PMA Training

We provide a variety of workshops and training sessions in a selection of locations mainly in London but occasionally elsewhere.

Subjects range from legal issues such as compliance and music licensing to Health & Safety and tax issues. We also cover technical topics such 3D production and filming with file based formats.

Online videos of some sessions are available on the site for members to view.

Most training events are free to members or heavily subsidised. Co-ordinators on the list are also able to access these sessions.

In this 90 min session, PMA sponsor CTV will romp through the workings of setting up an outside broadcast from beginning to end. They will: 

  • demystify the terminology and enable you to understand the glossary of terms

  • make sure that you know what questions you will be asked by the OB company and what questions you need to be asking them

  • aim to make this as un-technical as possible and explain it all from a Production Manager and Production Co-ordinator's point of view.

So come and find out what it is you need to know, and even the stuff you didn't know you needed to know.

Cost: FREE to PMA members and £33 for everyone, payable to PMA, Co-operative Bank.  Sort Code: 08-92-99.  Account Number: 65213803 using your name as reference if possible.
