SHARJAH: Sharjah Media Training Centre (SMTC)– a subsidiary of the Sharjah Media Corporation (SMC) – recently concluded its second training programme under the ‘I Can’ initiative, targeting job seekers who successfully completed the programme in ‘Montage and Visual Effects’.

The programme participants, who completed 105 accredited training hours over the course of the training, were honoured at a graduation ceremony held last Thursday, which was attended by Hassan Yaqoub Al Mansouri, Director of Sharjah Radio at SMC, and Ismail Al Hosani, Director of Support Services at SMC.

The ‘I Can’ initiative was launched by SMTC in recognition of the Centre’s social and community responsibility to provide essential training and qualifications for job seekers in the media and audio-visual effects fields and give them a head start in their careers.

“Through these programmes, the Sharjah Media Training Centre – following the directives of  Mohammed Hasan Khalaf, General Director of SMC – reaffirms its social commitment and responsibility to foster and develop the skills of the next generation of media professionals. These programmes ensure that the local media industry evolves in line with the technology that increases production values on an almost daily basis,” said Hussein Shaheen, Director of SMTC.

“Montage and visual effects is a vibrant arena that requires artistic creativity, along with theoretical and practical knowledge in order to implement projects professionally and efficiently. Participants enrolled in these courses must not only have an artistic flair, they must also show their ability to adapt and innovate. With this training, we are investing in the next generation of media expertise and believe the participants will be rewarded with a genuine advantage in the region’s fiercely competitive media labour market,” he added.

The first programme under the ‘I Can’ initiative concluded in May 2017, where the first batch of gradates successfully completed a three-week ‘TV Production and Anchoring’ training course, with 105 accredited training hours.

The initiative features five specialised training courses: TV production and anchoring; digital photography; montage and visual effects; digital media; TV and cinema photography and direction.Participants who successfully complete the courses are offered professional qualification certificates from the Sharjah Media Training Centre.

The courses feature advanced methods and techniques adopted by key international media organisations, with a number of accredited training hours under the supervision of qualified experts. They provide diversified practical and theoretical learning, offering participants the opportunity to try different working environments and locations in the television and production industries, with practical exercises to ensure they make the most out of the training process.

Sharjah Media Training Centre was formed to increase media production values and provide the necessary skills to equip a new generation of media students, developing their creativity and strengthening both their knowledge and practice in a professional manner. This approach aims to provide the latest courses and workshops for students and fresh graduates under the supervision of highly qualified instructors and experts within an environment that facilitates optimum learning.
