Solotech UK has recently been accredited as an L-Acoustics Authorised Training Centre. This status enables Solotech to schedule, deliver and certify training across the full L-Acoustics range of products, independently of the manufacturer.
Solotech in the UK has a well-established relationship with L-Acoustics via its companies SSE Audio, Wigwam, Captial Sound and BCS. Since first investing in a V-DOSC system in 2005, the company has built up the largest rental stock of L-Acoustics in the UK, become a sales partner for the brand and achieved a manufacturer accreditation in distribution, systems integration and rental.
Solotech’s accredited trainers are Application Engineer Kyle Durno and Technical Manager Nick Lythgoe who have a wealth of L-Acoustics experience in integrations and touring respectively. Kyle Durno comments, “It’s fantastic that we are now certified to deliver L-Acoustics training. Previously we hosted training sessions that were delivered and managed by L-Acoustics. Our new status means we can offer the end-to-end process, including course delivery and the issuing of certificates.”
Nick Lythgoe adds, “The L-Acoustics ATC status means that we can now tailor the course schedule to meet our customers’ requirements. For example, if we sell a system to a theatre, we can arrange to deliver the training to them on site as part of the package. We can put our own crew and warehouse staff through any training their roles require, and we’ll continue to schedule training at our UK locations as well and advertise these to the general public via our website and social media.”
Ryan Thomas, Solotech’s UK Sales Manager adds: “Being able to offer training really enhances our sales offering. As a company, we are committed to L-Acoustics as a brand, and this is a clear indication that we want to take this relationship to the next level.”
“Solotech UK’s extensive experience as a trusted partner gives their team the expertise to share that knowledge with the professional sound community throughout the UK,” says Etienne Corteel, Director of Education & Scientific Outreach at L-Acoustics. “The excellent team of Solotech’s Authorised Training Centre will ensure that more engineers make the best use of their L-Acoustics knowledge by always being up to date with the latest in our technology. Solotech UK’s educational outreach will boost the industry as we restart live events, kickstart careers and most importantly, continue to ensure L-Acoustics clients receive the utmost in service and support.”
