Course Outline

Western Academy Broadcasting College offers a one-year college program in Radio & Television broadcast training, featuring contemporary Canadian & American broadcasting style, with a 90%+ job placement rate.

This ACCELERATED program offers 2 years worth of training in one year, resulting in much lower tuition and faster job placement. While some schools require students to spend the first year in the classroom studying non-broadcast academics, Western Academy gets right to the business of broadcasting.

Starting the very first day of school, students spend several hours daily behind the microphone in professional radio studios, & several sessions every week in the television studio. Every school day is filled with hands-on practical training, just as if you were really a staff member of a radio and television station, (plus additional daily classroom time and lab sessions).

That is the Western Academy advantage - you can be trained and ready for the broadcasting job market in only one school year! Over 1250 graduates have successfully acquired jobs in the professional broadcasting industry.
