NAB Education Foundation Launches Technology Apprenticeship Program.

NAB Education Foundation Launches Technology Apprenticeship Program.

NABEF will debut a six-month Technology Apprenticeship Program designed to expose ten high-tech graduates and professionals to the broadcast industry. Program highlights include a two month, hands-on apprenticeship at a radio or television station, as well as completion of a three-day training program located at a major technology manufacturer. The application deadline is March 11th.

"Combining exposure to new technology trends with the benefits of an interactive learning environment is ideal for attracting the brightest high-tech minds to our industry," said NABEF President Marcellus Alexander. "We are looking forward to a successful launch and a well-rounded educational experience for all participants."

In addition to the apprenticeship and training program, TAP participants will receive free admittance to the NAB Show, where the latest technological advances will be highlighted during several scheduled TAP training sessions, as well as admission to the Radio Ink Convergence conference held on the Silicon Valley campus of Microsoft, featuring a private networking session with apprentices and a high profile technology executive. TAP students will also participate in an informational webinar featuring experts from the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) and Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE), and will wrap up their training at NAB headquarters with additional instruction from the NAB Science and Technology department and a final webcast presentation assignment.

TAP is open to college and technical school seniors, recent graduates and individuals seeking to enter the broadcast industry. All applicants must have experience or training in IT, digital technologies, broadcast engineering or other related areas in order to be considered. For more information, click HERE
