The Community Broadcasting Assocation of Australia has introduced CBAA Learning, a new e-learning resource for stations in the community broadcasting sector.
The goal of the platform is to build upon the CBAA Resource Library, providing guidance, information, videos and downloadable templates to help community radio stations thrive.
The first course focuses on Emergency Broadcasting. Designed for station managers, volunteers and broadcasters, the course comprises five modules:
- Module One will help you find the right resources to put together your emergency broadcast plan.
- Module Two will get you thinking about what sort of ‘emergency broadcast’ station you want to be.
- Modules Three and Four are targeted toward on-air broadcasters – providing an understanding of how messages are constructed, what sort of information they should contain, and when to broadcast them.
- Module Five offers some insights into the mental challenges and coping strategies for broadcasters and stations involved in emergency broadcasting.
- The first module, Emergency Broadcasting #1 – Are You Prepared? is now live, with a new module released every Tuesday over the next four weeks.
Upon completing all five modules, participants will receive a CBAA Learning Certificate of Completion in Emergency Broadcasting.
New resources will be uploaded to CBAA Learning regularly, so please continue to check back and sign up for new courses.
We’re also keen to hear your feedback on our content. Please don’t hesitate to contact us and share your thoughts, or let us know what courses you’d like to see in the future.
