RIGtrain courses are open to adults, ie 18 years or over, involved in radio production OR (depending on the course) interested in entering radio production.  If you are a new entrant to radio please see course details to see if you have the requisite background, and email the course organiser if you are still unsure.  Most of our courses, and some of our masterclasses, are aimed at raising the skills of people already working in radio production.

As the courses are proving very popular we have to limit each company to a maximum of TWO learners on any one course.  However there is currently no limit on the number of courses an individual can attend - it is first-come, first-served.

Where discounted tickets are shown, that price is available only to paid-up RIG member companies or associates (eg regular freelances) of those companies.  Everyone else who is eligible must pay full price.

RIGtrain masterclasses are a little more flexible, so we can accept people with less experience in radio production, particularly if they wish to move into radio from another medium or profession.  And there is no charge for masterclasses

CANCELLATION: please note that fees for masterclasses and 'Leaders' Forum' events are not refundable.  We WILL try and refund a cancelled place on a course, but only if that place is re-sold, because our budgets are extremely tight, and a single cancellation can make a course un-viable.  To cancel a place, please use the link on the email you got from Bookwhen at the time of booking AND IMPORTANTLY please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to alert us to the cancellation - the earlier you cancel the better, if you are hoping for a refund

(The previous wording on eligibility, where it was limited to residents of England, and excluded students in full-time higher or further education, no longer applies, as that was a condition of the grant aid we were receiving at that time.  Similarly the previous limit of a maximum of three courses per individual was set by our funder, and no longer applies)
