    • Intelligibility metrics

    • Factors that affect the Speech Transmission Index

    • Loudspeaker choice and placement

    • Reverberation times

    • Direct-to-reverberant ratios

    • Intelligibility limits in an acoustic space

    • Measuring the Speech Transmission Index (STI-PA and indirect methods)

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

    If you are involved in specifying, designing or installing sound systems or voice alarm systems where speech intelligibility is important, including engineers, installers, system designers, estimators, consultants and local authorities, this course will benefit you.

      The ISCE Sound Engineer ECS card scheme matches the requirements of the CSCS scheme, in that it is compulsory that all participants must hold an up-to-date health & safety qualification in order to be awarded with a card. This is designed to prevent accidents and to promote safety and quality of work.

      However, to hold an ISCE Sound Engineer ECS card you must pass the ECS H&S assessment. Unfortunately, the ECS scheme does not allow the ISCE to accept a CSCS H&S assessment. The ECS H&S test is specifically designed to meet the basic H&S requirements of electrotechnical personnel.

      Those who successfully pass the ECS H&S assessment will be awarded with an ECS H&S Certificate, which can then be used to obtain an ISCE Sound Engineer ECS card within two years of passing the assessment.

      Candidates will need to bring:

      • A minimum of a 9″ web enabled device in order to take the assessment. A mobile phone will not be adequate.
      • Photo ID; original passport, driving licence or existing ECS card
      • National Insurance Number – will need to be confirmed on the day

      The assessment consists of multiple choice questions, randomly selected from a database of approximately 300. It is a ‘closed book’ assessment – no revision materials will be allowed into the exam room.

      The ECS H&S assessment has 45 questions to be completed in 30 minutes. 38 out of 45 correct answers will be needed to pass the assessment.

      The assessment comprises questions covering eleven topics. The numbers of questions randomly selected from each topic are:

      1 – Manual Handling Operations
      2 – Reporting Accidents
      3 – Personal Protective Equipment at Work
      4 – Health and Hygiene
      5 – Fire and Emergency
      6 – Work at Height
      7 – Work Equipment
      8 – Special Site Hazards
      9 – Electrotechnical
      10 – Environmental
      11 – General Health and Safety at Work

      Assessment Tests are final once submitted and cannot be amended by ISCE.

      An ECS Question and Answer Book is available to help candidates prepare for their ECS Health and Safety Assessment. Due to the specific electrical content in the ECS assessment, books supplied by other agencies (CITB etc) are not appropriate. The ECS Question and Answer Book contains all the questions and answers from the database that is currently used for the assessment.

      Please note, we require candidates to obtain the question and answer book at least ten working days prior to sitting the assessment, to allow adequate time for preparation. In the case of in-company or multiple bookings, it is the Employer’s responsibility to ensure that this condition is satisfied.
