About this course

This practical, hands-on program provides you with studio, lab and live venue based training, through state-of-the-art facilities and industry-connected instructors.

The sound production program suite is made up of two years of study, with each year being an individual, nationally recognised qualification.

You will start your journey in the Diploma and, upon successful completion, continue in the Advanced Diploma. In the Diploma, you will be provided with the foundation skills and knowledge required for further study and a career in audio technology.

In the Advanced Diploma stage of the program, you will build on the core skills and knowledge attained in the Diploma year, and implement them on large-scale projects. Projects include live event productions at commercial venues, live sound reinforcement, and event recording and surround sound mixing. These projects will allow you to work directly with practicing industry professionals on award winning projects.

The Advanced Diploma will develop your skills and knowledge in sound design, post-production, broadcast audio and audio networking protocols, expanding your range of audio production skills to better prepare you for the range of industries available in sound production.
