CMTO Pathways Broadcast and Management courses are a great way to kickstart and upskill your training in media. All of our short courses have no assessment tasks, which gives you the opportunity to sample CMTO training before you decide to enrol in a nationally-recognised qualification. Attendees for each session will be awarded with a Certificate for their participation.
The CMTO’s in house training kit has been designed to assist this social learning which is already happening at your station and to make it count towards a nationally-recognised qualification in media. Download a copy.
