About the course

Our Enhance Training Certificate IV in Disability CHC43121 Course is here to help you further your career in the disability support sector.

By studying with us you’ll be able to advance from your previous Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) CHC33021, or Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) CHC33015 to work with clients with or without direct supervision or even coordinate your own small team of support workers as a team leader or manager.

You will learn how to assist people living with disabilities in achieving greater levels of independence, self-reliance, community participation, and well-being.

Once you have completed this course, you could seek employment as a care worker, disability support coordinator, employment coordinator (Disability), or a position at a similar level in the field of disability services. Alternatively, you could use this qualification to pursue university studies.

Who is the course for?

This course is for anyone who loves their work in disability care and is looking for the next step. The disability care sector needs passionate, driven people to fill various essential roles at all levels. This course is for caring individuals who like to support others, who currently have a Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) CHC33021, or Certificate III in Individual Support (Disability) CHC33015, or relevant equivalent industry experience and who want to progress to a more senior role in the industry.

In-house student support

You will receive great student support throughout your studies with Enhance Training where you will have your own trainer providing support, or for more individualised strategies, a learner support service (LSS) case manager will be assigned to you. LSS is an initiative of SkillsSA and the Government of South Australia. It supports you with study plans, flexible study delivery, after-hours support and guidance which also extends after your training is complete.

This course requires you to complete 120 hours of placement, detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency. These can be completed while you study. Through Enhance Training’s wealth of experience in the industry, we can assist you in finding appropriate placements should you need help.

We believe your previous study and life experience can and should be counted toward your current studies. This is something referred to as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL). If you have previous learning or training that could assist in your Enhance Training studies, please contact our office to discuss whether a credit transfer is possible.

Why choose to study with Enhance Training?

We’re happy to acknowledge that many training organisations offer courses similar to ours across the country. So why is Enhance Training right for you? What’s the Enhance Training difference?

We are the industry

Enhance Training is for those who want the best education for themselves and the best results for the people they work with. We don’t just understand the care industry, we are in it. Enhance Training is part of Hessel Group, which both employs people and assists those who are seeking disability support, aged care, childcare services and allied health services.

Unlike many training providers, we are an end-to-end service. This means that through Enhance Training and the wider Hessel Group, you learn, complete placement, become qualified, complete training, and can even progress to positions within our wide network of Hessel Group care services and clients.

Direct from the experts

Our teachers and trainers are in the industry too. They have direct, recent, first-hand experience in the industry, so they can relate to your questions and queries about the topic and demonstrate how these scenarios may play out on the job.

Real-life practice, without the pressure

We have a dedicated Skills Lab set up with real equipment to mimic environments you may encounter on the job. This means you can practice the skills you’ve gained in full, minimising the stress of being faced with scenarios for the first time out in the real world. We find this helps our students gain a positive understanding of their skills without pressure.
