News Image
As part of the IABM Training Academy's global expansion plans, a formal partnership has been agreed with a leading Malaysian Direct Broadcast Satellite Pay TV service provider. The partnership will see the broadcaster roll out the IABM training programme offering courses as a key part of its curriculum from its headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

Specialist instructors from the IABM Training Academy will deliver the initial part of the 'Train the Trainer' programme. The broadcasters own instructors will then use the acquired knowledge and expertise to teach three IABM courses this year, with a further four courses planned for 2016.

The first round of courses will include 'Audio and Video Fundamentals for Engineers', 'Compression Fundamentals and Applications' and 'Network Essentials for Broadcast Engineers'. The courses will be delivered in Singapore from the 11th to 14th August. Attendance will be open for IABM Members and non-Member companies.

Peter Bruce, Director of APAC, IABM says: "Since we first launched the IABM Training Academy one of our aims was to take our courses to more diverse geographical areas and we are delighted to have formed this partnership in Malaysia and start to roll out training across the region.

"Our partner really values the importance of specific industry education and already offers a prestigious Broadcast Traineeship scheme to its new entrants. The partnership will enable them to broaden their scope even further and tap into the training needs that really matter in that market."
