QQI Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Media Production – 6M5130.
The world of media is changing dramatically. Video and audio are a bigger part of our lives than they’ve ever been – across a multitude of technologies and platforms. And yet despite all the new technologies we’re also still in love with radio: a medium with the power to connect and communicate still unlike any other.
“You know, I do music. If you look under the hood of the industry I’m in, it’s all based on technology. From radio to phonographs to CDs, it’s all technology. Microphones, reel-to-reels, cameras, editing, chips, it’s all technology.” – will.i.am
