Learn how to help others afflicted by drugs and alcohol

Do you have an ambition to work within the health sector assisting people with alcohol and drug problems?

The Certificate IV Alcohol and Other Drugs will give you the foundation knowledge, skills and experience required to consider possible employment options such as an alcohol and other drugs clinician, outreach worker and/or case manager.

This qualification reflects the role of entry level workers who provide services and interventions to clients with alcohol and other drugs issues and/or implement health promotion and community interventions. Work is undertaken in contexts such as community based organisations, withdrawal services, residential rehabilitation services and outreach services under the guidance of other practitioners and professionals, with limited responsibility and within established parameters.

Students are required to complete a total of 200 hours of industry (work) placement over the course of your studies.

You will be required to produce a valid Working with Children Check and a satisfactory police check prior to commencement of this course.
