In the 10 months since Studer launched StuderBroadcastAcademy.com, the online version of its Studer Broadcast Academy training course, it has amassed more than 1,000 participants across 90 countries.
According to Studer, a total of 170 engineers have completed the entire course and are now factory-certified. Of these 170 engineers, over 85% have opted to be listed on the Studer website in a searchable engineer database (used by companies and productions looking to employ Studer Vista engineers).
StuderBroadcastAcademy.com is an interactive online course for engineers to learn how to operate Studer’s Vista Series digital mixing consoles. The course consists of a series of modules which must be passed at 100% to officially certify as a Studer Vista Operator.
Katy Templeman-Holmes, associate director, recording & broadcast, says: “We launched StuderBroadcastAcademy.com in partnership with CRAS (Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences) in August 2013 and the program’s popularity has exceeded our high expectations. But we’re not stopping now. Later this year, we will introduce a new SBA module that will dig deeper into our Snapshots features!”
