If you are enrolling in this course as a Traineeship, you must have employment in the relevant industry before commencing the course.
If you want to make a genuine difference to the lives of people with a disability, then our Certificate IV in Disability (CHC43115) course can set you on the right path.
With our nationally accredited qualification, you can develop your skills to assist people with a disability to achieve greater levels of independence and enjoy an increased quality of life. It’s a selfless career choice – and we want to support you in your chosen occupation as much as possible.
The course is delivered flexibly, suited to your particular needs. There is a work placement component of 120 hours embedded within the course. We design some assessments to be completed in your workplace or completed online and plan for your attendance at Kangan Institute to be as work friendly as possible. We can also organise work placement opportunities that are interesting, suit your needs and give you an insight into future careers paths.
Before you can start your practical placement, you will need to provide the following compulsory requirements:
• A valid Working with Children Check (Volunteer)
• A satisfactory National Police Check – National Police checks are conducted via fit2work. An account with fit2work will be created using the student’s name and the Kangan Institute issued student email address, once studies in the program have commenced. Further information will be provided once enrolment has been completed.
All students required to attend on-site learning must be fully vaccinated in line with Kangan Institute’s Vaccination Policy
