Course Overview

This course addresses the unique needs of ageing Australians and those who require additional assistance.

We help Participants with the creation of individualised plans to support those who need it and provide you with the knowledge and understanding to empower the elderly and those living with a disability.

Individual Support Workers require empathy and understanding, which is why our course content includes specialised units that will help Participants use their discretion and judgement.

Successful completion of this qualification will achieve a Nationally Recognised Certificate.
