This course is suitable for:

  • aged care workers
  • disability support workers
  • Assistant in Nursing (AIN)
  • home and community care workers
  • at home carers


Please note:

  • To complete this course, it is not a prerequisite that you must be currently employed in Industry.  This COVID-19 Skill Set stands alone and can be completed separately if desired.

Alternatively, students who are not enrolled in either qualification may be employed in an aged care or home and community care facility.  
  • There is practical assessment component to be completed in your workplace or placement, but this can be simulated if needed at NR TAFE – please talk with your local lecturer.
  • This skill set is self-paced, online  and completely flexible and all theory components are available online/can be completed in your own time outside of work hours.


Students can start at any time within the course dates listed.
