Course Description

Become a versatile and skilled worker in the entertainment industry. You love live events but you don't want to be the centre of attention. You'd like to spend your career behind the scenes in theatres, at music concerts, festivals, major sporting events and at corporate functions. You'll learn to work as a technician in the entertainment industry with special emphasis on the areas of lighting, sound and vision. This is a nationally recognised qualification designed by the industry. Course work is intensely practical. You will become involved in providing technical support for a range of "in-house" productions. While we expect students to get a broad range of skills there is also room for individual specialisation in areas of interest. At FedUni, we have fully-equipped theatres as well as digital and analogue sound studios, offline lighting editors, vision mixers, computers and full production facilities. You can take advantage of these throughout your classes. Once you graduate, you may like to keep studying for a Diploma, where you'll develop even more skills and confidence to manage teams at live events.
