Completing a certificate course of study will enable you to gain a nationally recognised qualification in your chosen field in the Health (Health Training Package) or Community Services Training Package (Community Services Training Package). 

In consultation with our Student Services Team, we consider your previous experience and learner background to best advise you on a learning journey with Amana Living Training Institute.

Our Nationally Recognised Training meets industry and vocational training competency standards, and will prepare you for work or further study.


The duration of course varies based on AQF guidelines outlined in the HLT and CHC Community Services Training Package. This information can be found under each course categories. This is based on the time required by someone who does not hold any of the competencies identified in the relevant units of competency or modules.

Most of the qualifications under Health and CHC Community Services Package have a mandatory work placement as part of the qualification, which can vary from 100 to 120 hours of work placement.

Some students may already hold employment in a care related role and may wish to use some of their recent work to count as part of their placement hours. Please speak to our Student Service Team to assess your situation.
