  • Course description

    The training package requires completion of thirteen (13) units of
    competency:  

    ·   Eleven (11) are compulsory units of competency.
    ·   Two (2) are elective units of competency.
     
    TAFE NSW, on industry recommendation has added the unit of competency
    CHCCHILD1C, Identify and respond to children and young people at risk of

    qualification "Group 1" additional compulsory list. The unit could be one
    of two chosen from among a group of six (6) units as set out in the
    training package rules.

    complete two elective units of competency. Therefore the TAFE qualification
    requires completion of fourteen (14) units of competency:
