/ Radio Training

 

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. 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. Note: you need to attend every session to pass the course. There may be some leeway with this, however sessions 3  4  5  &  6 are the most important and essential to you passing the course 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 LGBTI 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 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. We will also buddy you with a program for the duration of your course so you get to see how things happen behind the scenes.

Course fee:
$400 JOY members
$490 non-members

There is one scholarship available in each course, to apply for a scholarship position please contact the Program.Director
