Note: Not all Courses are available each term. Click on the timetable below for next term to find out which courses are running.
The first enrolment day for Term 4 will be about 1st September 2019. The enrolment booklet will be left outside the computer training room during class times for further enrolments each day until the end of term 3.
After that date you may enrol or enquire about availability of classes by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You PRINT your name on the Enrolment Sheet allotted to the class you wish to take. Once ten people have taken the ten positions for any class, that class is full. After this, applicants may place their names in the Waiting List section (in case one of the first ten applicants pulls out before the start of the new term). If there are insufficient people wanting a class it may need to be cancelled. Therefore it is wise to indicate your second choice.
Please read the Course Description flyer and check that you have the prerequisites before applying for a class.
Classes will be filled in the order requests are received, however priority may still be given where a member has genuinely applied before, but been unsuccessful in gaining a place in class.
If there are overflows sufficient to create a second class for a course, we may do so if a day and trainer is available. There will be a decided benefit if members endeavour to enrol early, as a need would be quickly noted.
Classes with less than 5 enrolments may be cancelled.
The cost of courses vary and range from between $5-$25 per course.
To find out the specific course of the course youre interested in check the Term Timetables where the prices for running courses are listed.
If you have any further question or your circumstances change and you are unable to go ahead with your chosen class, please notify us A.S.A.P. by sending an email to email@example.com
Also please use this email address for any late enrolments. These will be accepted through this email address up to the first week of the Term.

Next General Meeting
Wednesday 19th February 2020 at 10 a.m.
Guest Speaker: Charles Barton
Topic: “The establishment of 2MBSFM, 45 years ago”
Stereo FM Radio came to Australia in December 1974, not by the action of government or industry but by a group of voluntary visionaries, engineers, technicians and others who launched 2MBS-FM (a full year before ABC-FM went to air). Charles was one of those volunteers.. He is one of those who has worked continuously with the station for just over 45 years.
He will discuss how the station came into being, the adventures of the early days and how the station has prospered since then to become a major force in the musical life of Sydney and surrounding districts.
