Certificate IV in Disability


Become a Disabled Care Worker

As a graduate of this course, you will be well qualified to work in the Disabled care sector in Australia, for which there is a high level of demand today. The introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) by the Australian Government has led to a more concerted national approach to disability support. This scheme serves to provide individualised support and services for people with a disability, their families and carers and helps them to achieve their aspirations.
