Those in this position must ensure that equipment provided for a meeting or event suits both the type of event and the physical space needed for it. If they work directly for the facility, they may also ensure that proper personnel are provided to set up and operate the equipment.
Supervisors who work for dedicated service providers must ensure that their equipment is in good working condition and delivered in a timely manner. If an operator is required or requested, they will ensure that the assigned personnel is trained and able to operate the equipment as needed. They also ensure that equipment is picked up in a timely manner and cleaned and properly stored for future use.
Because equipment breakdowns do happen, it is important for audio/visual supervisors to ensure the proper handling and maintenance of all equipment under their responsibility. They may also arrange repairs as necessary or provide capital bids for new or replacement equipment. Most in this position work in office and gear shop environments; while some employers prefer applicants who have associate's degrees, practical experience and familiarity with visual and sound equipment are of the utmost importance in this position.
