Work in progress

50+ years of experience

RNTC was set up over 50 years ago in 1968 as a joint initiative of RNW Media (formerly Radio Netherlands Worldwide) and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 

RNTC gained invaluable expertise in delivering accredited courses, and in the role media can play in society.


Where we work 

RNTC is active across the globe. In-house courses from one to three weeks are offered at the training centre in the Netherlands, but we offer all our courses also online. 

We have strong partnerships with local media training institutes, and tailored courses are offered around the world at a location of the client’s choice or through online format.
