Health Courses

Do you want to improve the lives and health of people in need? Do you like the idea of working in the community? A career in healthcare ranges from aged care to dietetics to medical administration work and everything in between, providing you with numerous career opportunities. If working within a dynamic and highly rewarding industry sounds like you, completing a health course with an RTO is your next step. 

Healthcare industry outlook

The Australian health industry covers a variety of sectors such as mental health, public health, nutrition, allied health assistance and dentistry. The healthcare industry encompasses both practical health assistance and health administration career pathways, so no matter your skill set or passion, there’s a role for you.

It’s important to keep in mind that working in healthcare can be challenging. Long shifts, late nights and sometimes even weekend work is standard practice. On the other hand, you won’t find a more gratifying and rewarding career to earn a living! 

Australia’s healthcare industry currently employs over 1.7 million people, which is projected to grow to almost 1.9 million by 2024. Disability care services, welfare support services and allied health services such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy make up large portions of these numbers. This makes it the single largest employing industry in the country. 

Careers in healthcare

Although the healthcare industry is responsible for some of the highest paid roles in Australia – such as general practitioners who make an average of $156,000 or surgeons who make an average of $191,196 — there are also additional careers that are not as demanding, nor require extensive training and education. 

Roles within health research, nutrition, healthcare policy creation and administration are just as necessary and essential to the well being of Australia‘s healthcare industry.

Some great careers in health that you could be a part of include:

Health courses

An impressive 75% of those working in Australia’s healthcare industry have some form of higher education training. Courses range from TAFE certificates to university level qualifications such as a Bachelor of health science. The best way to get trained up depends on where you’d like your career to take you, though whether you’re fresh out of school, looking to change careers or simply want to expand upon your skills, one of our courses will have all your needs covered.

Certificate courses

Certificate III and Certificate IV courses provide a fantastic introduction to the industry and offer a great stepping-stone into entry-level roles, such as patient care attendant roles or roles within dental assisting

Whether you’re looking for more specialised training, such as a Certificate III in Dental Assistance, or something more general to develop a basic grasp of the industry, such as a Certificate IV in Health Services Assistance; there’s plenty on offer. 

Some practical skills you can develop in these courses include patient observation techniques and evaluations. You will also develop a thorough understanding of medical terminology used across the industry. 

Diploma courses

If you have your sights set on a career as a health and welfare services manager, mental health outreach worker or envision becoming a practice manager one day, a Diploma level healthcare course can fast-track your career goals. Diploma courses in health allow you to acquire specialised knowledge while building your practical and theoretical understanding of healthcare operations. 

Bachelor degree

Bachelor courses in healthcare offer ideal preparation for more challenging, higher level health professional roles, such as dieticians, toxicologists or enrolled nurses. If you plan on becoming a Registered Nurse, then this three-year program is mandatory; however, if you have completed a Diploma of Nursing already, it will count towards your credits and lessen your time spent studying, thus making it an attractive option for recent Diploma graduates.

If further study is of interest to you, or you just want to get more training under your belt, a Graduate Diploma is a great education option.

Is a health course right for me?

Careers in health require a particular type of person, as roles often involve working directly with individuals who are frail, sick, injured or in a state of crisis. Having genuine empathy, compassion and respect for others are essential for this challenging and highly gratifying job. 

To support these important people-skills, you will need to complete formal education to develop the necessary hard and soft skills required of healthcare workers, no matter your sector of choice. 

Most health courses offer both full-time and part-time study options, as well as an online course delivery method. Online courses give students the flexibility to learn and study around other responsibilities, without the strict timetable. It’s important to note, however, that many health courses have a work placement requirement that must be conducted in-person. 

If starting a highly rewarding career in healthcare sounds up your alley, enquire about a health course today to start your journey!
