A wide range of basic skills courses are available in studio use, recording, editing, programme making and presentation. Basic training provides participants with both skills and experience for radio. Courses are open to volunteers who would like to be part of the community radio organisation and students seeking a career in the media industry. Initial training consists of ten two-hour evening sessions, followed by further sessions for advanced training – which prepares participants for live broadcasting.
