The JOY Radio Training course provides radio broadcast training covering areas like on-air presentation, interviewing techniques, studio operation, media law, digital editing and loads more.

Course graduates obtain skills, knowledge and expert guidance that allows them to independently create and deliver great radio with confidence.

The training course runs over eight weeks with each session 3 hours. Training takes place at JOY 94.9 studios in Melbourne and is conducted by some of our most talented and experienced broadcasters. You need to attend every session to pass the course, and to get to air in the future.

JOY 94.9 is a volunteer-based community radio station committed to providing a voice for the diverse LGBTIQA+ communities, enabling freedom of expression, the breaking down of isolation and the celebration of our culture achievements and pride.

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 as a broadcaster. During the course you are welcome to apply to become a JOY volunteer, on completion of course you are welcome to submit a program proposal. We will also buddy you with a show for the duration of the course so you get to see how things happen behind the scenes.

Course is available for JOY Members only!
