United Broadcast Training Academy
UBMS launched the United Broadcast Training Academy in Q3 of 2014 with the aim to provide professionals from the industry a convenient and professional location to attend certified workshops and training courses from various manufacturers & seasoned professionals from the industry. The workshops vary in theme and application but the intent is the same, which is to provide professionals a venue where they can learn skills and knowledge that can be beneficial to their careers and to the industry as a whole.
Revenue generation from the training academy is not a priority for UBMS, instead the main priority is to provide its customers with a value added service, which is why many of the workshops are free of charge. UBMS’ goal is to make people understand that when you deal with UBMS, not only do you get the best and latest products at competitive prices, and not only is there an authorized service center that can address any of your after sales service needs, but also UBMS invests in its clients development and growth because when its customers are successful, UBMS is successful.
