Over 3 weeks in May, 50 students from school-aged to adults visited the training centre to participate in Triple A Trainings’ annual Block Training to achieve competencies towards Certificate III & IV in Media and Broadcast Technology. Travelling from, Weipa, Kowanyama, Wujal Wujal, Hopevale, Palm Island, Townsville, Rockhampton, Cairns and Mount Isa, the mob participated in daily radio operations, on-air programs, editing, recording and mixing sound, wiring and video camera recording and editing.
The regional group went to Stylin’ Up and recorded interviews and video recording with performers and local Edlers to take back and play on their own radio stations. One group were lucky enough to be in the training centre at the same time Troy Cassar-Daley was visiting for an interview. Troy sat down and had chat with the group and shared some advice and encouragement of his own.
Overall there were 11 certificate II’s, 15 certificate III’s and 5 certificate IV’s awarded, another great ending to a round of Block Training.
