We all know training is important! The great news is the Victorian government agrees!
As part of the Skills First program, the Victorian Government has made subsidised training available to more Victorians.
Even if you have a university degree or a qualification, you can now access funded courses (on the proviso that you meet the eligibility criteria below).
More people can launch a new career in aged care.
Our sector is crying out for people that want to make a difference! Now is YOUR time!
Not only is the course funded by the government, but the tuition fee is set by us at zero- that is free in 23’ for eligible students.
There has never been a better time for individuals wanting to skill up regardless of the reason. To get a job, to be better at their existing job, upgrade their skills to help get a promotion!
Sounds great! What course can we do?
CHC33015 – Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)
