Make yourself a valuable employee with these certifications in disability care

Whether you are looking to start a new career or increase your skills for to a current employer, taking disability care courses is a great move. The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) , gives disabled persons and their families greater access to disability services than ever before. The NDIS has created greater demand for disability care services—both in the community and residential settings—which means an increased need for workers with the qualifications necessary to provide disability care.

If you want to position yourself as a high-value employee in the disability care landscape, then enrolling in our disability care courses at Nepean Industry Edge Training (NIET) is a good way to start. In particular, a dual certificate course can give you invaluable skills for helping patients with disabilities. By completing a few extra units you can walk away with both the Certificate IV in Disability CHC43115 and Certificate IV Leisure and Health CHC43415. 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 activities 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 with employers. To learn more take a look at the Course Outline below and then call NIET today on 9770 1633.
