Must be technically competent
Must be cool when problems arise during live events and be able to think logically through your set-up to isolate possible sources of the problem
Must remember that you are only as good as your last job!!!

These answers show the lack of experience people here have in the field. Most wanted skills for corporate A/V IT techs meaning staying at 1 or multiple buildings with high end A/V equipment such as Museums, Hotels, Casinos, and etc.

1.AMX and Crestron experience and programming.

2.Lighting - Lutron, DMX, and etc. DMX is very easy to program takes maybe a month or two of constantly programming setting up to learn. Even then its pretty simple to learn on the job.

3.Electronic Repair, Maintenance, and Installation - You need to understand how to use a Meter. Ohm z is your main tool. These companies do not understand equipment needs clean. Knowing you have working spares, so on and so on. I can change out and repair most LCD, Plasmas, DLP, Projectors and etc in a matter of minutes taking it apart is the time consumer. The job by no means is easy and takes years of experience and constantly having your hands into the technology.

Live events are usually very simple. Large companies suchs as Markeys, Swank, and etc. have tons of spares. Rigging and Lighting is simple mind numbing work. So if you want serious answers on what you need to learn and to get your hand in the field. You do not need college. You need certifications and experience.

AMX/Crestron, Lutron, A+, MSCE, C+ programming experience, Binary, Network+, and know how to use a meter. Your ready to go just need the experience.
