The CHC43115 - Certificate IV in Disability reflects the role of workers in a range of community settings and clients' homes, who provide support to empower people with disabilities. Through this support, they can achieve more independence, self-reliance, and wellbeing and can participate to the fullest extent in the community.

These workers promote a person - centred approach, work without direct supervision and may be required to supervise or coordinate a small team.

There is a practical component with work placement that provides real-world exposure to students. The course modules are structured to provide a balanced program of theory and practice relevant to the career opportunities across the healthcare industry.



Course Overview

FACE TO FACE/ CLASSROOM:

The course is provided through teacher led classroom mode delivery and will be delivered over 790 hours, including theory (20 contact hours per week at an IHNA campus), self-paced structured e-learning, simulation training (120 hours) and at least 120 hours of work based training / professional experience placement (PEP) in two blocks of 2 weeks each after each semester.

Besides the above structured learning, students are advised that they will be required to do approximate 10 hours per week of unstructured learning.

The simulation training is for review of the learning activities, practicing communication, work based skills, management skills and to undertake other assessments e.g.: group presentation/individual presentation.
