This course can help you open up career opportunities you’ve always dreamed of – possibilities include:

  • Care Coordinator
  • Disability Coordinator
  • Disability Support Worker
  • Development Officer
  • Behavioural Support Officer
  • Senior Personal Care Assistant

Graduates of MCIE’s disability training courses learn crucial skills, such as how to work effectively with people with a disability, how to maintain an environment to empower people with disabilities, how to facilitate skills development, community participation, and provide behaviour support in the context of individualised plans.

The Certificate IV in Disability qualification will provide individuals with a meaningful career where they can help disabled people achieve greater levels of independence, self-reliance and community participation. It also allows workers to go about their day to day job without direct supervision, reporting to service managers.
