This skill set is for individuals who use introductory care practices to support fully qualified carers within an aged care or disability support environment. The support provided in client care will be predominantly non-direct. 

The Infection control Skill Set has been primarily designed for delivery online. Students are expected to start and complete the online theory component of the course using the Blackboard learning platform within one week from the start date, and the practical activities associated with the training are expected be completed within 3 weeks after the completion of the online component. The practical components required can be achieved through observation of your skills in a workplace setting, or through a video submission, or alternatively through a demonstration of your skills at one of our nominated campuses.

Nominated campuses include: Broome, Karratha, Kununurra and Pundulmurra (South Hedland).
