Who can apply?
All workers in specialist ACT AOD services that do not have existing health, social or behavioural science tertiary qualifications are required to undertake this training, as set out in the ACT Alcohol and Other Drug Qualification Strategy.
About the training
The Remaining Units consist in the non-AOD content of the Certificate IV in Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD).
To complete the Remaining Units, workers must undertake 12 core and elective units from the Certificate IV in Alcohol and Other Drugs. Upon successful completion of the Remaining Units, each worker will be provided with a nationally-recognised Statement of Attainment off all the competencies completed and a testamur at completion of the qualification (i.e. when evidence of completion of the AOD Skill Set is provided). It is expected that workers will undertake all 12 of the Remaining Units.
The units will be delivered in 3-day (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday) blocks over 3 months. In total, workers will undertake 9 full days of training to obtain the remaining units from the Certificate IV in Alcohol and Other Drug (not including the AOD Skill Set), commencing on Monday 26 March 2018. The full list of dates is included in the information package. The training will be delivered by the Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) at the CIT Bruce campus. Training fees are fully subsidised by ATODA with funding from ACT Health.
