For German audio engineers IMO the best available way to start would be
to visit the "Rundfunkschule" of the WDR.
If you go the way I was going, learning without getting graduations on a
paper, than find bailsmen and became member of the VDT or if you won't
become a member, at least have bailsmen, IOW get good connections (in
Germany we call it, the need of "Vitamin B").
Jumping into the shark tank without a learning curve and "Vitamin B" is
impossible. No, I'm mistaken, it's possible to jump into the shark tank,
but we can imagine what will happen, when doing this unarmed.

This alien language is very similar to German, so I understand that your
education is specialised. You did study audio engineering, before
working as an engineer ;).
All or at least most video and audio engineers of my age I personally
know, don't have a graduation on paper, but started as cable carrier.
I'm not sure, some might have learned at the Rundfunkschule, but they at
least did internships as cable carrier too. All I know are able to play
instruments, but I guess just some (perhaps none of them is/) are able
to read a score. In Germany reading scores only is needed for some jobs
as audio engineer. I've seen well known audio engineers doing orchestra
recordings completely without reading a score them self, having an
assistant who read the score.
While it's not needed to have a graduation on a paper, it IMO is better
to have it, but it usually don't protect against cable carrying.
