Twenty-three Sennheiser participants from 14 countries have enrolled in the company's RF Expert course.

The Sennheiser Sound Academy has begun a new RF Expert course. Until September 2014, 23 wireless professionals from Sennheiser's worldwide organization 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 February 24-28 in Wedemark, Hanover, Germany.

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 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.

One of the focal points of the training program is Sennheiser's Digital 9000 wireless microphone system.

It is precisely these situations that are handled by 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,” explains Kirsten Wessendorf, Manager of the 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 RF Expert course offers extensive knowledge of the theory and practice of RF wireless transmission and also includes intercultural training.

The 23 participants in the course come from 14 countries and, following a week on-site at the company’s headquarters, they will continue to receive instruction from experienced local tutors in their respective regions. Two further on-site training sessions will round off the RF Expert training program before it finishes in September. As an example of the course's success, Sennheiser states that one successful project that involve dRF experts who have already completed the course was the last Eurovision Song Contest.
