The Certificate III in Allied Health Assistance enables you to provide supervised assistance to allied health professionals, without conducting programs or therapeutic interventions. You will learn the skills which will allow you to support patient therapy in a specialised area as well as all the safety, communication and personal skills to make sure you are confident and competent in a demanding workplace.
Each student will require a Victorian police check and will undertake a Pre-Training Review to help confirm the proposed course is suitable. It will provide valuable information about an individual's existing skills and knowledge, language, literacy and numeracy skills and whether the course will help in achieving learning and/or employment goals.
