SBE Entry Level Certifications – No Experience Required

December 3, 2015

Are you new to the broadcast engineering field?

There are four entry-level certifications that may appeal to you.

If you are a working operator who wishes to certify your skills and knowledge or if you wish to become certified as your entry into the world of broadcasting then the Certified Television Operator (CTO) or Certified Radio Operator (CRO) certification may be right for you.

SBE Certification is not an FCC requirement, but it is evidence of an individual’s qualifications to serve as an operator at a broadcast station and will be useful when seeking employment or career advancement. Many television and radio stations, as well as colleges and a couple of high schools in the country, use the operator books and certification as a requirement.

If the operator level of certification does not appeal to you then take a look at the Certified Broadcast Technologist or the Certified Broadcast Networking Technologist.

There are two ways that you can obtain the Certified Broadcast Technologist (CBT) certification; by holding a valid FCC General Radio Telephone or Amateur Extra license and meeting the service requirement or by passing the CBT exam.

The Certified Broadcast Networking Technologist (CBNT) is another certification that you may consider at anytime in your career. The CBNT was designed for persons who wish to demonstrate basic familiarity with networking hardware as utilized in business and audio/video applications in broadcast facilities.

For the above certifications there is no experience required.
Please visit the  SBE website or contact the Certification Director,   Megan Clappe, for more information.
