CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support

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 ageing, disability or some other reason. Work involves using discretion and judgement 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.

What will you learn?

Ultimately you will learn how to work effectively in Australia’s aged care industry. This includes learning about the Australian legal and ethical frameworks you need to follow as a support carer, how to recognise healthy body systems, and what workplace health and safety practices you are required to comply with as a member of the aged care industry.

During your course, you will be taught how to empower older people and those with disabilities, provide support to those living with dementia, and support their independence and well being.

If you want to help empower and encourage seniors or elderly individuals in your community, then the CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support offers you the valuable knowledge and skills required in health and community care.
