  • Objectives
    Available to students who demonstrate potential for, and wish to acquire expertise in the technical and production aspects of the entertainment industry. The program is structured to provide skills and experience consistent with the growing needs of the entertainment industry. Handling scenery, flying and general backstage skills of the mechanist are experienced and students are closely involved in the practical work of live production on a regular basis.

In the final year a period of external professional placement allows the student to gain further experience. Students enrolling are encouraged to develop the initiative and problem solving abilities needed in the production workshop. This VET course is offered by ECU as a Registered Training Organisation under the Australian Quality Training Framework.
