What is an Aged Care Course?

An aged care course is a course that teaches you a range of skills to best equip you to work with the elderly. These courses will prepare you to work in a variety of areas, including:

  • Community services
  • Ageing support
  • Community care services
  • As a personal caregiver or personal care assistant

Working in the aged care industry can be incredibly rewarding, whether you’re a personal care worker, in support services for healthcare operations or working in aged care facilities. Aged care can also offer you a wide range of employment options, including full-time work, part-time work, contract work or management opportunities.

Aged care workers see high rates of personal accomplishment from within their work, as delivering home care or being a support worker for the elderly can result in you building meaningful personal relationships with those that you care for.
During a course, you’ll be required to undertake several core units, as well as possibly the option of elective units. These units may include:

  • HLTWHS002 Follow safe work practices for direct client care
  • CHCCCS011 Meet personal support needs
  • CHCCCS023 Support independence and wellbeing
  • CHCAGE005 Provide support to people living with dementia
  • HLTAAP001 Recognise healthy body systems
  • CHCCOM005 Communicate and work in health and community services
  • CHCDIV001 Work with diverse people
  • CHCAGE001 Facilitate the empowerment of older people
  • CHCLEG001 Work legally and ethically
  • HLTAID003 Provide first aid

Depending on the level of study you complete, you may also undertake a work placement during your study, along with more detailed units.

Some of the courses you could complete include:

  • CHC33015 Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing)
  • Certificate IV in Ageing Support
  • Dual Certificate III in Individual Support and Certificate IV in Ageing Support

There may also be options for further study after you’ve completed your initial course.

Why Melbourne?

Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria, and a vibrant Australian centre for art, culture and cuisine. As such, there are several TAFE schools, CRICOS providers, and schools within the CBD that can give you the best of studying and working. If you’re an international student, you should check with CRICOS before enrolling in a course to ensure that you’re eligible.

There may also be government funding options for students who are looking to work in aged care, with tuition fees, payments plans, start dates and ABNs varying between RTOs.

If you think an aged care course could be for you, enquire above about a specific course.
