CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)

Starts weekly (Tuesday)

The new CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Cert 3 Individual Support) now replaces all of these old qualifications. This qualification was endorsed by the industry skills council August 2015 and replaces the following qualifications:

  • CHC32012 Certificate III in Aged Care (Cert 3 Aged Care)
  • CHC30408 Certificate III in Disability (Cert 3 Disability) 
  • CHC30312 Certificate III in Home and Community Care (Cert 3 Home and Community Care)

This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan to provide person-centred support to people who may require support due to aging, disability or some other reason. Work involves using discretion and judgment in relation to individual support as well as taking responsibility for own outputs. Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support.
