CUE30203 Certificate III Live Production, Theatre & Events

This qualification is designed to reflect the role of individuals who work in technical production areas and perform a range of skilled tasks using discretion and judgement, and who have the ability to select, adapt and transfer skills to different situations. Certificate III is generally accepted as the industry entry-level qualification.

This qualification is very flexible and designed to meet a broad range of industry needs. It reflects the need for multi-skilling but additionally offers specialised streams for specific job outcomes, (i.e. for audio, lighting, staging and vision).

The Certificate III course is delivered using a combination of processes through workshop-based projects, online training and a structured work environment. All skills are delivered via integration within the workplace or through simulated tasks throughout the course.  Links and associated partnerships with local businesses in the entertainment industry allow further opportunities for structured work experience programmes. These opportunities can also be undertaken within a student’s traineeship agreement.

Students must complete 11 units, including 4 core compulsory units. The course is delivered typically over a 12 month period, with a maximum period of 24 months. Students can complete the course within a shorter period if all criteria and competencies are fulfilled, including approximately 300 hours of combined study and live practical experience.
