Workers have a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge, as well as some theoretical knowledge of the concepts and practices required to provide person-centred support. 13 units must be completed, 10 core units and 3 elective units.
To achieve this qualification, students must have completed at least 120 hours of work as detailed in the Assessment Requirements of the units of competency.
