IABM To Provide Training Sessions At NAB 2015

News Image
At this year's NAB 2015, IABM has said it is to take its training sessions out of the classroom and on to the show floor.

For the first time, attendees to the show will be able to book one of the courses and experience the range of training options offered by IABM.

Delivered through the team at IABM Training Academy, the topical courses include subjects at the forefront of the industry agenda, with sessions on Broadcast Technology Workflows and Understanding File Formats, which will take place prior to the exhibition opening.

The session on Broadcast Technology Workflows will address changing customer requirements as a result of the demand for automation of services in the future, and will give attendees a solid platform for understanding the topic. Understanding File Formats will delve into explained current video and audio file formats, as well as their associated metadata and workflows.

The shortage for training in the broadcast and media sector has been well documented and the IABM training programme has become a valuable resource across the industry.

The IABM Training Academy is expanding rapidly and is delivering its programmes all over the world to address the increased need for broadcast-related education.

In addition to these new 'at show' training sessions, the organisation is planning further developments for 2015 and will launch a series of online courses later in the year.

Steve Warner, Training Manager, IABM said: "There is a clear appetite for broadcast training and in an industry that is going through such transformational and technological changes, the demand will continue to rise. We have deliberately selected topics that we know will provide valuable and topical knowledge to the industry.

"We also understand that not everybody has the ability to take time out of the office to attend courses – which is why we have decided to transport the sessions to the audience at NAB 2015. It will bring an element of convenience and also enables visitors to truly optimise their NAB experience."

The courses will run 11-12 April, starting at 9.00am. IABM is offering exclusive show rates with the cost of each course $500 for IABM members, $550 for NAB associate members and $600 for non-members.

Further information, as well as how to register for the event, can be found via the IABM website.
