To introduce the trainee to the principles of sound and acoustic measurement.
The trainer will present the fundamentals of sound and its detection and measurement. Areas to be covered include:
- acoustical transducers,
- frequency spectrum,
- "weighting" of sound measurements,
- measurement of sound pressure levels, and
- "noise" hazards and typical sound levels.
The trainee will be expected to become familiar with the use of sound measuring equipment through assigned exercises.
