    Course description and aims

    This qualification reflects the role of individuals who possess a sound theoretical knowledge base and use specialised, technical or managerial competencies to plan, coordinate, carry out and evaluate technical requirements for productions, events or exhibitions in creative arts industry environments. They have autonomy in carrying out their own work and can be responsible for the output of others within broad parameters.

Incidental work may include fault-finding on equipment or changing like for like equipment by disconnecting and reconnecting the fixed wiring. It does not include any other changes to the fixed wiring.
