This 1 day course is presented for a fixed price at your premises. The 1-day training plan has been put together to provide a cost effective way to address the often overlooked basics of the broadcast industry and its technology whilst also having a positive impact on staff morale by encouraging back-office/admin staff to be included in the initial session(s).
