The Certificate III in Health Support Services will teach you the skills to provide valuable support to patients in the health and community services sector.

Job titles may include:

- Support Services Worker

This course includes an integrated practical placement component of a minimum of 80 - 120 hours. Students who enrol in this course generally complete practical placement with Peninsula Health, Dandenong Valley Hospital or Monash Health.

This course will require you to undergo a National Police Check and Working with Children Check for practical placement. Practical placement may not be possible if a check that is carried out contains adverse outcomes.
