Chisholm Institute of TAFE RTO 0260


VET in schools multiplies opportunities for students.  They enable students to complete a nationally recognised vocational qualification as well as contribute towards their VCE or VCAL Certificate. Classroom learning is combined with structured hands-on training and practice in industry. The Certificate III in Information Technology (Games Creation) program is designed to introduce and engage enthusiastic and passionate students to the game industry. The course will cover basic computer hardware, OH&S, digital imaging and building a gaming website through the use of hypertext mark up language (HTML). Students will also be taught web administration as well as the advanced features of Microsoft Office 2007. At this level, the emphasis is on simple game design.
