/ Community Events / February 2018 Radio Training Course



Radio Training Classes run for eight consecutive weeks with 4 hour sessions held at the JOY studios on Bourke Street in Melbourne CBD. Dates are confirmed via email. The cost of the course: $400 JOY members / $490 non-members / there is one scholarship available in each class. Join or renew via our Secure online payment system

The purpose of the Radio Training Course is to encourage community members to represent our diverse community on the radio. Each Radio Training participant will learn about the radio industry, media law, community radio codes of practice and also learn how to present information on-air, solo and co-host presentation, interview, digital editing, produce content, write for radio and much more. The facilities at JOY are available to you during the course for practice in the studio, digital editing and internet usage.

The course is separate from volunteer induction, and does not guarantee you a place on-air as a broadcaster. During the course you are welcome to apply to become a JOY volunteer, and on completion of the course you are welcome to submit a program proposal. for more infor
