How fast can I complete my qualification?

It takes between 6 – 18 months to complete most of our accredited qualifications. This depends on your ability to study the appropriate modules and complete your assessments. Most of our accredited qualifications also require work placement to be completed prior to graduation, which may take some time for students to complete.

Can I study both ageing and disability together?

Yes, students can study both Ageing and Disability streams for our CHC33021 Certificate III in Individual Support. If you’re eligible for Government funding, this will cover only one stream.
