CHC32015 Certificate III in Community Services

About the Certificate III in Community Services course

Community services workers are typically employed by community centres and organisations 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. Our CHC32015 Certificate III in Community Services course teaches students how to provide support to vulnerable members of society, whilst also providing a foundation for the diploma course in community services, if they wish to continue their studies.

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. Our CHC32015 Certificate III in Community Services course is current at training.gov.au.

The CHC32015 Certificate III in Community Services will take roughly 6 – 12 months to complete and is to be undertaken online with the help of trainer support. This makes the course suitable for those working full time, as students can work at their own pace and complete the modules outside of work hours.
