The Engineering 201 Academy is for prior AND NEW attendees. It is also a great refresher course for seasoned technical professionals.

The morning session will cover items that are common to Radio and Television operations. It will include proper EAS operations, current FCC rules and regulations, review of the Online Public Files and the Alternative Broadcast Inspection Program (ABIP).
