When it comes to aged care and disability, every patient has their own set of challenges and strengths and the aged care industry needs people who can cater to these individual needs.

That’s where the Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing, Home and Community) (Traineeship) comes in, because administering high levels of care means taking the time to individually plan and follow through with each patient.
You’ll learn to master a range of skills in factual, technical and procedural knowledge as you learn what’s required to provide person-centred support to the best of your abilities.
And when you finish this course, there are so many doors open to you when it comes to employment. You might find yourself working in aged care facilities, home & community care environments or hospice facilities, just to name a few!
All these courses will give you specialised skills and enhance your employment opportunities for the future. But don’t worry, we’ll be here to help you through the decision-making process if and when the time comes!
A Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing, Home and Community) (Traineeship) is the perfect platform to help those in need, taking you into the community and residential settings and helping you achieve your career goals. Come and study with us today.
