Certificate III Screen and Media has taught me many valuable techniques for film studies: audio, live production, photography, and more. Continuing my media studies through the certificate has been hugely valuable for my career plan, as I hope to do further studies in sound engineering. The hands-on nature of the course also makes it fun and engaging.
