CHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability

CHC43115 Certificate IV in Disability provides the nationally recognised qualification for people wishing to work in disability support. This course will support you to take on a challenging and rewarding career in the community services sector. Right now, there is a shortage of workers in this field so there are strong employment opportunities.

Career Opportunities
Our courses are designed to provide you with the confidence, knowledge, practical skills and qualifications to work in the following job roles:

  • Home carers (either council based or with private agencies)
  • Disability support workers (working in group homes or day programs)
  • Working with agencies providing in home support for people with disabilities and older people living independently.

Delivery method

This qualification is delivered using a blended delivery model. This means that whilst some units are delivered in the classroom, others are delivered via Zoom where students and trainer meet up on-line sing their laptop or personal computer. There are four timetable options:

  • A weekday timetable over a period of approximately 28 weeks, 2 days per week, 9.30am – 3.30pm.
  • A part time evening timetable delivered over a period of 42 weeks, 2 nights per week 6.15pm to 9.15pm and 6pm to 9pm for Zoom classes, plus 5 daytime sessions.
  • A Saturday timetable which is delivered over a period of approximately 54 weeks
  • A combined evening and Saturday course over a period of approximately 28 weeks.


EmployEase arranges 120 hours of work placement as part of the course. This is set in a local facility and gives you the opportunity to gain the hands-on experience which employers look for. Many students gain employment from their work placement provider and 80% of EmployEase students were employed after completing a course.

Please note: this only applied to students studying in Victoria. Students in South Australia will need to organise their own placement.
