advanced / latest topics on a single technology, our expertise on a particular topic helps students to gain more sophisticated know knowledge.

That will, in turn, help the students to become a better and focused professional in the field of Sound Engineering.

It is one of the reasons why SEA Certified Professionals are the most preffered professionals in the industry than others and that is why companies/firms working in the field of Sound Engineering keep coming back asking for SEA Certifed Professionals
