PD’s course goes international
Commercial Radio Australia has announced the Radio Program Directors course will be delivered internationally, through a partnership with the International Media Broadcasting Academy.
The 'PDs' course has been developed by CRA and delivered in Australia for over a decade at the Australian, Film, Television and Radio school.
IMBA CEO Steve Ahern, who was previously Director of Radio at AFTRS when the course was developed, commented 'this course is a path to a career in programming or management. It teaches the skills that lie behind successful staff leadership and programming theory'
Announcing the course at the Australian Broadcasting Summit in Sydney, CRA CEO Joan Warner said 'So many countries want to improve the quality of radio programming and management. We hope this course will help the radio industry in those countries and offer individuals the same level of personal career success as this course has given to Australian radio industry staff'.
There has been a range of highly respected Australian and International Program Directors enlisted to tutor course participants, including Craig Bruce, Peter Brennan, Duncan Campbell, Dan Bradley and Valerie Geller.
The international Radio Program Directors course will commence in March.
