A quick note to let you know that this morning’s session was the highlight of my week. Enthusiastic students, good questions & discussion. They’ll be great assets to the Aged Care sector.
I found the workplace to apply what I have learned in APSI and this is at Fiona Stanley Hospital. If you are considering to study in Perth, I would highly recommend to study at Australian Professional Skills Institute as they will not only give you the qualification you desire but also will give you more of what you expect.
Studying the certificate III in Aged Care gave me the skills and knowledge to provide services to the elderly and disabled. I found that this is a very meaningful course as I'm a person who is very caring, I like to take care of people and help the elderly or disabled people. After the course in APSI, we were sent to different places for work experience. I am very happy about that as I can finally earn some experience even if I do not get paid. I was offered a job after the work placement and I would recommend this course to someone who wants to help older people to maintain their independence.
APSI provides good quality teaching. I am able to learn faster in a small class as I can ask for help when I face difficulties. The trainers are very friendly and teach us very patiently. I also get to know people from different countries.
Since I have nursing background I liked to broaden my knowledge and develop my skills. There are different things in comparison to Europe and the industry in Australia is so different that Aged Care is a good introduction to go back to nursing. I am happy with the way of learning in APSI. It is funny, teachers are precise with the explanation, they encourage us to work together and develop good communication skills, especially as international students. In addition to that, the assignments are really helpful to learn English and specific topics of our field.
