Certificate IV in Mental Health – Fast Track
Underpinned by the philosophy of recovery oriented practice, this course aims to build understanding and practical skills in working with people with mental health problems.
The Fast Track option allows workers with at least two years’ professional experience to complete the Certificate IV in Mental Health (CHC43315) qualification in just six face-to-face training days.
The course draws on previous work experience to consolidate and build workers skills. Because of the small time commitment, this is a great opportunity for existing workers looking to gain qualifications and continue to improve their practice.
Certificate IV in Mental Health has been endorsed as a voluntary entry-level qualification by the community mental health sector. The training provides an opportunity for participants to build on their on-the-job experience and receive a nationally recognised qualification in mental health.
