Since the inception of formal audio training, about 70 years ago, the audio industry has undergone enormous change. The range and style of audio educational courses now available is staggering. This paper poses a number of questions which it might be pertinent for educators and trainers to ask themselves, including the relative importance of education and training, the merits and disadvantages of university-based courses, links with the audio industry, and course content. It expresses some views of the author, and so is intended to be thought provoking, rather than a definitive description of what any particular course should be.
