ABOUT OUR QUALIFICATIONS
All of our courses have been tailored to be delivered in a purely online format. Students receive all of the lesson content online, via the AOMI study portal and any required text-books are mailed to the students residential address, upon enrolment. Students can also interact with subject lecturers, and their peers via the subject forums on the AOMI study portal.
Depending on the level of study, students undertake between 2 and 5 units of study per 10 week term, with each program running for 4 consecutive terms, or 12 months in length. The weekly commitment for students can range from approximately 4 - 25 hours of study per week, depending on the program undertaken.
Our scope currently includes:
- Certificate II in Music industry (CUA20615)
- Certificate III in Music Industry (CUA30915)
- Certificate IV in Music industry [Music Performance] (CUA40915)
- Diploma of Music Industry (CUA50815)
- Short music courses
Our online courses employ 4 x 10 week terms, with intakes commencing January, April, July and October. Our Cert. II, III, IV and Diploma courses can all be completed within 12 months of enrolment.
All of our courses have certain pre-requisites. Particularly, the music courses (Cert. II, III and IV music) require that the applicant play a musical instrument or sing.
Additionally, English is the language in which the course content is delivered therefore, prospective students must be proficient in the English language in order to be approved for enrolment.
Lastly, there are a number of required essentials that students MUST HAVE ACCESS TO in order to undertake online study.
For the music courses (Cert. II, III and IV music) these are:
A modern PC or Mac computer with high-speed Internet access. The computer needs to be a recent model (no more than 5 years old) in order to run specific software.
Your standard suite of "office" software, in particular: Microsoft Word (or similar), Microsoft Excel (or similar) and Adobe Reader. Alternatives, such as "Open Office" may also be used.
An email account and a Vimeo account. The Vimeo account will be used for uploading video that will be assessed.
A scanner in order to scan in and upload your work. Students will need to fill out worksheets as a part of some units. Consequently, these will need to be scanned in and uploaded or sent to your subject lecturer.
Your own musical instrument and any associated accessories/peripherals - as an example, for electric guitar, this would include picks, leads, amplifier etc.
Something to video yourself, this could be a video camera, an iPhone or iPod, or a laptop's webcam
Mailing address to send you textbooks and enrolment merchandise.
Each course is comprised of specific units of competency, developed by ISC's (Industry Skills Councils) for VET (vocational education and training) providers. These programs have been specifically packaged by AOMI so as to be delivered online, according to the packaging rules as specified on the training.gov.au website.
Students receive either "competent" or "not yet competent" for each unit of study they undertake. Students must be deemed "competent" in all units in order to be awarded a qualification.
Each program contains a range of employability and career outcomes. In the case of Cert. II and III programs, these outcomes typically involve articulation to higher levels of study, such as Cert. IV or higher. The Cert. IV programs likewise articulate to university level studies, such as diploma or degree.
Alternatively, any program can be taken on its own merits and employed for upgrading ones skill set and knowledge base.
