Frequently Asked Questions

Can I get a government subsidy?

Yes you can. We deliver CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support under the Certificate 3 Guarantee Program. It is subsidised by Department of Education and Small Business Training (DESBT) in Queensland.

Can I do the course online?

No, we do not offer our courses completely online. The courses are delivered through blended delivery which is a combination of face to face and online. All our courses require practical skills training before vocational placement is organised. Therefore, it is not practical to deliver courses completely online.

Can I get a job after completing a course?

Yes, you can. However, it is not guaranteed. Historically, an overwhelming majority of our students completing the aged care courses have been successful in securing employment as soon as they finish training.

Who will organise my vocational placement?

We will organise your vocational placement when you’re ready to do so. You have to go through practical skills training before you can be placed.
