The Pathway for candidates considering a future or course in Personal Care or Aged Care

A Short course. An introduction into aged Care

A taste to get started.


Dip a toe in the water first, with an aged Care Short Course
We offer pre-employment short courses that run over 5 weeks. These partial or pre-employment courses (TNIs) offer you a taste or introduction to personal care, aged care and disability care work by completing the 5 subjects:
  • CHCCOM005 Communicate and work in health or community services
  • HLTAID011 Provide First Aid
  • HLTWHS002 Follow safe work practices for direct client Care
  • HLTINF001 Comply with infection prevention and control policies and procedures
  • CHCCCS015 Provide individualised support


Short courses provide you with the opportunity for entry level into care work, but a higher paid role such as a Personal Care Worker (PCW) will need to complete a full CHC33015 Cert III in Individual Support qualification. The subjects you complete in this short course will be credited against a full qualification for a more senior role.
