With an ageing population in Australia, the aged care industry is growing faster than any other sector. As such, aged care workers are increasingly in demand.

And, with average wages sitting at an impressive $85k per year, it can be a rewarding career in more ways than one.

If you’re keen to kickstart your career in aged care, the best way to get started is via an online aged care course. Here’s why. 

Online Courses Vs Formal Pathways 

In the past, pursuing a career in aged care could only be done via formal study pathways. This involved part-time or full-time attendance at a registered training organisation and could take up to 2 years to complete in person. Undoubtedly, acquiring the required skills through this route can be time-intensive and expensive.

However, these days there is a superior, more convenient, and cost-effective alternative available: online aged care courses.

For example, with OCA’s Job Ready Aged Care Bundle, you receive comprehensive training that prepares you for a job in aged care, all while enjoying the flexibility of self-paced learning (from wherever you are!)

It’s affordable, it’s fast, and it’s fun! We don’t use dense academic textbooks. Instead, we design digestible step-by-step modules and high-quality video sessions, backed by 24/7 tutorial support. The lessons are all taught on demand, and assessments are generally short-answer or multiple-choice and can be re-taken as many times as needed. 

Our online courses are perfect for people with busy lives and families who want to better themselves while unlocking better career opportunities.

The Benefits of an Online Aged Care Course

Flexible Learning

One of the most significant benefits of an online aged care course is its flexibility. It eliminates geographical constraints, allowing individuals from different regions, to access the required skills and knowledge.

There are no strict eligibility criteria; a genuine passion for making a difference is all that's needed.

Plus, the training is delivered through video-based modules, accessible on smartphones or tablets connected to the internet. This flexibility enables you to balance your studies with daily commitments, without the need for commuting or relocating.

High-Quality Education

Some may assume that online learning is inferior to traditional classroom education, but this is not the case.

OCA's training is industry-led and industry-recognised, created in collaboration with top experts in the field.

You'll learn how to provide direct care to elderly individuals from the best in the industry, equipping you for the many job opportunities in this growing sector.

Specialisation Opportunities

Once you enter the aged care support industry, you can specialise in specific areas that interest you, such as palliative residential care, dementia care, or disability support services.

Online learning allows you to acquire specialised knowledge and upskill as needed, making it valuable for both newcomers and those already in the industry
