The Certificate IV in Disability is suited to those who are ready to advance a career in the disability sector and build on their experience and skills in the industry.
This qualification reflects the role of workers in a range of community settings and clients’ homes, who provide training and support in a manner that empowers people with disabilities to achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation and wellbeing. Workers promote a person-centred approach, work without direct supervision and may be required to supervise and/or coordinate a small team.
The Certificate IV in Disability is delivered through workplace training mode, enabling students to further their knowledge and career while continuing to work in a position in the industry.
The trainers at Selmar are there to support to you throughout the duration of the course. Get in touch with us on 1300 223 040 to find out more.
