IABM Training Academy is building on the success of its highly rated classroom-based courses by introducing 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 courses, and brand new material that is being developed specifically for the programme.
“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,” states Steve Warner (pictured), training manager, IABM. “As part of this globalisation strategy, the Training Academy will also be delivering its courses to a worldwide audience through the new virtual facility.”
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.
