Studying the Certificate III in Events at Holmesglen
Throughout the course students will learn how to communicate event ideas, gather information, plan and organise activities, work in teams and solve problems.
In the first year, students will develop and promote a special themed event, put an event proposal together for an 'in house' customer and organise an end of year event.
The focus for the second year is to further develop the skills and knowledge of the events industry, by running a larger Holmesglen in house event. This will further develop skills in meeting management, team building, client liaison and coordinating events.
The program is a VET delivered to secondary students (previously VETiS) course and can only be
completed as part of a VCE or VCAL program.
This course is a great introduction into the SIT50316/CUA30415 Diploma of Event Management/Certificate III in Live Production and Services, dual course, where students will continue to extend the skills and knowledge they have gained to establish themselves in this industry.
