CHC43315 Certificate IV in Mental Health

No-one needs to suffer alone.

Almost half of all Australians will experience a mental illness in their lifetime. This figure is growing – and, in response, so is the demand for mental health workers to help address this national crisis.

The CHC43315 Certificate IV in Mental Health will equip you with the skills to help people touched by mental illness get their lives back on track, while opening the door to plenty of job opportunities in this challenging and rewarding field.

And because the Jobs & Skills WA recognises the demand in this area, this nationally recognised course is heavily subsidised under their Jobs & Skills WA program – meaning you’ll be on your way to a fulfilling new career without having to worry about the costs involved.

This course is delivered via face-to-face training for Jobs and Skills WA students. For non JaSWA students, all learning resources will be available online. A trainer will be assigned to guide and support you throughout your studies, and will be able to offer help and advice.

The CHC43315 Certificate IV in Mental Health is 8 months face to face (through Jobs and Skills WA) or 6 months online.

This qualification requires the completion of 15 units, including assignments. You’ll be required to undertake a mandatory work placement of at least 80 hours, which will give you valuable experience in the sector.

TrainSmart Australia will assess a student’s ‘academic suitability’ to ensure the student has the best chance of success. This is determined by either:

  • The student providing TrainSmart Australia with a copy of an Australian year 12 certificate; or,
  • The student providing TrainSmart Australia with a copy of a Certificate IV qualification (or above) that can be verified or,
  • The student completing the Core Skills Profile for Adults online assessment passing at or above Exit Level 3 in the Australian Core Skills Framework in both reading and numeracy.

All prospective learners will attend a mandatory face to face career counselling session to assess their suitability for this Certificate IV level qualification.

The widespread shortage of mental health workers means there is a strong demand for people qualified in this field. Types of roles available include outreach worker, community worker and mental health worker. Upon the completion of the CHC43315 Certificate IV in Mental Health you will also be well placed to undertake further study.
