December 23, 2011
NABET-CWA partners with Class on Demand for training HOFFMAN ESTATES — Class on Demand, which provides educational products for the pro market has entered a partnership with the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians – Communications Workers of America (NABET-CWA), which represents more over 9,500 workers in broadcasting and related industries. 

NABET-CWA (www.nabetcwa.org) members will have access to Class on Demand’s entire catalog of online training materials. And as part of the agreement, Class on Demand (www.classondemand.net/media) is creating a NABET-CWA-branded customized online portal, where the trade union’s members can access the training and certification for tools used in broadcast and post.

The portal, which is currently in the beta stage, will be offered for a small fee, the amount will be announced in January, 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 anywhere at any time.

Charlie Braico, sector VP, NABET-CWA, says, “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.
