The CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)
The CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) is the primary qualification for the aged care, disability and home care industries. The Australian Medical Association (WA) has been helping to train new care workers for more than 20 years, finding meaningful employment for thousands of graduates.
The aged care sector offers a unique platform from which to grow your career. Job opportunities are plentiful, as are pathways to grow into areas such as nursing, allied health, management and leadership. The aged care industry, just like healthcare is constantly evolving and is not affected by economic cycles. Instead, it needs people who care deeply and are motivated to support the most vulnerable citizens of our society to age with dignity and respect.
This 13-unit Certificate provides a comprehensive introduction to being a care worker in an Australian setting. The program runs for six months, with access to AMA College’s state-of-the-art simulation lab as well as 120 hours of work placement, organised by the AMA.
Students will also be assisted with recruitment support while they are studying, thanks to the AMA’s extensive relationships with aged care providers in Western Australia.
