IABM Announce Online Training Sessions

News Image
A new virtual curriculum has been introduced by the International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers (IABM) Training Academy.

The "virtual classroom", expected to be launched in late spring, will feature online versions of existing classroom courses, along with new material developed specifically for the online programme.

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.

"We have developed our course portfolio to reflect the needs of the entire broadcast industry. We work with all areas of the market to identify skills gaps and use experts in those relevant fields to design and deliver training that will address any outstanding needs."

The IABM Training Academy offers 17 different classroom-based courses looking at a areas such as streaming video across IP networks and broadcast technology workflows. Last year saw the announcement of three new partnerships, with Zoom Training, RealCom Broadcast and the Technology Academy. Further enhancements to the training schedule in 2015 will see the launch of a new workshop on HEVC and the introduction of shorter sessions.

Mr Warner added: "While businesses recognise the importance of training in our industry, one of the challenges we have found is companies being able to release staff to attend training courses. The virtual programme provides an alternative option and we are also looking at making some of our classroom-based training programmes more modularised, for example dividing a two day course into three or four shorter sessions. This is a pivotal year for the academy which will see us become truly global with more training opportunities in the classroom, on-site and online."
