The big question is how do you get the training and experience necessary to land that first job? This workshop will present the latest work of the IASIG (Interactive Audio Special Interest Group) and local education institutions to develop standardized school curriculums for games and interactive audio. Programs are springing up all over the world, and this panel will provide the big overview of what training is available now and what is coming in the future. From single overview classes, associate degree programs to a full four year university study we will preview the skill sets and templates that are desired and the recommended path for getting that position on the audio team."
