Hello. I am a Cert III Aged Care teacher looking for feedback from students doing/done Cert III. I was wondering how you felt about how prepared you were for the course; and whether some sort of orientation to the course would have been beneficial to your learning ? Would love to hear from you. Oh, and if I can give some help in return, please ask.

Hi there D ESTAE,

I am nearly half way through my aged care cert3 and i am loving it. Although having no prior knowledge of nursing or Aged Care i found it quiet daunting to begin with. I managed to get casual work in a facility and have been there for 3 weeks and i love it - this has proven to be the best way to learn. I have gained so much knowledge, i have also found the course a lot easier now that i have a better understanding of what they are talking about. I start my prac in a high care facility in 2 weeks and i can't wait for the challenges that will bring!
