The Certificate III in Individual Support provides you with the skills to work in a community or residential setting. In this capacity workers follow an individualised plan to provide person centred support to people who many require support due to ageing, disability or other reasons.
This qualification includes 120 hours of work placement and equips you with the practical skills you will need in the work place (placement is one of the best ways to get work in the industry).
The core units are centred on individualised support, communication, legal and ethical work practices and BCA National’s program has been customised including three electives to allow for the Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) specialisation.
