Once you have completed the Cert III you are able to move onto the Cert IV in Preparation for Health & Nursing Studies. Completion of Cert IV will allow you to satisfy University Entry Requirements to most Universities. 

Minimum Requirements
Students are provided content, videos, podcasts, activities, excursions, incursions as well as case studies and scenarios in our online environment, followed by time in the classroom to put their knowledge and skills into practice. You must have your own device (tablet or laptop etc) to access your course.
