Training at 5EBI

For over 30 years, we have been training South Australian broadcasters from all backgrounds and of all ages. We teach our volunteers everything they need to know so they can deliver radio programnmes of the highest quality for their community, no matter how inexperienced they may be.

Our courses cover all aspects of broadcasting at 5EBI – theoretical and hands-on – including Australian Media Law, national Community Radio Codes of Practice and 5EBI-specific policies, how to prepare and deliver radio programmes of a professional standard, how to operate all our equipment (including our state-of-the-art Elan 12-channel broadcast mixing desks) and in-house audio systems (including our tailor-made 5EBI Message Player), how to produce and present a live programme on your own or with others, as well as how to produce and edit a sleek pre-recorded radio show using computer software.

Training at 5EBI is tailor-made to suit individual needs and availability, from a one-off lesson to a three-week course with weekly lessons and autonomous, self-paced practice using our production studios, which trainees book at their convenience.

All our courses are open to anyone who wishes to increase their radio skills in a professional environment (some 5EBI training is compulsory for our volunteers):
