Knowledge is power, and at Q3 Media Training we believe to make good decisions people should be fully informed. That’s why we are passionate about education.

We can provide formal training sessions on a range of topics, specialising in broadcast technology and workflows. We also assist software and hardware manufacturers to deliver system specific training in English across the UK and Europe. And of course, we are always happy to design new sessions or customise content to focus on the specific needs of each customer.

Training can be provided on-premise or we can arrange suitable conference venues, allowing us to tailor sessions to specific customer requirements and timing.

We believe training should be fun and endeavour to make sessions interactive. We also aim to avoid ‘death by PowerPoint’. Based on the old adage ‘a picture can paint a thousand words’ we believe a good animation or video can significantly increase understanding so we put a lot of effort into course preparation to ensure we make the most effective use of the time we have.

Tailored Technology Training

All training courses described on this site can be tailored to create sessions perfectly suited to any requirements. Our team of training specialists work with customers to understand potential trainees and what level of knowledge and skills they require to be effective in their roles.

Our Technical Director, Ed Calverley, leads most training sessions but we can also call upon a range of associates when different knowledge or skills are needed. Ed worked for 3 years at the BBC’s Engineering Training department (Wood Norton, near Evesham in Worcestershire) where he was involved in many sessions educating the next generation of Broadcast Engineers in topics such as Video Fundamentals, Compression, Display Technologies, Networking and much more. Residential courses at Wood Norton also included many hands-on sessions so Ed learned first-hand the importance of such activities to ensure new concepts are understood and retained.

Throughout his career, Ed has continued to educate through training sessions, presentations, and writing of technical papers and articles.
