Online nationally recognised course
The HLT43015 Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance course is a Nationally Recognised Qualification on the Australian Qualifications Framework which prepares learners for a career in Allied Health Services. Learners will gain knowledge through online study and the support of a dedicated trainer to support allied health professionals in a wide range of settings including physiotherapy, podiatry, occupational therapy, speech pathology, community rehabilitation and nutrition and dietetics.
This nationally recognised course reflects the role of workers who provide therapeutic and program related support to allied health professionals. The worker is required to conduct therapeutic and program related activities under the guidance of an allied health professional. Supervision may be direct, indirect or remote and must occur within organisation requirements. The worker is required to identify client circumstances that need additional input from the allied health professional. The worker may be engaged to work in a specialty area or work generically across the organisation in delivery of allied health assistance services. The worker, in conjunction with the allied health professional, may have responsibility for supervising other allied health assistance workers.
Our learning material and learning management system are designed with the student in mind; this ensures flexible and easy study.
Possible job titles include
- Community Rehabilitation Assistant
- Occupational Therapy Assistant
