What is Spot Training for broadcasters?

In the world of body-building, Spot Training means working your weak points to develop them. Every broadcast professional has the task of continually hoaning new skills, and with a busy schedule, it's easy for gaps to accumulate in one's knowledge-base. A few hours of Spot Training TM may be all you need to pump up the workflow again.

Or maybe you need more... The keyword in this type of broadcast training is Workflow. We start by looking at yours, and what you want to achieve within a given time-frame and budget. Strategies and training are then proposed, to facilitate and optimize your production. This can involve boosting performance with particaular software, and facilitating the interaction between production teams.

What's available?

Spot Training TM can help editors, graphists, animators, technical staff and producers in a fast-turnover, broadcast media and online environment. Services include contextual and in-depth training in APPLE, AVID and ADOBE software. We assist with migrations to new software platforms. We can also propose you some excellent Motion Graphics solutions. For a free consultation, call Spot Training TM on 04 20 976 792 or send us an EMAIL detailing your needs.

How much does it cost?

If you want training in a particular program, we have a PRICE LIST for that, but the real Spot Training TM is by nature, bespoke, and therefore tailored to your entire working environment. It will vary according to the complexity of your workflows. The Spot Trainer or SPOT OPERATOR is extremely flexible, and can negotiate her presense, services and support over long, short or intermittent periods.

Where do you get it?

You don't need to go anywhere. Spot Training TM comes to you, and is carried out on the spot ! It adapts entirely to your needs, and can include education, consultancy or assistance with challenging production tasks. Of course The Spot Operator not only teaches it but does it! Check out our SPOT POST PRODUCTION services.
