Very interesting course with support and guidance from academic staff. I did however find it very difficult to secure placement.

CourseCertificate IV in Allied Health Assistance
Completion date2018
Study modeOn-campus
The online to studying was excellent to have conversations with teachers and other students answers. The powerpoint theory listening to the teacher being a visual viewer really enjoyed, I had trouble booting Internet to comment back and forward question & answering, it was difficult in the remote areas working at. Would be helpful to talking to the district your working in to understand Certificate IV in what is needed (e.g.work plan).
