The Certificate III in Individual Support is designed to specialise in Disability care work and provides training to entry level workers who want to work in disability care in community based organisations and in particular within the NDIS. This qualification reflects the role of workers in the community and/or residential setting who follow an individualised plan for provision of person-centred care to people who may require support due to disability.
