The Certificate in Digital Imaging, a customised qualification run by JISC Digital Media to support the accredited development of digitisation staff who previously had little provision in the way of formal accreditation of their skills, has had a great first year.
It has been well received in the community and has seen 28 delegates in 5 cohorts successfully complete the 3 day fast track course. All 28 delegates, after successfully passing their assessments have gone on to be awarded the BTEC Certificate.
Delegates have come from across the entire digitisation community and include representatives from The British Library, National Archives, National Library of Ireland, National Library of Scotland, Tate Gallery, The National Gallery, and Keele University. as well as a whole host of others.
On completing the post course survey, delegates agreed 100% that the course was value for money and that they would recommend JISC Digital Media's Training to others. As one of our delegates put it:
"All the information was useful and it definitely expanded my knowledge - even in the areas I already had some experience… This course has contributed a great deal towards my personal development and is relevant to my institutions strategic objectives"
The fast track 3 day course, which is only run by JISC Digital Media is divided into three, one day self contained sessions covering digital capture, image optimisation and manipulation and image management (metadata and copyright). The sessions are supported with workbooks and pre-course reading to ensure that delegates are well supported for the assessment process.

- 21st -23rd January 2013
