Certificate III in Live Production and Services

Our Certificate III in Live Production & Services (CUA30415) is designed for those who want to work in either the technical areas of theatre, or front of house. Technicians perform a range of tasks in areas such as lighting, audio, and staging, and vision systems. Front of House students learn ticketing, ushering, bar work, and other administrative tasks. This course is one year full time, or two years part time. This course is for those who have the ability to select, adapt and transfer skills to different situations, and are able to work with a minimum of supervision.

Brisbane Arts Theatre is a registered training organisation (RTO 32424).
