Hi Adrienne,
to do Cert III, he needs to be certified competent in the 9 Cert II units. You could talk to your RTO and work out who will do the certification. I had a similar case last year, with a very capable student from interstate who wanted to do Cert III without Cert II. My RTO was happy for me to do the assessment, and the student was able to produce considerable evidence. I set him a range of tasks to complete for the other units. Yours would probably have plenty of tasks from IT that would cross over - I don't know the IT course though.
As for the second question, I have not heard anything of an instructor competency test! Tell me more!
Just guessing, as we don't know as yet what units will be in the new course, but PhotoShop, Flash (possibly including ActionScript 3) and Dreamweaver would be a good start in my opinion.
PixelEd ( Association of Teachers of Multimedia) will be running PD to help familiarise teachers with the new course when we find out what's in and what's out.

Hi everyone,


I am new to this list, so I don't know if this question has been asked before.  (apologies if it has...just point me in the right direction!)


Question 1:
I have one student who has just completed VCE IT Units 1 & 2 and would like to do the VET Multimedia Cert 3 over distance education (as our school does not offer it yet).

Can anyone tell me if this is possible, or would he have to do VET Multimedia Certificate II first....or maybe even sit a competency test in Cert II to obtain credits towards Cert III ?


Question 2:
If I were to teach VET multimedia from 2009+ when the revised course comes in, what software do I need to be competent in to pass the instructor competency test that is being introduced ?  (I know I need a Cert IV to teach)



Thanks you
