SBE Certified Schools

One objectives of the SBE Certification Program is to encourage broadcast engineers to continue their professional development. The growth of professional status of the entire industry is one of our major goals. The continuing education of broadcast engineers is necessary to remain current with the state of the art. With recent changes in the nature of the industry itself, it has become necessary to understand the emerging technologies and understand the way in which we can be of substantial benefit to our employers.

There are many ways to increase your knowledge, from local chapter meetings, to schools in your area, to regional and national conferences. SBE has long recognized that training is one of its primary missions.

Following is a list of technical schools offering broadcast and broadcast related training. These have been identified by the SBE National Certification Committee from information that has been gathered from our chapters.


Please feel free to recommend other courses and or technical schools by submitting them to Certification Director Megan Clappe at mclappe@sbe.org.
