“I just finished my first week as a master control operator. It is a major step up from my prior job. Your class gave me the knowledge and confidence to go for a new and bigger job.” – Joey Norris, MCO –  LIN Southeast Broadcast Hub, Mobile

Radio Broadcast Engineering and Television Broadcast Engineering courses are designed for those with minimal or no technical experience, but seasoned engineers have found it a great refresher and an opportunity to learn about new technology. We offer the opportunity to take the SBE certification exam at the end of the courses.

 ”I have picked up things about engineering over the past 13 years working at the station due to my own interest and realization that an engineer is not always available. I feel the ABA Academy helped advance my knowledge significantly.” – Maria Dudzak, KRBD-FM Ketchikan, Alaska

All courses are held at the ABA training center in Hoover. There is no cost to attend any of the classes or seminars. Should you desire to take the SBE certification exam there will be a fee for the test.

You are encouraged to take advantage of these great opportunities to continue your education in Broadcast Engineering. If you have others in your operation or someone you know would benefit, please let them know about the Academy.

“Although my background is in television, the radio applications that were taught in the class were very interesting to me as well. I thought the instructor did a fine job in presenting the materials of the class in an easy to understand way.” – Daniel Black, TD – ABC 33/40, Birmingham


For more information contact Larry Wilkins, Academy Director.

I am impressed with the progressive efforts of the ABA leadership and equally impressed with the Academy program that Larry Wilkins has created in Broadcast Engineering. He has developed impressive curriculum content that address radio and TV broadcast engineering in separate course offerings. The ABA has provided dedicated classroom space for the program and manufacturers have been generous with equipment to provide the hands-on aspects.” – Wayne Pecena, guest instructor, ‘IP Fundamentals for Broadcasters’
