About Us, Page 2
Radio Connection has a reputation for having the finest alternative to traditional radio school, music production and film making schools in the entertainment media industry. Unlike any radio broadcasting school, students learn from successful mentors in real world situations including active radio broadcast stations, voice over sessions, working with real on-air djs and talk show hosts at actual on air radio stations as opposed to simulated classrooms where the pressures of client interaction and real deadlines do not exist. Applicants are screened and then re-screened by the mentors. What’s more, Radio Connection’s programs can be completed in approximately half the time of degrees obtained from other schools. No experience is required and students can start any time, as opposed to specific semesters, or they can take classes part time during night or weekend sessions, training around a current job.
Job placement statistics represent the percentage of students who graduated between May 1, 2013 and April 30, 2014 and found work related to their studies within six months of their graduation.
With corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, California, Radio Connection’s on-the-job training programs are not only successful in teaching students, but also in getting them a job in fields that are quite difficult to break into. Once courses are completed, job placements are typically high. The curriculums teach the ins-and-outs of the film, music and recording businesses, and through our learn by doing method of mentor apprentice (extern) instruction, placing over 72 percent of its graduates in industry jobs. Radio Connection graduates are in the right place at the right time with connections, and they continue to make names for themselves by working inside major media companies.
Radio Connection is an associate member of the National Broadcasters Association (NAB), The American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (AFTRA), and the Society for Professional Audio Recording Services (SPARS).
