Education

The Education Committee of the Swiss AES Section has developed a reglementation for a sound technician exam which is approved by the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SBFI/SEFRI/SERI)


The AES announces the new Federal Diploma - the TAV (Audiovisual Technician)

More than 20 years after the establishment of the "Sound Technician" Federal Diploma, the AES Swiss Section is proud to announce it's participation in the creation of a new Federal Diploma, the TAV - or "Audiovisual Technician".

The new diploma meets a demand from the Swiss broadcast, film and post-production industries for the elaboration of a diploma that recognises the AV world. The Swiss AES is one of four industry organisations participating and the first exams will be in 2019.

You can find full details in the règlement that is downloadable here in three languages.
