Our training ensures that you are trained to help your clients and teach them to empower themselves and encourage them to maintain their independence.  Your role is to ensure their mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing while strengthening them each day using the training we provided.
  • Funding. We know that a lack of funding often hampers dreams. If you intend to acquire a certificate through us, take comfort in the fact that there are funding options available. You can select between a funded and a non-funded course. To obtain a Certificate IV in Disability Government – Funded, there is a state government option. If you are deemed eligible, your studies will be partially subsidised as you are still responsible for a portion of your course.
  • Practical experience. Before receiving your certificate, you need to demonstrate 120 hours of work to be successfully assessed and deemed competent. This practical experience is critical as it prepares you for your job once you have acquired your certificate.  As you are employed in the industry – we will require a copy of your position description and payslips.

How Much do You Know About a Certificate 4 in Disability?

Before attempting this course, you need to consider a few key factors to ensure that this course and this career are ideal for you. Workers caring for clients with disabilities have unique attributes, such as those highlighted below.

  • Client. If you struggle with patience, this is not the course for you. This position requires a patient and calm individual at all times.
  • Empathetic. This attribute is probably one of the most important that a caretaker needs to have. You must be able to notice what your patient requires to better care for them.
  • Experienced. Experience requires time; however, the practical hours and ongoing client care hours you accumulate ensure that you enhance your skills and acquire more practical knowledge.

We look forward to welcoming you and to travelling this journey with you. It is challenging at times, but the results make it worth it. If you want us to help you make your dream a reality, contact us today for more information.
