Video Production and Broadcast Certificate (2502)

Our increasing dependence on broadcast television, film, and video as means of communication has helped to further the development of technology necessary for proper production. The advent of internet broadcasting and high capacity satellite transmissions has further increased the need for training in the techniques of communication. Lakeland’s Video Production and Broadcast certificate program, designed to provide hands-on training in the areas of broadcast, newsgathering, live performance, and video engineering for both broadcast and interactive media applications, helps prepare students to meet the needs of the video communications industry.
