Practical assessment varies according to the nature of the practice – for example, CD recordings, although there will always be a substantial written component in the assessment.

For example, as sound engineers, post-production engineers, recording artists, studio managers, company directors, product developers, product demonstrators, producers, composers and re-mixers.
