Certificate III in Community Services

National ID: CHC32015 | State ID: AWJ2

 

The Certificate III in Community Services is ideal for support workers, case workers and client contact officers and generally, positions with direct contact with clients, identify presenting needs and refer to appropriate services and support. These support workers and case workers may provide day-to-day support in community settings and/or provide assistance with entitlements and benefits under the broad direction of others.

This course will train you with interpersonal skills to work in residential and community settings with clients, identify their needs and plan and develop appropriate services to meet those needs. You'll gain an insight into the community services sector including mental health, alcohol and other drug services and domestic violence services and learn about the ethical and legal responsibilities of community workers.

This course provides a pathway into Certificate IV in Community Services, Certificate IV in Mental Health or Certificate IV in Youth Work.

All of our Community Service qualifications have flexible training delivery modes and the option to study on the job. This means you get the most relevant skills and the opportunity to form industry contacts.

You'll also be mentored by attentive and caring lecturers who have extensive experience in the industry. There is an ongoing skill shortage in this industry so employment prospects are high.

Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.

International Students

If this course is available for International students you will need to pay your course fees to TIWA when you accept your offer.
