Second media course graduation

On Wednesday night, the second group of students who took part in our FETAC/QQI Level 3 course in Media Expression received their graduation certificates.  This course took place this Spring with students attending for one day per week.  Eight people completed the course and now receive an accredited QQI Level 3 qualification in all aspects of media, including radio production and communicating through social media.  Of the eight, four attended on the night to receive their certificates.

The certs were presented by Dolores Keaveney, the chairperson of Claremorris Community Radio, who congratulated the graduates on  completing the course and wished them well in their future endeavours, both in media and otherwise.  She also expressed the hope that they might all become CCR volunteers!

The station congratulates the graduating students: Catherine Lavery O’Brien, Ann Murphy, Mary O’Brien-Killeen, Kerry Wallis, Stephen O’Gorman, Liam Byrne, Maura Kenny and Olwyn Murray.

The station is still accepting applications for its next media expression course, which is scheduled to begin in October.  Call 094 9373737 for more information.
