Australia is in the “Golden Age” as the ageing population grows and drives the aged care industry growth and accelerates the demand for aged care workers.

The CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support course provides students with a range of skill and knowledge to provide person-centred support to those in need due to ageing. This course contains 13 units (7 core and 6 electives) and covers the following themes;

  • Support Independence and Wellbeing
  • Compliant Aged Care Practice
  • Work in Health and Community Services
  • Support and Empowerment of Older People
  • First Aid


The course duration typically takes 6 months (depending on the student’s previous learning, experience, and employment status) with a total of 770 nominal hours** (inclusive of 120 work placement hours).

**This is an indicative number of hours. The actual number of nominal hours will depend on the student’s choice of specialised stream.

Delivery Method

The CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood Education and Care course is delivered through a blended learning experience of either face-to-face and/or online study. Students will be assigned a Trainer/Assessor who will conduct regular face-to-face classes. These classes are then combined with both online components and practical assessments that are undertaken in an actual work environment. This blended method delivery allows our Trainer/Assessor to not only support the student through their learning but assess them to determine their level of competency in each unit.
