The IoA Certificate of Competence is a highly valuable qualification both for new staff in acoustics consulting and for anyone involved in planning outdoor developments or events (including events management companies, architects, architectural technologists and development officers for large companies).
It is also relevant for people who are consulting on noise impact (for example as part of an environmental impact assessment) or responsible for enforcing legislation on noise pollution (environmental health officers).
The certificate is also a core part of CPD for many other fields, in particular environmental health and environmental consulting, and successful completion allows you to apply for technician-grade membership of the Institute of Acoustics.
Graduates from this course have worked in Local Authorities, acoustic consultancies, environmental consulting, facilities management, event management and live sound.
We offer opportunities to continue study in Acoustics with the Institute of Acoustics Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control (meeting the educational requirement for corporate membership of the IoA), and also offer an MSc in Applied Acoustics.
