Certificate III in Individual Support (CHC33015)

Study with REALCARE Training & become qualified in an emerging healthcare stream of Disability, Home & Community Care & Aged Care. 

We are partnered with AMC Training and Consulting RTO32129 to deliver you exceptional content!



This is the new qualification which merges these three speciality areas. You choose which field you are interested in studying, and from there you specialise. For example, if you’re interested in helping the elderly in a nursing care facility you would choose the aged care stream. If you’re interested in caring for people in their home, you can choose to study the home and community care stream or if disability care is where your passion lies then the disability stream is for you.

When undertaking this qualification with REALCARE Training, you have the option of independent study, face-to face study time and then time putting your skills to use in a supported role within a facility. Throughout this whole process, you will be supported by your trainer and have access to help via a suitable mode.

Please contact us for further information on our Community & Aged Care Courses.
