Hi Aaron & Everyone,

I currently work in the home assist area and need to enrol for my cert III in aged care. I have found courses such as thomson, seek, tafe etc., etc and am unsure which one to do. Are they pretty much all the same or does anyone have any advice on which course? would really appreciate any comments or opinions b4 I enrol.

many thanks,

Christine

Hi Chrstine and to everyone I did my course through Tafe and found it an excellent course. They are very helpful and you all help each other throughout the couse. You learn a great deal and for someone who came into the course in my forties they encouraged me all the way. I feel its much more professional and you are much more employable after it.

Hi everyone,
I'm new to this forum and it's such a joy to find so many like minded folks!
My question is about starting an online course in cert 3 aged care ( I already work 4 days in an unrelated field). I was told that it should be a TAFE course, not just any online course.
Is that true? I was told that it is preferable when it comes to employment opportunities. Would be grateful for any comments.Ta.

Glad to see a flicker of life on this post! I did ring a couple of nursing homes and was actually told they don't care either way. Cert III in aged care was for entry level and they wanted people
