Fiji Sun - - World News -

Apia: An on­line train­ing course for Pa­cific jour­nal­ists and me­dia oper­a­tors work­ing in the re­gion has been launched in Samoa. The Pasi­fika Me­dia As­so­ci­a­tion PasiMA, is the first me­dia or­gan­i­sa­tion to set up a jour­nal­ism on­line train­ing tool for the re­gion. The Pasi­fikaTrainer course was a five year project ac­cord­ing to the chair­man of PasiMA and edi­tor in chief of the Samoa Ob­server daily news­pa­per, Savea Sano Mal­ifa. The course is a ro­bust train­ing pro­gramme with mo­d­ules cov­er­ing a wide range of me­dia and jour­nal­ism top­ics, the course was de­signed to strengthen the ca­pac­ity of re­gional me­dia pro­fes­sion­als, pro­mote com­mu­nity me­dia, and build or­gan­i­sa­tional ca­pac­ity to de­liver on­line train­ing to a broad range of Pa­cific me­dia pro­fes­sion­als.

PasiMA was founded in 2010 by a group of news­pa­per own­ers who left the long-es­tab­lished Pa­cific Is­lands News As­so­ci­a­tion (PINA). It is head­quar­ted in Samoa. RNZI
