    hi, do you hold DJ training lessons on the UBC campus?

  • Martin Stillman says:

    I’m aware you’re overflowing with signups but I would be so thrilled to still do this. I hope you open up another set of training days!

    Peace,
    Martin

    Hi,

    I m just wondering how do I sign up? Did you guys close registration cuz it’s overflowing?

    Let me know, or just sign me up somehow.

    Thanks.

  • the eds says:

    Hey James, we will tell everyone how to register at the info session this friday at 2pm or 4pm in room 205 of the SUB

  • the eds says:

    Yes, the beginner sessions will be on campus

  • Keegan says:

    Hey, when are sign-ups for the November classes going out? I thought I’d have heard about it by now. I’ve got a note saying tomorrow in my planner but I don’t remember where that came from.

  • ascus pap says:

    Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  • Lily says:

    Are you guys going to have additional sessions in 2nd term?

  • bgrunau says:

    We use wordpress. Not sure what other options are!

  • Sarah says:

    Are these the same as the training sessions that enable you to do a guest show on the radio?

  • Zoe Pelad says:

    Hey, Sarah! DJing 101.9 is free and open for all UBC students and CiTR members. Our programmer training which allows you to get on air is for members only: UBC students can be members for a year for only $10, $30 for community members and you get training and so much more. Email DJ Oker – djtraining@citr.ca for more on DJing 101.9 and email volunteer@citr.ca for more info on becoming a CiTR member. ~ Zoe

  • Producer says:

    I know you said UBC students are eligable…but what about Alumni?

  • bgrunau says:

    Sure thing – membership at CiTR costs $35, and gets you into our DJ program and the rest of the perks of being a member of the station.

  • I am really interested in this. If Alumni is considered I know my brother will be in.

  • joanne says:

    Will the course be available in term 2? i want to join but i guess it’s way too late to join the term 1 program now.

  • Michal says:
