Previous research polled employers, new hires, and educators in the audio industry to identify what skills were most important, what skills new hires had, and what skills educators focused on in Audio Recording Production (ARP) Programs. The Skills Students Learned (SSL) Survey used in this study, polled 40 students from the U.S. and aboard to identify skills learned at ARP programs. Students reported their skill level before and after attending a formal ARP program via an online mixed methods survey instrument. In the quantitative section, students reported an improvement in all skill levels upon completing their ARP training. In the qualitative section, students reported communication skills and in-depth technical skills missing from their programs and personal skill sets. This study recommends infusion of these skills into existing ARP curriculum.
