January 4, 2006 at 11:44 AM (PT)
In other HD RADIO news, iBIQUITY DIGITAL, the sole developer of HD RADIO technology, announced today that it has partnered with CREATIVE CHANNEL SERVICES’ cyberscholar.com to launch a training program designed to educate retail sales professionals on the benefits of HD RADIO. The program, called "HD RADIO UNIVERSITY," is free and requires only a one-time registration at www.hdradiouniversity.com, starting at the end of JANUARY.
HD RADIO UNIVERSITY will offer retailers two levels of achievement: an associate’s degree and a bachelor’s degree. Each degree will require participation in 20 minutes of training (broken into two 10-minute sessions), with quizzes at the end of each session. Later in 2006, a third 20-minute unit may be added to create a master’s degree level that incorporates the more technical aspects of the HD RADIO digital broadcasting system.
