“This underscores the importance of training for Mass Communication practitioners. You cannot achieve excellence in any field of endeavour without adequate training.

“Training therefore simply means equipping yourself with basic tools of knowledge or skill-sets needed to perform the task at hand.

“It could be through structured learning, as is seen in informal education institutions or hands-on or mentoring by a professional, like on the job, in-house), Internship or others, to gain professional experience. It could also be through e-learning, workshops, seminars, etc.”
