Open Colleges has been helping Australians realise their potential for over 125 years, and they're now one of Australia's leaders in online education. In the last decade alone, they've helped over 450,000 students gain the skills to launch, change or take the next step in their careers.
When you study with OC, you’ll graduate with a nationally recognised qualification that’ll help you find work across Australia. Their nationally recognised courses are designed by vocational experts, and you’ll learn job-ready skills from industry specialists.
Online learning is all about flexibility, so they’ve designed their learning platform to be as flexible as possible. It’s available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you can access it anytime you want. It’s designed to work around your lifestyle, not the other way around, so you can easily fit your study in with your other commitments.
The common misconception is that studying online means that you’re studying alone, but at Open Colleges, they take great pride in the superior support provided to their students. They make it easy for you to get support when you need it with their student support team available Monday to Friday via email, phone and Live Chat and on the weekends, via Live Chat (when available). They’re here, in tandem with trainers and assessors, to make sure you’re supported the whole way through your course, from the time you enrol right through to your graduation.
"Because it’s so flexible, it was easy for me to do it. I’ll be in the middle of an assignment and I can just pause it if my son is asking for lunch. I’ll quickly make him lunch or get a drink and I can just open it back up and go straight back into it to continue. The trainers have been great. They really try to get back to you on time and make sure they give you the best possible answers. They always seem to come back with a quick response."
"It’s given me a different mindset. I used to think you’d go out and do a job, like mechanics, for years and that you’d just get the qualification after years on the job. But with this, you can study for a couple of months and then you can go out into the world fully qualified and ready for the job and just go for it."
"I think the Open Colleges model is particularly good because you’re not tied down to due dates, you just have as much time as you need. You have people to get in touch with if you’re having trouble. I’ve actually had emails back at 10pm at night from my teacher. I’ve been sitting here and I’ve shot one off and they’ve got right back to me within that hour. You don’t get that anywhere."
"I am a farmer and I run a family farm with my husband. I was given the opportunity to study any course I wanted that would help our business, and that may help me earn some money off the land, so I chose to learn bookkeeping. The course is so useful and beneficial for our farm. It’s great to learn how to set journals out so our accountant can do the BAS and income tax, without them being all over the place."
"My job is probably best described as a medical equipment specialist. I educate and train people in the use of CT scanners onsite. Getting the skills to use in trainings, to substantiate the work I do is very valuable. The course has changed my work and the way I approach training courses. It’s made me more confident and I’ll be better at my job."
Upon successful completion of this course, you will receive a nationally recognised, accredited CHC43315 Certificate IV in Mental Health awarded by Integrated Care & Management Training Pty Ltd.
As public awareness of the impact of mental health issues continues to grow, so too do job opportunities within the support sector. By studying this online certificate, you'll gain the skills to become an asset to any mental health services organisation, and be capable of delivering effective assessment, rehabilitation and support to individuals in need. With the right combination of compassion and training, you could find yourself working in roles in both community and private settings.
