We know an awful lot about acoustics, but always want to learn more. Professional development isn’t a chore when you have this attitude. Developments in the instrumentation, software and techniques we use to do our work are only half the story, we need to keep pace with the continuously evolving environment in which we’re doing it.
That includes changes in guidance and legislation, new noise control and construction techniques and materials, and new noise sources like fracking and drones. We are very actively involved in our academic (IOA) and trade (ANC) associations, and generally a bit more into it than is probably healthy!
