CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support

The CHC43015 Certificate IV in Ageing Support introduces more advanced concepts associated with the provision of quality aged care services and is often used to prepare future supervisors and senior care workers.

This qualification can be completed as a stand-alone qualification or in combination with the Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing). If completed as a stand-alone qualification it would be expected that prospective students already hold a CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing), or equivalent.

The Australian Medical Association (WA) has been helping to train care workers for more than 20 years, finding meaningful employment for thousands of graduates. Our trainers are highly experienced and frequently called upon by the aged care sector to deliver customised training programs based on the subjects completed in the Certificate IV in Ageing Support.

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 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 18-unit Certificate provides a more detailed exploration of advanced care techniques. 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 the aged care providers in Western Australia. The AMA works closely with the aged and disability sector, making a learning journey with AMA College one of the most rewarding experiences for students wishing to become care workers.
