I am doing mine through TAFE which has just started but youcan do it through other organisations. It takes to Dec to complete as we need to do training at a care facility.

Do a google seach will give you a list of other places that are also running the course shorter then 6 mths. You can do it by distnace learning as well.

as Possum was saying i am also doing mine through TAFE for 18 weeks/6 months (in the same class actually :P ) ..however there are other organisations you can do it in a shorter time but not as in depth as the TAFE modules...i have a friend who completed an Aged Care Cert III in 6 weeks...but that was through adult education in our local area...
