Course Description

In this course you will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to manage the installation and set-up of equipment required to realise designs for vision systems used on either a temporary or permanent basis in the live production, event and audiovisual industries.

Skills in vision system design are developed through practice and you will learn to work autonomously in a team environment as you take responsibility for creating quality vision system designs.

Credit Transfer and Recognition of Prior Learning:

Credit transfer is the recognition of previously completed formal learning (an officially accredited qualification).

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is an assessment process that allows you to demonstrate competence using the skills you have gained through experience in the workplace, voluntary work, informal or formal training or other life experiences.

Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) RCC applies only if you have previously successfully demonstrated competence in a unit of competency, and now require to be reassessed to ensure that the competence is being maintained.

Please speak to your teacher if you wish to discuss applying for Credit Transfer, RPL, or RCC for the unit(s) of competency addressed in this course.
