KM Training & Consulting is the marketing and referral partner for RTO 21132 Stirling Institute of Australia
The Certificate IV in Disability prepares students for work in a range of roles in community settings and clients’ homes in one of the fastest growing sectors. Disability support workers train and support those with disabilities to become more independent and self-reliant, to participate more in community and to experience greater levels of well being. 
Working without direct supervision, workers promote a person-centered approach and may be required to supervise and coordinate small teams. Stirling Institute of Australia’s Certificate IV in Disability is a nationally recognised qualification.
As part of the Certificate IV in Disability, you will take part in the following activities:
  • An organised industry work placement (minimum of 120hrs)
  • Ability to apply your skills in our practical training environment
  • 35 weeks duration course
What does the work placement involve?
As part of the Certificate IV in Disability, you will complete an organised industry work placement of at least 120 hours. This involves “real” work experience gained within a “real” working environment. Student placements provide students with the opportunity to apply the theory and skills they learned while studying in a professional workplace. 
We have partnerships with employers that are ready to take our students on for work placement.
To ensure an appropriate learning opportunity, candidates need to demonstrate a capacity to undertake study at Certificate IV level. This can be demonstrated via the following:
