As part of your CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support course, there is 120 – 200 hours of practical placement depending on prior skills and knowledge.
Placement is a great opportunity to put all your knowledge into practice, and experience what it is like to be a real carer. While you are on-the-job training you will be supervised and guided by experienced professionals who work at the facility and you will have scheduled visits from your trainer. This will give your trainer an opportunity to observe your competence to perform tasks at the standard required.
Aged Care Training Services will arrange Practical Placement for eligible individuals! We always aim to place individuals in a facility that is close and convenient for their individual needs. Please Note: Practical Placement positions are at the discretion of the facilities availability and criteria.
When individuals are attending any Facility for Practical Placement they must wear a student uniform at all times. Aged Care Training Services will supply you with a name badge.
