What our Students Say

Australian Training Professionals provided comprehensive and easy to
use course materials for my
Certificate III course in Education Support... I found out about Australian Training Professionals through a
friend and would likewise recommend them to others.
 The orientation was excellent - especially for someone like me who hadn't done formal training / coursework for many years. SH

What Our Students Say

I choose Australian training professionals to complete certificate 3 and certificate 4 in education support as I could complete the units by correspondence. This worked into my busy schedule as a working mum. I thoroughly recommend the courses and I have since gained employment within the education department. 


What our Students Say

The flexibility of the study required to complete the course, worked well for me as it allowed me the time necessary to attend my family’s needs… I would not hesitate to recommend Australian Training Professionals to anyone else. Sue Mc

Certificate IV in Education Support (CHC40213)

Thank you for your interest in Certificate IV in Education Support (CHC40213) with Australian Training Professionals.

There is currently a huge demand for Education Assistants to help teachers in schools by providing classroom support to students with a wide range of severe learning, physical and or behavioural difficulties. Assistants may work in a special school or in a mainstream school.

Some of the topics covered are;  Children with learning Disabilities, Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and children who have Language, Literacy and Numeracy needs.
