|Qualification:||Statement of Attainment - training in Digital Photo Practice (Capture) [extract from CUA41115]|
|Duration:||Face-to-face delivery in classroom and workshops on location field trips. One evening a week for 15 weeks, approximately 5.30-8.30pm.|
|Likely Job Outcome:||While there are no specific job opportunities at the conclusion of this training, it does provide many of the foundation skills needed by those planning a career in photo imaging. The skills and knowledge gained also apply in contexts where photography may not be the primary job role or main focus of work activity. For example, in the creative sectors a visual artist uses these skills to document the progress of work. In the events industry, an event coordinator might need to take photographs of potential venues or site layouts. Image styles may be technical, photojournalistic or illustrative. Successful completion of the national unit of competency achieved in this training is credited towards and allows entry into training in Digital Photo Editing (Lightroom) and/or the Certificate IV in Photography and photo Imaging which does lead to photographic industry job opportunities.|
