Beginning in September of this year, systems integrator Media Group International will open its Training Academy in Dubai to help broadcast professionals bridge the gap between traditional broadcast infrastructure and IT.
Headed by Training Manager Joe MacQuarrie, an official ACSR Trainer who joined MGI from Avid Technology Europe, the MGI Training Academy will provide the Middle East broadcast industry with a this educational opportunity. The facility will give broadcast professionals and engineers who enroll access to new courses that focus on technical and operational systems and highlight how to use new technology in the most efficient way.
Based in Studio City, the MGI Training Academy includes classrooms; a student lounge; a central apparatus room; a visualization, pre-build, testing and acceptance area for projects; and two multi-use conference/training rooms.
The courses will encompass Project Related Technical Training for existing customers and public courses. Bespoke workflow design, training and consultancy are also included in MGI’s approach, with courses provided either at the academy or on location at a facility.
The academy is also working with the International Association of Broadcast Manufacturers to deliver its foundational courses, as well as offering authorized training for many different manufacturers in the broadcast industry.
