About Cert III in Music

The Certificate III in Music Industry (Performances) (CUA30915) is a nationally recognized qualification run through Collarts (Australian College of the Arts) (RTO No. 0109). This qualification provides a vocational outcome in its own right and stretches beyond ‘preparation for work.’ A total of 11 units, comprising three core units, six specialist units, and two elective units are required for completion of this qualification.

Whilst studying the Certificate III in Music Industry (Performance) course, you will work with experienced industry professionals on a number of projects. The difference between Castlerock's Cert III in Music Industry (Performance) course, and other facilities, is that you'll be performing at a REAL event, and working on projects within a REAL record company and recording studio, not just simulations and theory.
