NIET’s Disability Courses in Melbourne
Becoming a disability support provider allows students to make a real difference in the lives of individuals who are in need of a helping hand. If a long-term career in disability care interests you, then our face-to-face courses in disability at Nepean Industry Edge Training (NIET) located in Melbourne (Frankston and Werribee) will put you on the right track.
What Is Disability Care?
Disability care involves assisting individuals who suffer from mental or physical impairments by helping them carry out daily tasks and activities. Support work can prove both challenging and rewarding with carers often spending long hours providing personal assistance to people with disabilities. Care workers must maintain a high level of patience, excellent communication skills and a pleasant nature at all times.
At NIET, our passionate staff have designed flexible training with industry-specific programs for students. We enable our future support workers to develop skills and learn all kinds of unique experiences. A disability support worker provides support with the following tasks:
- Household tasks
- Personal hygiene
- Administration of medication
- Translation and interpretation
- Life skills development
- Community participation
Certification for Disability
At NIET, we offer a Certificate IV in Disability (CHC43115) and Certificate IV in Leisure and Health (CHC43415 ). Our Disability Courses in Melbourne allow support workers to learn new skills and gain the knowledge necessary to assist people with intellectual and physical disabilities.
