The Certificate III in Screen and Media introduces students to the Creative Industries. Students engage in industry projects from conception through to production, helping them develop foundational skills while exploring a range of industry topics.
All course areas enable students to work individually and collaboratively towards the completion of a media production. This may involve concept development, content writing, creating backing tracks and titles, marketing materials, filming and editing. Students also develop creative and critical thinking, problem-solving and business skills through discussion, projects, quizzes and portfolio development. Students use professional equipment and resources for all projects.
The Certificate III in Screen and Media may be taken as part of a pathway to a JMC Academy Diploma or Bachelor Degree program. In some cases a normal university foundation program may still be required for admission. The Student Recruitment and Admissions team will advise the most suitable pathway for each student.

VET courses are designed to reflect roles and tasks in current industry contexts. The course is practical and project based, comprising both individual and group work, and using professional industry equipment and resources. Each course involves a range of assessment tasks including projects and portfolio development.
We use the JMC Academy Plato platform for activities such as quizzes, resource sharing and discussion. Our VET course is also designed to develop and extend your critical and creative thinking skills, while you develop employability skills and an understanding of the world of work.
All students at JMC Academy have access to academic support and counselling staff, as well as student support information on Plato. In particular, individuals in our VET courses are supported during their transition to higher education via our orientation program and specialist study support. All support services are free of charge for all JMC students.
All students studying nationally recognised training in Australia from 1 January 2016, will be required to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). A USI is an account (or reference number) made up of numbers and letters. The USI allows students online access to their training records and results (transcript) through their online USI account.
