Technicians/Engineers Qualifications2020-12-28T18:32:09+00:00

L-Acoustics acknowledges two levels of qualification for the exploitation of variable curvature WST systems: System Technician (ST) and K System Engineer (KSE).

The System Technician (ST)

ST status represents recognition by L-Acoustics that the technician has been trained in all the technical and operational aspects which are necessary for the preparation and the installation of a variable curvature WST system.

Mission and skills:

  • Preparation and installation of WST enclosures
  • Preparation and installation of L-Acoustics amplified controllers
  • Basic knowledge of SOUNDVISION software
  • Basic knowledge of LA NETWORK MANAGER software

How to become an ST?
The ST status can be obtained by attending the two Level 1 training days from L-Acoustics: System Fundamentals and K System.
The ST status is obtained independently for each of the K Systems, by means of the Certificate of Attendance to the corresponding module (K1K2, K3, KARA, or KIVA II).

The K System Engineer (KSE)

KSE status represents recognition by L-Acoustics, the industry and peers that an ST has achieved an advanced level of understanding in implementing L-Acoustics systems.

Mission and skills:

  • Preparation and installation of WST enclosures of various formats
  • Preparation and installation of L-Acoustics amplified controllers
  • Advanced knowledge of SOUNDVISION software
  • Advanced knowledge of LA NETWORK MANAGER software
  • System configuration and calibration

How to become a KSE?

The KSE status is an accreditation delivered by L-Acoustics following an evaluation of an individual application.

Before applying, the following pre-requisites must be met:

  • A minimum of five years’ experience in the audio industry
  • Two years or more experience on both one modular and one large format L-Acoustics line source system following
    qualification as an ST
  • An extensive real world experience and working knowledge of the L-Acoustics systems
  • Demonstrated fluency in both Soundvision and LA Network Manager software
  • Attend the level 2 training modules

If you meet the above prerequisites, we invite you to fill out the application form online, submitting five of your SOUNDVISION system designs and associated LA NETWORK MANAGER session files. All applications will be reviewed by the L-Acoustics Application department. For more information, please contact KSE@l-acoustics.com.
