“The [virtual] courses are led by highly experienced instructors, and combine all the advantages of a classroom course,” said Steve Warner, head of training, IABM. “Participants will have the ability to interact with other students, put their hand up to ask questions or even go into a break-out room for smaller group discussions.”

IABM is also offering the new e-learning course, ‘Understanding IP and File-based Delivery,’ which is currently in its final planning stages. This self-paced course is delivered through the Academy’s Learning Management System and consists of seven self-contained modules looking at the full spectrum of broadcast infrastructure.

Traditional classroom-based courses are also available, with courses scheduled to take place in Dubai, North America and Canada, running until the end of the year and incorporating the Academy’s full curriculum of classroom-based courses. IABM will also bring a new half-day workshop on HEVC standard to IBC 2015 in Amsterdam; full programs on HEVC will be scheduled in the U.K., APAC and North America following IBC 2015.
