This qualification addresses the role of support workers who complete specialised tasks and functions in aged services; either in residential, home or community based environments. Workers may be able to work independently within clearly defined organisation guidelines and service plans. Workers will carry out activities related to maintaining an individual’s wellbeing through personal care and /or other activities for living and may provide services to individuals with complex needs, and/or work with groups of older people.
Once qualified you are able to provide personal, holistic care to the elderly in various settings, which can encompass home and community care, residential aged care facilities, retirement villages and hospitals. This allows you to supervise and/or coordinate a limited number of other workers.
The Certificate IV in Aged Care will combine classroom training with on the job training by our highly qualified training staff. Students will be able to put into practice the skills that they have learnt in the classroom through placement at a registered aged care facility. Resources and equipment used to train students are to industry standards.
