IABM To Launch Virtual Curriculum Online

News Image
IABM Training Academy is to launch a virtual curriculum online.

The virtual classroom, which is expected to be launched via IABM's website in late spring, will include online versions of the existing classroom courses, and brand new material that is being developed specifically for the online programme and will be ready by the end of 2015.

Steve Warner, Training Manager, IABM said: "The focus this year is on expansion and regionalisation and the entire website is being developed to provide configurable and customisable interfaces with more local content. As part of this globalisation strategy, the Training Academy will also be delivering its courses to a worldwide audience through the new virtual facility."

Hundreds of people from across the industry have attended the renowned IABM training courses since the academy was launched in 2011, gaining valuable knowledge and skills that are essential in the rapidly changing global media business. The academy has also delivered a number of successful training modules outside of the UK, in South Africa, Singapore, and Germany.

IABM Training Academy currently offers 17 different classroom-based courses looking at a range of areas, from the protocols of streaming video across IP networks, to broadcast technology workflows. Last year also saw the announcement of three new partnerships, with Zoom Training, RealCom Broadcast and the Technology Academy, which have further increased the extensive educational portfolio. New courses include more broadcast specific training, broader technology courses and a range of non-technical courses to meet the demands of the sector.

In addition to the new virtual classroom, further enhancements to the training schedule in 2015 will see the launch of a new workshop on HEVC and the introduction of shorter sessions.
