Certificate IV in Ageing Support CHC43015

This is a brand new qualification which replaces the Certificate IV in Aged Care CHC40108.

This qualification reflects the role of support workers who complete specialised tasks and functions in aged services; either in residential, home or community based environments. Workers will take responsibility for their own outputs within defined organisation guidelines and maintain quality service delivery through the development, facilitation and review of individualised service planning and delivery.

Workers may be required to demonstrate leadership and have limited responsibility for the organisation and the quantity and quality of outputs of others within limited parameters.

How will I Learn?

Competency based assessment will be conducted through theory tasks, projects and practical demonstration. The training will be delivered in the College’s fully equipped aged care training room by our qualified and industry experienced trainer/assessor.

Prerequisite

The College has structured the course, at this time, for delivery to those who already have a Certificate III in Individual Support, Certificate III in Aged Care or equivalent. Students are likely to receive either credit transfer or recognition of prior learning for a number of the Certificate IV subjects on the basis of their previous qualification and industry experience. The course cost will reduce according to the number of units awarded.

Are there Assessments?

You will be required to complete self study and assessment work in your own time. There is usually a short answer question and project associated with each unit of competency. Some units of competency require training and assessment of practical skills and these will be assessed in the workplace and/or the College’s simulated workplace.
