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 25 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 and 24 hour rolling news channels. And now it's available as an online course in three manageable and inexpensive modules.
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 media strategies to help boost their financial and/or social capital.
Our more popular media relations workshops are run publicly (that is open to all comers) both online and face-to-face at venues across the UK. Others are are offered on demand and we ask you to add your name to a waiting list. All are available for in-house delivery - again online or face-to-face - which is cost effective if you've got more than a few people who need training with the added advantage that course content can be tailored to your specific organisational needs.
Our media training course 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and he'll set up a Zoom meeting.

"An excellent course that was very well presented by a trainer who was clearly experienced in his field and put his message across in a relaxed and good humoured manner. Thank you."
