Government Funded Aged Care Course - Student

“With government funding, completing the Aged Care course has been easy and trouble free. It would have been difficult to start, or to even consider the course if it were not for the government funding and assistance. The Aged Care course has been very professionally conducted, they have shown an interest in my experiences with them and have been more than helpful with my learning.”
