About Amana Living Training Institute
Amana Living Training Institute (ALTI) is a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and a division of leading WA aged care organisation Amana Living Inc.
ALTI has been providing training since 1998, and Amana Living has served the community since 1962, so you can be assured of our expertise in care training and delivery.
All students are trained by experts who are all practising health care professionals. We have delivered quality accredited and non-accredited training to thousands of Western Australians over the past two decades. People who train with us benefit from face-to-face, hands-on training by highly skilled staff who have all worked in the health and aged care sectors.
ALTI provides training and qualifications in Certificate III in Individual Support (ageing and home and community care, disability), Certificate IV in Ageing Support, accredited short courses and skills sets.
ALTI customises its training to meet the changing needs of the care industry. By working closely with aged and disability care providers, training organisations and industry partners, we understand that employers want staff who are practically trained.
Our ability to assist students with work placements and possible employment opportunities in our own centres also sets us apart from other training providers in WA. This delivers tremendous benefit to the student as they can put into practice the lessons they’ve learnt in the classroom, as well as work alongside experienced professionals.
All qualifications are nationally recognised and acknowledged by all Government organisations and other care providers in Australia, meaning the qualification is transferable across the country. Plus, programs are compliant with Registered Training Organisation (RTO) standards and regulations.
In addition to training public students and our own staff, we also offer courses to other aged care and disability service providers, and individual employees. For charitable and volunteer organisations, ALTI offers a strong and reliable alternative to standard training providers.
The Amana Living Training Institute (ALTI) is currently delivering free COVID-19 infection control training to eligible West Australians and businesses, as well as cutting the cost of its accredited certificate courses in aged and disability care, and allied health by up to 75 per cent. As part of the WA Government’s Lower Fees Local Skills program, the subsided courses give students the practical skills they need to start or further their careers.
As well as delivering training for entry level roles, Amana Living Training Institute runs a graduate program in conjunction with Edith Cowan University. The program aims to nurture the next generation of aged care managers and leaders by developing clinical and leadership skills and provide new career pathways for nurses and allied health professionals.
Excellence in training
ALTI has developed a reputation for quality learning and heavily invests in its team of trainers, who are mostly skilled clinicians. Our trainers are supported by an expert team of learning developers and other back-office staff to ensure quality products, delivery and compliance.
The organisation has worked hard to provide attractive roles for trainers and is an employer of choice. We seek experienced clinicians wanting a career in learning and support them to achieve the Certificate IV in Training and Assessment (TAE) qualification with Training Services Australia, an RTO that specialises in the delivery of TAE.
Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety
The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety was established in October 2018 to
look at how older people are cared for and work out what needs to change to make aged care services better.
A final report was published in March 2021 and the Commonwealth Government responded to the recommendations with a $17.7 billion package delivering reform through five pillars over five years.
Workforce is one of the five pillars, with investment including:
up to 13,000 new personal care workers in the sector over 2021/22 followed by continued growth to meet demand;
33,800 additional training places over 2 years for personal care workers to attain a Cert III in Individual Support (Ageing), with additional places planned for 2023 on; and
increased training in dementia care and minimising restraint.
In addition to these improvements, reform across the remaining four pillars will impact the workforce. For example, the release of 80,000 home care packages will further drive workforce demand and require the sector to consider how to attract the talent required to deliver these essential services.
Plus, the 33,800 additional training places over two years for personal care workers to attain a Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing) should provide 3,380 additional training places in Western Australia.
To support the recommendations, it is expected that the Commonwealth will undertake a marketing campaign to promote jobs and careers in the aged care sector, as well as training places in Certificate III in Individual Support (Ageing).
The ongoing focus by the Government on the aged care workforce and the investment in the sector will ensure it continues to be one of Australia’s largest service industries, offering a variety of career opportunities for Australians.
