Dual Qualification - Certificate IV & Diploma

Our Dual Qualification is aimed at students who are interested in both Performance and Production. It combines both the Certificate IV in Music Industry [CUA40915] which is a Performance based qualification and the Diploma of Music Industry [CUA50815] which is a combination of composition and sound production. It gives students a great musical basis in order to work in their chosen field or just purely to develop their own skill set.
