  • In a Nutshell

    The Certificate III in Health Services Assistance (HLT33115) reflects the role of a variety of workers who use a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge to provide assistance to health professional staff for the care of clients. Health services assistance involves the worker in direct client contact under supervision.

    Practical Placement

    The course includes 120 hours of mandatory practical placement in Industry, which All Health Training organise on our students' behalf.  The hours of work required within hospitals is usually in two shifts, the morning shift is from 7:00am - 3:00pm which is the preferred shift for our students to attend. Placement is preferred to be completed in a block, which means you have to attend continuously during weekdays.  Where your class is on a weekday, you will attend 4 days of placement and attend your regular class which means you will complete placement in 4 weeks. If your class is a Saturday or night class, you must attend 5 weekdays which means you will complete placement in 3 weeks. If there is a public holiday during your placement you must make those hours up at the end. When considering your placement dates please ensure that you have accommodated public holidays, potential absences due to illness and your class schedule.

    Practical placement may be commenced after week 6 of the course and must be completed within 1 month after the course conclusion.
