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

Are you working in Ageing Support or Home and Community Care and want to be qualified?

Consultations with industry and health care providers have provided the inspiration for this fast track course. It is for experienced workers who already have most of the required skills and knowledge from working in a broad context of aged/individual care environments with persons needing a wide range of supports. It specialises in both in Ageing, Home and Community Care and reflects the role of support workers in residential or community settings who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred service. Learners will graduate with dual specialisation in ageing, home and community care and a pathway to Certificate IV Aged Care.


Unit knowledge assessments are required weekly and will take between 2 and 5 hours to complete at home. RPL (recognised prior learning may be applied to the mandatory clinical placement of 120 hours). Learners will be required to provide a letter from their employer stating their tenure of service within the sector and that they have provided personal care/support for over 120 hours under clinical supervision/support to persons with a wide range of support needs.
Learners require a high level of written and spoken English language.
