3D animation advice needed

I need some advice,
I?m a professional 2D animator in Melbourne and I?m looking at getting in to 3D, I have basic Max skills and am thinking of undergoing a Short course offered at AIE
( http://www.aie.edu.au/courses/cert_iii_screen.php ) could anyone recommend this course?
And the other thing I wanted to know about was what the employment opportunity is like in Melbourne and what the salary was like for 3d animators; say a junior animator, and a senior animator? Am I being to vague?
