Students add world-class event to their CV

TAFE students are this week using the arrival of the World Rally Championship event to draw experience in the media, automotive and event management fields.

Digital media students had the thrill of interviewing WRC drivers and will capture the event taking digital photography that will be added to the media images shared around the world.

They will also provide some of the video footage and interviews that will be screened at WRC-TV spectator sites.

Coffs Harbour Education Campus event management students will plan and deliver tomorrow's Rally Show in the city centre, which marks the start of the week's events.

Out at the campus, TAFE automotive students will observe official scrutineering in the TAFE workshops as an integral part of their regular classes.

CHEC is also behind a host of rally events.

Vehicle scrutineering before and after the rally will be hosted in the automotive workshop.

The WRC media centre will be hosted in the student sports centre and world television editing and transmission will be hosted in the centre's multi-purpose centre.
