Develop the skills to care for those within the aged care, disability, or home and community care sector

This new Certificate III in Individual Support replaces three former Certificate III qualifications in Aged Care, Disability and Home and Community Care (HACC). When you undertake this new qualification you can still choose to specialise in aged care, disability work or health and community care.

Throughout your training, the focus will be on empowering and equipping you with the knowledge and competencies required by HACC workers to deliver individualised person-centred support to people who may require assistance due to ageing, disability or some other reason, both in community or residential based settings.

You will be taught how to use discretion and judgement in relation to providing this support and to take ownership of tasks and outcomes.


Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with theoretical components of the course online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available.

Practical skills training and assessment will be carried out in scheduled small classes to meet social distancing requirements. Practical Placement is a required component of this course and will be scheduled as soon as possible with an appropriate placement host. Given the current environment, however, this may take longer than normal and therefore, expected completion dates for the course may need to be extended to take account of deferred placement.

If you have any queries on the practical placement of a course, please contact our student information centre on 1300 244 746 or enquiries@chisholm.edu.au.
