Frequently Asked Questions:
Question: Can anyone take the classes? What are requirements to enroll?
Anyone can take the classes. Individuals that are planning on completing our entire 5-course program in Audio Technology are required to have a high school diploma or high school equivalency certificate in the form of a GED. A person who does not have a high school diploma and is 15 years of age or older may take individual courses, but he will not receive our diploma that states certification of completion of our AUDIO TECHNOLOGY program.
Question: Can I sign up for individual courses?
You can take as many classes as you want. If you want to learn about live sound and mixing, you should just take the Basic classes. If you want to do music recording, you should take the Basic classes and the Advanced Lecture class. If you want to get a job in the audio engineering field, you should take all four classes.
Question: What is the LAB class schedule? When do I come to the studio to take my LAB class?
Our lab classes are 100% "hands-on equipment" format - the ultimate way to learn about audio equipment. The lab classes are ten weeks long. You come to the studio once a week for 3 hours to attend your lab class. You will schedule your 3-hour lab period at any time during the week that is convenient for you. Imagine... you sit down by yourself in the studio with the gear and have a full three hours to play with it and learn it.
Question: Do you help us get a job? Is there job placement?
The students that graduate from our complete 4-course program will make up the Audio Enginearing Institute's pool of Apprentice Engineers. They will remain in this pool for a full year from the date that they graduate. Once a year, a week after graduation, a poster of these students' names and phone numbers is sent to about 50 recording studios, radio stations, churches, television stations, and bands in the San Antonio area. This poster urges potential employers at these businesses to call the students listed.
Question: Is financial aid available?
We do not provide student loans, but you can "time pay" your tuition. Information about the time payment plan is given on our CLASSES webpage. If you are disabled, the Texas Department of Assistive & Rehabilitative Services may provide help with your tuition.
Question: Do you accept the GI Bill?
We are approved to accept tuition payments from the GI Bill. Call our office and we can get you started with the correct paperwork.
