HLT41115 – Certificate IV in Health Care

Course Overview

HLT41115 – Certificate IV in Health Care Units

The Certificate IV is the essential qualification you need to work in the private sector and respond to and treat patients who require urgent medical attention.

The provision of urgent clinical care includes providing basic life support procedures to sustain life. You will be qualified to work in a wide range of private sector jobs such as ambulance officers, patient transport officers, industrial medics and basic life support medics.

To achieve this qualification, you are required to complete at least 80 hours of supervised clinical placement. Think of this as work experience – we can assist with placement  in your area too. You also must attend a 7 day clinical workshop in either QLD, VIC or NSW  – but not until after 8-10 months of study has been completed.

This qualification has been assessed by ASQA (Australian Skills Quality Authority) and the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF).

The units you will study can be found on the government website at www.training.gov.au.
