    Recently I quitted being a teacher for students with disabilities after many years and now wish to get into Age Care. Apart from my standard teaching qualification I have a diploma in psychoneurological learning disabilities and a masters in Guidance and Counselling. The response to a recent job application was that I need to complete in Certificate 111 in Age Care. I wish to start this course as soon as possible. I also have a commitment to a 86 year old aunt in Africa, who I will be supporting in her transition from independent living to an old age home as from 28th October 2016. Therefore the urgency to get the study material before I leave as internet connection there is unreliable and spars. As I will have a lot of time available providing company to my deaf aunt this would be a good opportunity to get a lot of the study done.
    Please respond as soon as possible.
    regards Anita Rothkugel

      Hi Anita! It sounds like the online aged care course fits your current situation well. This is a self paced course so you can work through it as fast you can to maximise your free time. Please enquire here on the Certificate III in Individual Support for Ageing page to get complete details about the course and also ask our Enrolment Coordinator any questions you have.

      Note that the Cert III in Aged Care was superseded last year and RTOs are no longer allowed to deliver this course. This was replaced by the new Certificate III in Individual Support for Ageing.
