Course Description

How do you judge whether or not a course is worth taking? Could it be because it's full of interesting, current, engaging materials with unique and priceless insights from experienced industry professional instructors; maybe it looks like a lot of fun and a chance to meet the proverbial 'like-minded people'; does it have peerless and state-of-the-art facilities? Of all the reasons to put your faith in a course, surely the most enticing is the success of the graduates who came before you? Point Blank's radio course has given rise to literally hundreds of radio professionals: it's not unusual for the majority of a class to find employment in the radio industry, aided by our regular visits to top radio stations. Our alumni includes Gemma Cairney (Radio One, Channel 4), Monki (Rinse FM, Radio One, 1Xtra), Josh Dowler (Radio One), Madam X (1Xtra), Mistajam (Radio One) and many more. Read more about them here. Students on this course use our newly installed Myriad systems, the number 1 playout system used in radio stations around the world.
