FAQ

IS READY AIM FIRE FULL TIME?

Ready Aim Fire runs Monday - Friday from 8:30am until 12:30pm. 
This is structured to allow students the opportunity for part time work, however the course will have homework assignments and group projects.
Students will then need to manage their time diligently to ensure completion of assignments. 

DO YOU OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS?

We do not offer full scholarships at this stage, however South African residents can apply for a 20% fee reduction. (For more information please read the application form and prospectus documents)

ARE YOU ACCREDITED? WHAT DO I WALK AWAY WITH?

We are not accredited, by choice. 
Although accredited media schools carry value, we believe that the most impactful training can take place in 6 months.
The goal is to get students equipped and ready to work.

Students will walk away with a certificate of participation and show reel projects that they can use to start building their portfolio. 

DO YOU HOST INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS?

We would love to have international students join our training program. 
We are able to help with:

  • Local advice on accommodation

  • Visa Letters 

Students are liable for:

  • Visa's

  • Flights

  • Accommodation 

  • Food/transport

DO I NEED MY OWN GEAR?

Students will be trained on industry standard equipment and will only need to bring a 1TB external hard drive to back up their footage. 
However, if you have a camera or a laptop, it will be helpful for after hours work and so we'd say bring it along! 

ARE MEALS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE?

Meals will be provided at events, however during the week students are responsible for their own living expenses.
There is a coffee shop at the church called Stir, as well as a grocery store within walking distance. 

DO YOU OFFER ANY EXTENDED COURSES?

At this stage, our primary focus is making the 6 month training program as impactful as possible and so we do not offer any extended courses.
However, we do offer an internship program where students will be able to stay on to serve and lead the next intake of students.
Application for this program will take place with the students during the course of their training.

DO I NEED TO JOIN OXYGEN LIFE CHURCH IF I ATTEND READY AIM FIRE?

One of our core values at Ready Aim Fire is biblical discipleship, and so we would encourage students from out of town to get plugged into Oxygen Life Church. However, if you are from Qgerberha and already belong to a local church, we would encourage you to stay linked in with them.

DO FEES COVER PROJECT COSTS?

Fees will cover software licenses, gear and insurance. 
Any additional cost such as location rental, props or wardrobe will be at the teams expense. 
Those decisions will need to be made as a team based on their personal resources.

WHERE IS READY AIM FIRE LOCATED?

We operate out of Oxygen Life Church's building, "The Base".
(13 2nd Ave, Walmer, Gqeberha, South Africa)
