Training logoCHC33015 – Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)

With Australia’s ageing population continuing to grow, Aged Care is one of the few industries where job security and new opportunities are possible for decades to come. Are you interested in a career helping others? Qualified carers are in high demand. This course will provide you with entry level qualifications into this vital industry.

This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to ageing, disability or some other reason. Work involves using discretion and judgement in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support.

To achieve this qualification, the candidate must have completed at least 120 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency.

This training is subsidised by the NSW government. (*for eligible students).

Entry requirements: there are no Training Package entry requirements for this course. Learners will have completed a language literacy and numeracy assessment during the enrolment process and demonstrate their learning capacity to undertake course. Students must be at least 15 years old.
