The CMTO recently delivered the CUA31020 Certificate III in Screen and Media course to First Nations students from around the country, the first cohort to undertake our newly updated nationally recognised qualification.
The class, held over the 12 months, brought together students from 3KND (Melbourne, VIC), Cherbourg Radio (Cherbourg, QLD), and 4RR (Charleville, QLD).
This accredited course was predominantly delivered online by trainer Martin Corben.
Additionally, throughout the course, we were able to organise three face-to-face sessions where the students travelled to Wurundjeri Woi-wurrung and Bunurong Boon Wurrung land (Melbourne) for blocks of face-to-face sessions, generously hosted by Radio 3KND.
At the end of last year the students had their last class for the training portion of the course. These sessions were held via face-to-face training which was also held at 3KND.
This unique opportunity allowed students to not only meet, network, and share best practices from their respective stations, but also achieve a nationally recognised qualification.
“The biggest challenge is getting participants to try new things and be a little daring! I think we are planting seeds of creativity here, built on new knowledge and understanding. That said, everyone is giving it a go, as well as being enthusiastic and supportive of each other” - Martin Corben, Trainer
CMTO would like to congratulate these students for all of their hard work. We are very excited to see what they will accomplish next in community radio!
