As part of your CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) 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 work with a number of excellent facilities in the Western Australia regional areas, and we always aim to place individuals in a facility that is close and convenient for their individual needs. Students need to be available for shifts from Monday to Friday, 7am or 9pm. There is no weekend work required.
Please Note: Practical Placement positions are at the discretion of the facilities availability and criteria.
When students are attending any Aged Care work placement, they must always wear a student uniform. The uniform consists of the following:
- Black enclosed comfortable footwear. Eg: similar to a school shoe or a nursing shoe. This is at your own cost.
- Plain black pants or slacks. No denim, cargo pants or track suit pants. This is at your own cost.
