Change Your Life with a Certificate III in Early Childhood, Education, and Care

Do you love kids? Have you ever thought about getting involved in early childhood care, only to change your mind because you figured that you would need a lot of schooling to start such a career? Do you have time available for one or two-day courses per week?

If you answered yes to the three questions above, then we want to help change your life. At Nepean Industry Edge Training (NIET), we offer several courses in early childhood care and education. Contrary to popular belief, getting involved in this industry doesn’t take a multi-year college degree. On the contrary, by taking an intensive but informative course with us, you can get the certification you need to start working with kids in an early childhood education environment.

The CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood, Education, and Care is a good first step to take if you are serious about working with children. You will learn how to care for babies, toddlers, and children, how to select healthy food and drinks for kids, how to implement approved learning frameworks in early childhood educational settings and more. With this qualification, you will be able to work in early childhood education environments that are compliant with National Quality Standards and Education and Care Services National Regulations. Such settings are not permitted to allow employees to work directly with children without the Certificate III credential.

Working with children to achieve greater wellbeing, learning, and development is a noble life pursuit for anyone. If you are interested in taking up this mission as your own, then NIET wants to help. Call us on 03 9770 1633 to learn more about our CHC30113 Certificate III in Early Childhood, Education, and Care course.
