Training

4ZZZ provides engaging training opportunities for subscribers and community members interested in the media industry.

Training offered by 4ZZZ in-house is open to everyone in the community, however access for popular training programs is prioritised toward current, financial subscribers and station volunteers.

Announcer Training

Have you dreamed of becoming an announcer on 4ZZZ or just want to learn more about community media?

All of our announcers are current, financial subscribers and are also volunteers at the station.

Once you show your commitment to 4ZZZ as a volunteer, you are eligible to apply for an on air show, though please note only current subscribers who are volunteers are given preference for on-air programs.

This training is mandatory for all potential 4ZZZ announcers. It covers: station history, media law, station policy, paneling and presenting.

Our Grid (or Program Guide) changes every 6 months, with applications going out to our volunteers eight weeks prior to commencement of each new grid/block  on June 1 and December 1. 

4ZZZ Volunteer Info:
- All announcers/volunteers must be current subscribers to the station (and continue to be so while volunteering at 4ZZZ) www.4zzz.org.au/subscribe
- All announcers must have completed around 50 hours of volunteering before being considered for an on air program and maintain a volunteering commitment outside of hosting an on air program. You can apply to volunteer at the station through our online form www.4zzz.org.au/participate 
- All announcers must have completed 4ZZZ's In House Announcer Training Program or they will not be eligible to be considered for an on-air shift
