CHC43115 - Certificate IV in Disability

Overview

All Health Training is a Registered Training Organisation (TOID 22066) and provides individuals the opportunity to update their skills to perform at an optimum level and provide professional excellence. We deliver a variety of courses with a major focus on health, aged care and pathology collection - growth industries with significant staffing shortages.

Course Introduction:

The Certificate IV in Disability reflects the role of workers in a range of community settings and clients’ homes, who provide training and support in a manner that empowers people with disabilities to achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation and wellbeing. Workers promote a person-centred approach, work without direct supervision and may be required to supervise and/or coordinate a small team.  Employment outcomes include varying roles which may include Behavioural support officer; Disability officer - day support; Disability support officer / worker; Residential care officer; Social trainer; Supervisor; Local area coordinator; Senior personal care assistant.

Course entry requirements:

  • This is an open entry program of study with participants needing to read, write and communicate in English to a level to perform the job. Students will be required to complete a LLN evaluation to determine suitability.
  • Students must be over 18 years of age to conduct practical placement. 
  • Police checks are required prior to commencing practical placement which we will organise on our students’ behalf. If a student has a Disclosable Court Outcome registered against their name, we are unable to assist with placement as industry will not accept students without a clear record. This requirement is not negotiable. Please note, in Victoria this includes any offence that may have occurred up to 10 years ago and will show offences that state they are “without conviction”.
  • Students are required to obtain a volunteer Working with Children’s check (WWC) to commence placement.
  • Students are required to be able to access a computer which will allow use of a USB in order to complete assessments and read information for units of competency.

Practical Placement information

Practical placement of 120 hours is required which All Health Training will organise on our students behalf.  The shifts that a placement provider will request students to work will vary.  Some may have work during the day (eg. 10am – 3pm for day and lifestyle programs), others may have morning and/or afternoon shifts (eg. 6.30am – 9.30am & 3pm – 8pm for residential care).  All providers do request students to undertake placement in one block of time and as such, All Health Training suggests if you are already working you consider discussing and organising work and/or family care arrangements prior to undertaking practical placement to enable you to undertake these duties during the week.

Practical placement will be commenced during the course and must be completed within 1 month after the course conclusion.

If a participant is currently working in the disability sector you would be required to demonstrate working in the role for 120 hours. This can be done via completion of a Special Consideration form prior to course commencement and providing current payslips, resume and position description that we can verify. This allows students to complete practical activities within their job role.  Please refer to the Student Handbook for additional fees that may apply.

Students will be required to wear an All Health Training polo shirt and name badge (both provided) on placement.  In addition, long black pants & black closed in, non-slip shoes will be required which students will either need to provide or purchase at their own cost.

Other course information:

Students are required to complete the written assessments outside of class time, which depending on a students underpinning knowledge, may be approximately 6 – 10 hours per week.  Assessments are hardcopy but will require access to a computer for research on the internet, accessing a USB for course materials and weekly emails from the trainer.

Credit Transfer:

If students have already successfully completed units within the qualification, credit can be granted within our program.
