Studying an Aged Care course

The standards of qualification for aged care jobs are increasing all the time, so if you want to turn your compassion into a career, you really ought to work your way up to a postgraduate qualification. You don’t need to do it all in one go. You can find a job after completing your undergraduate studies and then sign up for postgraduate online courses in aged care, so you can study while you work. If you’re going to volunteer at an aged care facility or care for your parents at home then a short aged care training course may be all that you need to guide you in the right direction. You can choose an aged care course from one of the options listed on Now Learning.

Most aged care courses include elements of counselling, because carers need to provide emotional support to patients, as well as their families. They also include subjects like community work because some projects, especially those run by NPOs, take a broader look at aged care – one that includes a community-based approach. Short courses in aged care may include things like first aid training and basic health and safety principles, including how to properly administer medication and how to care for bedridden patients.

Once you’re qualified and are ready to start looking for a job, you’ll need to find out about the licensing requirements for aged care practitioners in your territory in Australia.

Aged care is one of the fastest growing industries in Australia, with increasing demand everywhere from Brisbane to Perth and Darwin to Sydney. Use our course finder to find out more about on-campus and online aged care courses in your area.
