AIBD-MRTV4 Training Workshops

Through AIBD’s arrangement, Forever Group in Myanmar and MRTV-4 have received various trainings and workshops concerning with different broadcasting fields in the past few years and have trained skillful employees and trainees for the organization.

At the beginning of January 2012, Myanmar Media Development Center (MMDC) under Forever Group launched the "Taste of TV" one-month course, for those who are interested in the broadcast media industry. The first batch was held from 16 January to 22 February 2012, with the assistance of Deutsche Welle Akademie.

Mr. Omar Salleh, a senior cameraman and Director of Photography from Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) conducted "Taste of TV" training for the second batch, which was held from 20 February to 22 March where he taught for five days. Within five days, he trained the students about the camera through practical sessions and also participated in the process of giving comments and suggestions for each student’s group projects. There were a total of 51 trainees that attended the second batch.

Mr. Omar also conducted a training workshop for MRTV- 4 camera crews to achieve better quality TV production. The workshop was held from 9 to 20 January, 2012 and there were 19 participants from Production, News as well as Sports Department. The training empowered theoretical and practical skills for camera persons from MRTV- 4.

Another workshop, "The First Step for Change Training" was held from 2 to 6 March 2012. There were 11 participants from Sport and News department. The objective for this training was to guide and motivate participants into taking the first step of change for news and to be responsible journalists. All the participants were entertained and educated with Mr. Omar's experiences and knowledge.

The next training was one-day training for 11 camera crews from Production Department. Because of the short period, he could only teach basic knowledge of camera and motivation for the camera men. Even though it was a short training, the participants came to understand about using camera and the motivation.

Mr. Omar taught them with a sense of humor and through his own experiences and staff at MRTV-4 learned more new technical skills that they could utilize in their field.
