HAA Home Theater Certification Course Sept 9-13 San Diego, California

Posted on

HAA Training sessions are coming to San Diego, California after CEDIA Expo.  We found a great venue at the San Diego Ramada Inn only 20 minutes from the CEDIA Expo. Come join us for an exciting session discussing home theater, media rooms, immersive audio, and even 2-channel sound.   We’ll also be investigating holding a social event for nearby enthusiasts if there’s enough interest; join the HAA Training Discussion Group to let us know if you’d attend.   As always you’ll enjoy the latest information on small room acoustics and proper design and calibration techniques. 

Register now to reserve a seat.  We expect a strong demand and we have limited seats available.  This course will provide HAA certifications only.

HAA has been providing the best audio and acoustical training in the custom industry for 18 years. The training began as a 2-day technical course on audio design and calibration and has expanded to be the most comprehensive technical training found anywhere. The improvements have been made through incremental changes over the years identifying ways we can teach concepts better and adding new scientific information as it is developed. This is proven training and has never been better. Come see why we have the best satisfaction results from students. HAA delivers and its worth every penny.

  • In depth technical explanations geared for an integrator to become an expert or the expert to become the best!
  • Learn the latest state-of-the-art techniques to design acoustically perfected listening rooms including correct speaker, seating, sub-woofer, and acoustical treatment placement; there’s more here than just angles and rules-of-thumb. Learn to adapt based on the room!  
  • Follow-on support via the HAA community and web portals.
  • True hands-on work during the Integrator and especially the Advanced Integrator Workshops.
  • Time tested and recommended training with new ideas for maximizing sonic performance: HAA has been training integrators for many years. 
  • An introduction to professional listening techniques in the Integrator Workshop.
  • Extensive listening training in the Advanced Integrator Workshop.
  • Correct use of audio analysis tools (RTA, FFT, ETC) and use of the AVPro Report Writing Software.
  • Equalization training and, in the Advanced Integrator Workshop, actual calibration of a parametric EQ.
  • Small class sizes; Advanced Integrator Workshop is limited to 6 students.

HAA Calibrators are invited to come back to upgrade!  If you’ve always wanted to take the HAA Level II Workshop, you can attend the HAA Advanced Integrator class.  Upon completion of the certification tests, you’ll earn the HAA certifications and permission to use our logo on your website and business cards.  If its been over a year since you’ve taken the HAA Level I course, you need also sign up for the prerequisite HAA Integrator class as a refresher and as a new source of valuable training; as an HAA Member you’ll receive a valuable discount based on your previous training.

HAA HT1 Certification: This class teaches the fundamentals of proper Home Theater design principles along with an overview of important acoustical principles and terms.  It’s ideal as an introduction to small room acoustics for the pro, but it offers totally new insights on high performance design for more advanced students.  It’s also a must-attend class for AV sales people, project managers, and every integrator.  Enthusiasts are also welcome.  We’ll discuss professional design requirements for room construction and room layout including the proper positioning of seating, speakers, sub-woofers and acoustical treatment. There’s new ideas here that you likely haven’t heard about.  While the material is technical, the class will focus on creating a clear understanding using basic terminology and discuss ways for integrating proper acoustical design with modern interior design preferences.

HAA HT2 Integrator Certification: This is an advanced how-to design/calibrate class evenly split between class room training and a hands-on workshop. While created for  integrators, it is great for designers, project managers, and even enthusiasts.  The class leverages the HT Design principles introduced in the HT Adviser class with more technical explanations and examples. It discusses acoustical principles to create a deeper understanding of HAA design standards aiming to prepare the student with better problem solving skills. The class includes the HAA TurboCal Workshop designed to start you running with an efficient and practical audio calibration process; we will calibrate a live system during the workshop. Training high points include learning how to use an FFT and RTA analyzer, how to be a pro listener, calibration documentation, advanced sub-woofer calibration, speaker and seating placement, and designing a practical acoustical treatment strategy. Prerequisite is previous HAA HT1 Adviser class attendance within the past year.  Don’t forget there are discounts for retaking classes for current HAA Members.

HAA HT3 Advanced Integrator Certification: This workshop is an all hands-on session designed to bring all the prerequisite training to the test. This class pulls all the information and techniques from the prerequisite classes into a fantastic review and cements the concepts for the most complete understanding.  The student is teamed with no more than 5 others who are tasked to incrementally design and calibrate a high performance system. Nothing less than amazing results are allowed. The team is asked to complete the HAA PowerCal process including several eye-opening instructor led learning sessions conducted with your audio system. You’ll understand subwoofer placement, room modal analysis, speaker/seating placement and acoustical treatment design from both a theoretical and experiential point of view. Our rule is that nothing is changed without measuring and hearing the difference. This class will change your perspective on audio and open up a new opportunity in building high performance systems.  Prerequisite is previous HAA HT2 Integrator class attendance within the past year.

What to bring: You are welcome to bring your laptop and test gear for tool specific advice, but it is not used in the class: Laptops and test gear will be provided.  Workshops use the AudioTools Audio Analysis package for iPad and the HAA Audio Calibrator Kit.

Lunch is provided but lodging and travel are not.  Cancellations are not allowed within 30 days of the event. Refunds are not possible but an effort will be made to accommodate you in the next available class within one year.
