Course Rundown

The Certificate III in Health Services Assistance (HLT33115) reflects the role of a variety of workers who use a range of factual, technical and procedural knowledge to provide assistance to health professional staff for the care of clients. Health services assistance involves the worker in direct client contact under supervision.

Practical Placement

The course includes 120 hours of mandatory practical placement in Industry, which All Health Training organise on our students’ behalf.  The hours of work required within hospitals is usually in two shifts, the morning shift is from 7:00am – 3:00pm which is the preferred shift for our students to attend. Placement is preferred to be completed in a block, which means you have to attend continuously during weekdays.  Where your class is on a weekday, you will attend 4 days of placement and attend your regular class which means you will complete placement in 4 weeks. If your class is a Saturday or night class, you must attend 5 weekdays which means you will complete placement in 3 weeks. If there is a public holiday during your placement you must make those hours up at the end. When considering your placement dates please ensure that you have accommodated public holidays, potential absences due to illness and your class schedule.

Practical placement may be commenced after week 6 of the course and must be completed within 1 month after the course conclusion.


Students must meet the following entry requirements:

  • This is an open entry program of study with participants needing to read, write and communicate in English to a level to perform the job. Students will be required to complete a LLN evaluation to determine suitability.
  • Students must be over 18 years of age.
  • Police checks are required prior to commencing practical placement which we will organise on our students’ behalf. If a student has a Disclosable Court Outcome registered against their name, we are unable to assist with placement as industry will not accept students without a clear record. This requirement is not negotiable.
  • Students are required to obtain an employee Working with Children’s check (WWC) to commence placement.  This is at the students own cost.
  • Students are required to be able to access a computer which will allow use of a USB.
