2016 UPDATE TO AGED CARE CERT III

14th December, 2015

group-study-300x261 2016 brings in a new standard in aged care training. The certificate III in Aged Care is being transitioned to Certificate III in Individual Support.

Anyone starting with Austcare in 2016 will automatically begin the latest update.

The new Certificate III in Individual Support has a core set of competencies and offers specialisations in Ageing Support, Home and Community Support as well as Disability. The qualification offers flexibility of electives to meet their job role, however also maintains the integrity of the current qualifications in that a learner can undertake either one or two specialisations, which would be identified on their transcript.

Qualifications at the Certificate IV level have also been merged but in this case it is only the Certificate IV in Aged Care being merged with the Certificate IV in Home and Community Care, the new qualification titled as the Certificate IV in Ageing Support.

The language used across all relevant units has been updated to reflect current terminology and service provision.

The Industry standard of 120 hours of work placement is now mandatory not just recommended.
