Entertainment Technology is from the arts, audio-visual technology and communications cluster and is a two-year program. Lights, camera, action! If these are your cues, you will be interested in this course. Students gain skills in the audio/visual technologies used behind the scenes in the entertainment industry: computer technology, audio/visual recording and production, set design and construction, stage lighting, and sound systems. Behind-the-scenes opportunities will be provided through partnerships with entertainment sites such as the Alabama Theater and through local events. Studies will also include digital video editing and production. Students receive safety training before participating in hands-on projects. The average salary for a sound engineering technician is $19.03 an hour with many earning above $33.02 an hour.

Salary information was obtained from the current edition of the Occupational Outlook Handbook published by the U.S. Department of Labor (www.bls.gov/oco). Potential earnings are based on national salaries for an average work week.  Local earnings will vary and depend upon business conditions and a worker's level of education, motivation and experience.
