Diploma of Community Services

National ID: CHC52015 | State ID: AWM0

 

This qualification addresses work in roles that usually involve service delivery, either direct client work and/or community education or development projects.

Workers at this level operate at an advanced skill level and may also have responsibility for the supervision of other staff and volunteers.

The training package does not specify any mandatory entry requirements into this course. However prospective students should note that a mandatory part of the course requires you to participate and complete a supervised work placement, in a suitable environment that provides the services in your selected area of
study. Before you commence work placement, you may be required to obtain a police clearance (approximately $72). Please check when you enquire as to whether a police clearance is required for your work placement.

It is strongly recommended you also consult with your doctor about having a flu vaccination.

Further information on work placement requirements can be obtained from the CHC Training Package Implementation Guide

Not all study modes are offered at all campuses. Please check with your local campus for study modes and elective units offered.
