Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance

National ID: HLT43015 | State ID: AWN3

 

The Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance is appropriate for new or Certificate III qualified allied health assistants who wish to further develop their professional skills. An assistant works under the delegation of the degreed professional (whether it be the Speech Pathologist, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist or other allied health professional) in a rich variety of settings to promote participation in and achievement of functional independence in activity.

Clients are from a range of ages with varying presentations including physical disabilities, medical conditions, mental health ailments, ageing, developmental disability, communication difficulties and/or social disadvantage. The assistant may gain employment in both public and private health settings such as community rehabilitation centres, public hospitals, aged care facilities, schools, mental health clinics, private practices and community health centres.

This qualification elevates skills and knowledge from the Certificate III to allow for greater management over self and supervision of other allied health assistants. Some employers require Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance as a minimum for employment, especially those where home visiting and acute rehabilitation programs involve more complex clients and less frequent supervision by health professionals.

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.
NOTE up to date fees will be available shortly. Please return to this page or contact us for details
