SBE creates curriculum guide for schools
The Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) has developed a suggested curriculum for use by post-secondary schools that wish to offer a broadcast engineering curriculum. The curriculum is designed so that schools that follow its guidelines will provide a baseline education to students who wish to pursue a career in broadcast engineering.
One of the objectives of the SBE Certification Program is to encourage broadcast engineers to continue their professional development and remain current with the state-of-the-art equipment. With dramatic changes that have taken place in the industry in recent years, it has become even more important to understand emerging technologies and how they can benefit broadcasters.
Schools interested in obtaining a copy of the sample curriculum may contact Linda Baun, certification director, at the SBE National Office in Indianapolis at 317-846-9000.
