Certificate III Community Services

About the course

Community services workers are typically employed by community centres and organizations that focus on community outreach and care. They are a type of human services worker, which is a term used to describe a wide array of jobs that focus on providing care, support and counselling to individuals dealing with issues such as adult day-care, substance abuse, human relationships and rehabilitation.

A community services worker’s clients often include pregnant teens, homeless people, families and the elderly. Most of a community services worker’s duties are conducted in an office environment, and potential employers may include halfway houses, housing programs supported by state and local governments and group homes. This course is current at training.gov.au.
