Make yourself a valuable employee with these certifications in disability care

Whether you are looking to start a new career or make yourself more valuable to a current employer, taking disability care courses may be a smart move. With the introduction of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Australia, disabled persons and their families will have greater access to disability services than ever before. The NDIS will create greater demand for disability care services—both in the community and residential settings—which means that caregiving businesses will need workers with the qualifications and experience necessary to provide disability care.

If you want to position yourself as a high-value employee in this new care landscape, then enrolling in our disability care courses at Nepean Industry Edge Training is a good way to start. In particular, this dual certificate course can give you invaluable for helping patients with disabilities. Collectively, the CHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability and the CHC43415 Certificate IV in Leisure and Health will teach you how to provide individualised support to disabled persons, how to manage legal and ethical compliance and how to provide leisure and health programming for disability care.

These qualification courses assist in the goal of helping individuals with disabilities to feel more empowered, independent, and self-reliant. Our students learn how to promote community participation, wellbeing, and overall improved quality of life for their patients. These skills are rare, which means they are bound to be incredibly valuable in the new NDIS care landscape.
