Class on Demand Partners with NABET-CWA to Extend Branded Online Training to Members
New Collaboration Bolsters Accessibility of Continued Training for Broadcast and Post-Production Professionals
The portal, which is currently in the beta stage, will be offered for a small fee to all NABET-CWA members as part of their union membership. NABET-CWA members only need to create an account to access the entire Class on Demand course catalog, including training produced by Class on Demand’s strategic partners. As new titles are introduced to the website, these will be instantly available to NABET-CWA members through the portal as well. Users can access the training from work or home, at any hour of the day.
“NABET-CWA is very pleased to begin our new partnership with Class on Demand,” says Charlie Braico, sector vice president, NABET-CWA. “We are excited to begin the development phase of these fresh training resources and look forward to introducing these new instructional tools to our members. We expect a full rollout of the custom training portfolio in early 2012.”
As part of the new customized portal, NABET-CWA leaders can generate reports on the training service and members’ progress on a national, local or individual basis. Members can also work toward certification in individual programs and technologies, receiving a Certificate of Completion and Merit for completing a training course by answering questions at a pre-determined accuracy level.
“As digital and information technology have become part and parcel of virtually every aspect of the broadcast and post-production facility, it is more important than ever that workers in these fields keep abreast of the latest technological advances,” says Paul Holtz, founder and CEO, Class on Demand. “Knowing how to use the latest editing, graphics, or Web development software, for example, is increasingly making the difference between whether someone is hired for a broadcast or post job, or passed over completely. We applaud NABET-CWA for recognizing the importance of this by working with us to create the online training portal for their membership.”
