Aged Care Courses

The ageing population explosion is being experienced word wide.

As a global phenomenon, the healthcare industry will be making dramatic changes to the way that services are provided to the elderly both in the community and home care setting as well as in a residential aged care facility (formally a Nursing Home).

Obtaining a qualification in aged care and individual support you will be highly regarded for employment throughout the different care sectors and communities. Working in aged care is a specialised and rewarding experience for those that have the passion to care and support our elderly citizens. The courses focus on all the mandatory skill sets, competencies and extra needs of care workers that require the skills in medication assistance and working with people who have dementia. There is also a mandatory 120 hours of work placement to be undertaken throughout your training.

The ACCLM is a specialised college that can ground your career in the entry level skills and competencies needed for working with the elderly and including the individual support to those who may not be old, rather in need of care and support in their daily lives. Our courses are fully supported with modern text books, expert facilitators and online learning. The college is fully equipped with Medical/Nursing simulation labs that will enhance your practice and give you confidence when you go out into the field for work placement.

Job roles are diverse and opportunities are endless. You can begin at certificate III level or upskill yourself to a Certificate IV if you are looking for senior care and junior leadership jobs. These courses are an excellent opportunity to enter what will be the biggest employment sector moving forward in many countries, and this qualification will be highly sought after world-wide. If you have the passion to care and support those that need it most, then continue and follow the links provided.

Testimonials

I just want to say a big thank you for all the support you guys gave me. At this stage in my life I never thought I would be able to take up study again let alone pass my course and receive a Certificate. Achieving the result has boosted my confidence and as a mum about to enter back into the workforce I feel I have learnt heaps of an area I was truly scared to approach. With the learning modules set in blocks so I could do my practical placement along the way gave me experience and also I was able to practice what I had learnt. I thank ACCLM and all the staff who talked me through my issues along the way. You were all truly amazing! THANK-YOU

In 2015 while completing my Year 12 I also decided to do a Diploma of Management to hopefully increase my chances of getting into the Uni and course I wanted. I found the online learning component really easy to use and suited my study pattern. I enjoyed the easy access to online resources and the assessments as they were tailored to healthcare which gave me insight into Nursing which is what I was applying to University for in 2016. When I needed help I was able to call or email the College and I always had someone contact me back within 24 hours to book a time that suited my schedule to go over my issue. I was able to do some short online courses as part of my study which were great and gave me printable Certificates which I have put in my CV and helped me with my part time job interview. I finished my Diploma and learnt heaps along the way. I also got the Uni I wanted and am studying Nursing. Very Happy!

I decided to do the next level of Certificate so I could increase my chances of a higher paid position within the healthcare sector. I have grown as a person and have learnt some lifelong lessons along the way. I enjoyed the learning experience immensely. ACCLM is the best RTO that I have had the pleasure of learning from. I would highly recommend to anyone wishing to further their education.

I studied my Certificate III over twelve months online. I had no previous experience in HealthCare so I was a bit worried how I would go. I spoke to Student Services nearly every week and the lady reassured me I was on track. The trainer would call me and go through areas I was stuck on and guide me. I really liked the short courses. There was quizzes and really cool pictures which taught me about the subject I was studying. I like that I could study at my own pace. I ended up getting a job at the aged care facility I did my placement at and love the residents.
