The training is a seal of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), signed by Olive School of Journalism and Hopin Academy at the School in July 2015 to train the students in those area. Hopin Academy are Specialists in Web Design and New Media Communication based in Tamale, the Northern Region of Ghana. Speaking to the Media in Tamale the Course Coordinator of Olive, Ayendago Charles explained that verboseness has become a thing of the past and edged media practitioners to always let images, audio and videos tell the story. He decried that in the 21st century some Journalists still write what he terms “he said, he said stories” and still expect audiences to buy into their stories.
The Principal of Olive, Alhassan Imoru, called on all professionals and Senior High Graduates who want to go into Journalism and Public Relations to enroll in the school for professional training. He allayed all fears and doubts people have about the school and revealed that the school has finished paying its affiliation fees and also meet the requirements required by the affiliate Institution for proper affiliation. The students he said will complete with credible certificate.

On his part, the Co-founder of Hopin Academy, MacCarthy Mac-gbathy, promised a professional training that will prepare the students to face the challenges of the century. He noted that Hopin Academy has been providing training and consultancy services to NGOs, Government Organisations, corporate bodies and individuals in Information Communication Technology (ICT) and expressed joy that Hopin Academy has entered into agreement with Olive School of Journalism.
