    Intakes are not till July 2013.
    Would you recommend I do a cert 3 in aged care to help get in?
    Any ideas?
    Thanks girls

    Yes i would probably recommend doing the cert 3 first. I've found there is so much assumed knowledge with the diploma.
    Also to register with ahpra once you have finished your course requires completetion of yr 12 or a cert 3. Unless it varies between states?

    I did an intro to nursing at tafe and when I passed the units got automatic entry into the diploma maybe see if a tafe near you offers the intro course I know Caboolture qld does.

    Yes I have rung caboolture, only issue is there full time program is 4-5 days.
    I can go through careers australia and its only 2 and a half days.
    I have 2 kids to put into daycare.
    So unfortunately it's a money thing.
    I wonder if I should just go with careers australia?
    How much study is involved as well.

    I only go to TAFE one full day and 2 half days a week. We have 3 theory sessions and one prac session. We've only had one a&p test so far and it was open book.
    All the study you really have to do on your own- we don't really learn anything at TAFE.
    We have to do 400 hours of prac over the year.
    Guess each course provider is going to vary though.

    At caboolture the intro is only 2 days a week and the diploma is 3 and a half days a week. $8000 or there about for both courses. It's about min 10hrs study a week. I would go with tafe. You have more if a chance getting into the diploma via the intro course then straight entry anywhere else. Good luck with whichever you choose.

    Jensha,

    Are you studying through caboolture?
    I might go there.
    I'm just waiting for them to get back to me with starting dates for the introduction course.
