The ABA Engineering Academy has scheduled three informative technical classes for the 4th quarter.

First we will offer our Basic Radio Engineering class. This class is designed to help new comers and those interested in broadcast engineering an understanding of the technical side of Radio Broadcasting. We cover everything from basic electronics to the transmit antenna along with FCC rules and basic engineering duties. The Basic Radio Engineer class will be offered Monday October 2nd through Friday October 6th.

Then the week of the week of October 23rd we will offer the Basic Television Engineering class. As with the Radio Class we will cover basic electronics to transmit antenna. This class will also introduce to the students to the new ATSC 3.0 television system. Schedule for the Basic Television class is Monday October 23rd through Friday October 27th.

At each of those classes we will offer the opportunity for students to take the Society of Broadcast Engineers (SBE) Certification exam. It is not required to take the exam to attend the classes.

The week of November 27th we will offer our much requested Advanced Radio Engineering class. This class will go more in depth into equipment layout, installation, configuration and maintenance. Several engineers from major equipment vendors will be on hand to cover items such as proper transmitter installation, Audio over IP (AoIP), understanding the digital audio workstation (DAW) and much more. This class is scheduled for Monday November 27th through Friday December 1st.
