I'm the Course Consultant for this course.
I'll happily answer all you questions about this program so that you can decide if it's the 'right-one' for you.

You have the option to apply to add the nationally accredited unit, HLTHPS006 Assist clients with medication to your course.
Our Whole Person Learning Model understands that you are unique and human and not a 'widget' in some training, factory-like, production line.
Few of us learn everything when it's delivered on a monotonous, boring, lecture-like standard way.
We understand that learning is more effective, interesting and fun if it draws on a variety of different modes; Visual, Auditory, Reading/Writing, and Kinesthetic.
This is why in every session, you'll get to talk, listen, role-play, watch, ask questions, solve and read. This means that you'll learn in ways that best suit you because the material is engaging and accessible.
Yes we will!
To achieve both qualifications, you must have complete at least 120 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency for the Ageing Support qualification and at least 120 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency for Disability qualification.
If you are unable to demonstrate the required tasks within their workplace as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency, then you will need to undertake supervised practical placement(s) to fulfil these requirements.
Where this is required, Warner Institute will organise and schedule your supervised practical work placement with an approved host provider, including having you assessed by a qualified Warner Institute Course Manager (Trainer & Assessor).
Your Supervised Practical Work Placement hours will be undertaken at the location of your host placement provider(s) on non-class days. Your placement shifts will be scheduled by your host placement provider.
Note that if you do not accept the host placement provider(s) as organised by Warner Institute then you will be required to seek your own alternative Warner Institute approved provider and this may delay your successful completion of the course.

This option is only available where it has been previously confirmed to you by a Warner Institute representative that your employer and/or host work placement provider will support you to demonstrate the required tasks within your workplace as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the unit of competency within an appropriate setting where medications are administered under the supervision of an appropriately qualified staff member.
A workplace observation assessment will also be conducted by an appropriately qualified Warner Institute Assessor. Due to the restrictions on the availability of the subject matter experts who present the Medications workshops, the technical nature of the subject matter and also the progressive nature of these assessment clusters, there are no catch-up sessions available if you do not attend your scheduled sessions.
If you do not attend your scheduled workshop sessions for the Medications workshop, then your participation will not be rescheduled unless an availability exists on a future date in an alternative course as determined by Warner Institute.T
his medications unit is additional to the course and its successful completion is not required to successfully attain your Certificate IV level qualifications.
If you’re not currently working in direct support role, you'll undertake a series of additional workplace skills sessions. These sessions will further support your learning journey and better assist your understanding of complex tasks and concepts if you’re not currently working in direct support role. These workplace skill sessions are mandatory for all participants who are not currently working in a direct support worker/carer role.
