The SBE provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and the sharing of information to help you keep pace with our rapidly changing industry. The SBE amplifies the voices of broadcast engineers by validating your skills with professional certification and by offering educational opportunities to maintain and expand those skills. In addition, the national SBE speaks out on technical regulatory issues that affect how we all work in today’s broadcast environment. All this adds up to keeping you at the top of your field, enhancing your value to your employer, or if you are self-employed, preparing you to meet the changing needs of your clients. Increasingly, TV and Radio station and engineering managers look for SBE Certification as a excellent start in the hiring and promotion process.
