Take the guesswork and risks out of PAVA and sound engineering…
Without paying for expensive and misleading training
PAVA training for fire and security contractors is hard to find. PAVA manufacturers offer a type of training which has its place, but it is largely about influencing you to believe their kit is best. Manufacturers don’t have time or often the skills to explain the essentials of Public Address and Voice Alarm, acoustics, commissioning and maintenance.
Sitting in a classroom means you lose your techs from doing chargeable work
Then there’s the cost of that training, making it an expensive double loss. If manufacturer training was relevant it would help. Your techs aren’t stupid; they know what’s relevant and important to their site work and apart from the attendance certificate it’s of little use. We know because we do all manufacturer training and whilst we like those nerdy Class D amplifier details, there’s little about sound and PAVA engineering.
This adds to the PAVA black-art myth, and limits your profit opportunities
We all remember more when we learn as part of doing and it’s more enjoyable. That’s why we work alongside your field techs, 1 to 1. That means your techs learn sound engineering field craft step by step in real world situations. We then dig out issues with the system that you quote to mend. For those wanting to learn more our master classes delve deeper in to site relevant PAVA and sound engineering on design, commissioning and maintenance.
Now developing your PAVA skill isn’t an expense but a money maker
Working on-site together your clients see you delivering high quality PAVA support, with confident knowledgeable techs. Also, our combined expertise gets system’s fixed faster, because between us we can fully diagnose problems. Once you know exactly what’s wrong you can quote with confidence (we’ll even write the quote for you), certain that those repairs will deliver your client value and you profit.
It’s cheaper to earn from existing clients than to win new ones
Our fire and security partners take over sites where an outgoing contractor has been slammed by the client. Within weeks, we (our contractor partner and ProAudium) have improved the voice evacuation system. The delighted end user then gives them more profitable work and not just for PAVA.
This is not because ProAudium are more skilled
We just know sound & PAVA intimately. We attend the dull manufacturer training courses, which we actually find interesting (sad but true). We use advanced audio test and measurement equipment, which isn’t cheap and is confusing to use until you’ve played with it for a while.
You’re then free to focus on business growth rather than adding staff
Adding staff is expensive and time intensive. So, to grow the painful choice is either to get the work then find the staff or employ the staff then find the work. Both are a big gamble, but you remove that risk by teaming up with ProAudium. Our costs are fully covered by the income you generate: you’ll make more profit and start growing your satisfied client base.

Teaming up with ProAudium gives you access to unbiased expertise across system design, acoustics, installation, commissioning and maintenance that will enable you to tackle any PAVA or sound system in any venue of any size, profitably.
Here’s how to get in touch
Call or email (01273 034630 or PAVAsupport@proaudium.com), if you call, you’ll speak with Nigel, Sarah or Nicky.
If you want us to help with an existing system, then we’ll ask a few questions about the system and what you need us to do. It’s helpful if you can send us photographs of the system, particularly the central equipment. If that’s in a rack, then photos of the back and front would be perfect.
For site work we can arrange to send one person to work with one of your techs or we can send one or two techs and do everything for you. If you can send us your corporate clothing, we’ll wear them and if you send us your work sheets, we’ll fill them in too. We’ll even sign in as your company.
Take the next step to becoming a PAVA pro
If you are looking to send your techs on one of our masterclass training courses, please fill in the form below. We’ll email you about them a few days before we open applications to everyone. Plus, those on the email list get an extra discount.
What aspects of PAVA can we help you with?
- Acoustic modelling
- System checks and dilapidation reports
- FAT and SAT technical lead
- System design including writing specifications
- Tender reviews
- System builds
- Second or third line call out support
PS. We can work for you worldwide, but we doubt you’d pay our travel costs. So, in reality we tend to work in southern UK.
