CHC43415 Certificate IV in Leisure & HealthLocations: Boronia
Certificate IV in Leisure & Health provides the skills and knowledge required to design, implement and evaluate health and leisure activities and programs which meet the physical, psychological and social needs of clients in a range of settings.
Leisure and health encompasses the activities that we engage in for reasons as varied as relaxation, exercise socialization and simply fun.
Recreation plays a large role in the Aged Care and Disability sectors of our community contributing to positive health and well-being outcomes for people accessing services. You may work with all ages ranging from the young and fit, the elderly, active, and those living with disabilities or physical restrictions, inside or outside.
Workers may be in residential facilities and/or in community agencies and day centres, completing specialised tasks and functions in relation to leisure and health. While workers are responsible for their own outputs, work is carried out under direct or indirect supervision within defined organisation guidelines.

– Activities officer
– Community leisure officer
– Disability officer – day support
– Diversional therapy assistant
