Hello Everyone Thanks in advance. Im currently Working as an Assistant Editor at a Broadcast company. Im hoping to change roles and become a Engineer, I have a technical background, but not in Broadcast environment. I Know Im Going to require getting IT Training and Cisco Training and Most Likely ACSR Training. My Question is go for a Computer Science degree or take some training classes for IT and Cisco, or a Broadcast School if there is such a thing. If you have a suggestion or better idea, please let me know. Thanks

I think you're making a wise choice. It's difficult to find quality engineers.

NEP is the top producer of broadcast engineers in the U.S. They have an apprentice program if you're interested.

Fair warning. Working on a OB truck in a live sports environment is about as stressful as it gets. A lot of engineers burn out because of the intensity of the job. If you can handle working on a OB truck you can handle just about anything.

Check out the Society of Broadcast Engineers (sbe.org). There is a wealth of information on many levels of certification in the broadcast business, both for video/audio and IT. All the engineers here (including myself) are SBE certified. Good way to learn and get into the business.

The Cleveland Institute offers a Broadcast Engineering correspondence course that may offer what you’re looking for. It’s quite intensive, covering many topics that affect a broadcast engineer.
