Certificate IV in Disability: This qualification reflects the role of workers in a range of community settings and clients’ homes, who provide training and support in a manner that empowers people with disabilities to achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation and wellbeing. Workers promote a person-centred approach, work without direct supervision and may be required to supervise and/or coordinate a small team.
Our courses can be generally offered mixed mode, with a variety of learning options to cater to individual learning styles. Most courses have been designed to be delivered to those aligned with a workplace to enable easy completion of the practical tasks associated with some components of assessment.
Duration of each course is determined using the Australian Qualifications Framework as a guide. Certificate IV level courses have a 12 month expected duration when delivered in a typical face-to-face delivery mode. This duration may change dependant on the delivery methodology. Students may apply for an extension should they require additional time.

All courses can be completed using an assessment only pathway through RPL if the candidate possesses sufficient skills and experience as determined by the assessor.
