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, especially in the developing world and countries in transition.
