Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing, Home and Community)

Looking for a rewarding career?

This new course has replaced Certificate III in Aged Care. It reflects the role of workers in residential or community setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support due to ageing, disability or some other reason.

Partnerships with Industry creates high quality training and employment.

HKCC consults with industry and health care providers to develop their work force with recognised qualifications, skills and currency. Our course has 13 units – 7 core units and 6 electives. Graduates will receive a dual specialisation in ageing, home and community. Industry prefers trained staff who can assist clients with medications, this is an additional unit to the qualification and can be purchased separately.
