We offer a range of courses to help you get the most out of your dealings with the media whether you’re appearing on radio or television, in print or online, live or pre-recorded.
Our broadcasting media workshop to help people stay in control of the message was the first course we delivered when we started ACM Training more than 28 years ago and it’s still just as popular today although naturally it’s evolved to reflect the dramatic changes there have been in the media landscape such as the social web, 24 hour rolling news channels and, of course Covid-19.
We’re highly experienced at helping organisations handle the media in both good times and bad and our client list reflects this. We train the emergency services, universities, the NHS, government departments and local authorities in crisis communications and regularly contribute to multi-agency emergency planning exercises by providing highly realistic simulated broadcast and social media input through our socialmediatestbed.com service.
And we’re just as keen to help smaller organisations - particularly in the voluntary sector - craft news releases to spread the good news or draw up social media strategies to help boost their financial and/or social capital.
Like all our courses they can be delivered in a variety of ways from inexpensive, self-guided online modules, through to trainer-led sessions either just for you or with other learners in a public or private group delivered online or in-person.
Our media training courses are facilitated by Richard Uridge. If you'd like to talk to your trainer for a no-obligation chat to discuss our general approach or learn more about a particular course and its aims and objectives email email@example.com and he'll set up a Zoom meeting.

"An excellent training session, very well run and very engaging. I would go as far as to say probably the best training session I have ever been on."
