Invest in yourself with Learning Wave's Radio Broadcasting Bootcamp

Always wanted to be involved in radio? Well this could be your chance to do just that! Instead of investing in a holiday this summer; invest in yourself from the 19th June – 14th July at Windmill Lane studios, Dublin, where Learning Waves will be hosting their annual Radio Broadcasting Bootcamp.

With 3 weeks of hands on training from industry professionals and a week of planning for and presenting a live one hour show for FRQ FM, you will be equipped with the knowledge and the confidence to enter the world of radio.

Over the three weeks, students will receive in depth information on the following:

  • Voice Training
  • Overview of RCS
  • Interacting with callers ‘live’ on air
  • Microphone Techniques
  • Production Techniques
  • CV’s and Demos
  • Operating the desk and studio best practice

This intense three week bootcamp will instil in the participants, an innate understanding of what is required in the radio industry today. It covers everything you need to know, from broadcasting laws, microphone and production techniques to having your CV up to date and ready for possible future employers.

Jason Collins from KFM, 8Radio and LMFM, upon completing the course said “A lot of people on our course said it was full on, intense and hard work but that’s exactly what’s needed to prepare you for working in Radio.”

A standout opportunity that the Radio Broadcasting Bootcamp also provides is the possibility of work placement in some of Ireland's top radio stations. Garrett Mullhall completed the course in 2016 and had this to say:

 “You cannot fathom the valuable knowledge, experience that was given to all of us on the Presenters Bootcamp. Having the top professionals from the Irish Radio Industry mentor you on a daily basis is the most valuable education that anyone could wish for!”

 “This is the best investment I’ve ever made in myself and my future career in Radio!”

Do what Garrett did, invest in yourself and your career, the holiday can wait!
