Radio 4EB Training Sessions

 

 

Since community radio focuses on issues relating to education, health, environment, agriculture, rural and community development, the advantage of this medium as an effective tool for empowerment of weaker section of the communities is enormous.

Radio 4EB 98.1 FM team is committed to raising the standards of air-services and provides training sessions for all new members and prospective new broadcasters. And one of sessions is Indian radio 4EB Broadcast/Induction training. It's the first step in becoming involved in 4EB Programs.

This course is designed to cover all aspects of announcing and technical skills to be able to present air programs on 4EB Radio.

Radio 4EB Panel Training

The Radio Panel Training course is available to all Radio 4EB members who are already involved in broadcasting programs. This is a great opportunity to become further involved in your own language group or one of our many youth groups on-air. This is a hands-on highly practical course in panel operation and you will be learning a real skill. The training is delivered in a supportive learning environment and could be a pathway towards a career in the media industry.

Radio 4EB 98.1 FM conducts Radio Panel courses every 8 weeks on Monday evenings and Thursday afternoons. All applicants must hold a current Broadcaster's licence and be a financial member of 4EB and all applications will need group convenor approval..

During the course all panel trainees are expected to complete between 3 - 4 hours of studio practice before being able to sit for their practical and written test which normally occurs in the final week or more importantly when you are confident and ready. The practical test involves being able to operate the panel while following a running sheet.

The seven (7) week course is conducted in the studios of Radio 4EB and GLOBAL Digital.
