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.

Full time: Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - 9am to 4pm

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 learning material 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. While it is expected that the course duration will remain unchanged, it may be necessary to extend the completion date if circumstances change. Chisholm will be monitoring the situation closely and inform of any changes if the duration of a course is extended.
