Workers in community services are in demand today, but what can you do to get a career in this industry?
Employers are looking for individuals who have the passion to serve the community, but they only hire those with a formal qualification in community or case management services.
Unfortunately, not everyone can study for a qualification because of other commitments. Going to face-to-face classes and workshops can demand too much of your time.
Fortunately, you can take the online Diploma of Case Management training course even if you’re busy with work or family commitments. This is because online training courses are self-paced and offer fully flexible study hours.

You will learn to carry out the duties and responsibilities of a community service worker through this course. This course is designed to meet the same learning outcomes as face-to-face study. This means that you will gain the same skills, knowledge, and training as you would in face-to-face study.
The core units for this online training course are:
