Online Study Course For Cert 3/Diploma

Hi
I am currently working but would like to study either a Cert 3 or Diploma online and change careers. I have looked into Inspire but found bad reviews for them. I made enquiries with Tafe but the cost was too much, Cert 3 is $2000 and Diploma is $6000 and that is with the subsidy. Anyone else studied online and any recommendations.

Thanks

First off I would recommend you study the Diploma qualification. The Cert 3 units are embedded into it so you can be a cert 3 qualified educator when you complete those specific units within the Diploma itself and then continue onto the Diploma. Also, the Diploma gives you more job opportunities and a higher level of responsibilities...

As for which course provider, you would like to go with it's completely your call. You would probably need to call a few course providers and find out which one suits your needs. Everyone has different experiences with course providers so reviews can be taken lightly.

Hi,

This is my first post,

I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction for certificate III in early childhood education and care - children health and safety , question 6.Question - "As a childcare worker, you will need to help provide suitable rest and sleep environments for children. For each of the following points, describe why those are important and what you would check to ensure the rest environment is set up appropriately"

I have ventilation, lighting but was hoping someone could point me in the right direction for hygiene and safety ?

Kind regards
Beth

Thanks for your response. I read the link but it does not go into any details about hygiene and safety with detail to importance and checks that need to be done? could someone point me in the right direction as to where this might be so I can read up on it ??

Thanks
Beth

Safety:

Encourage children to dress appropriately for the room temperature when resting or sleeping. Lighter clothing is preferable, with children encouraged to remove shoes, jumpers, jackets and bulky clothing. The room temperature will be considered to ensure maximum comfort for the children.

Encourage the use of sleeping bags for babies. If they have fitted neck and armholes there is no risk for the child’s face being covered.

Securely lock cots sides into place to ensure children’s safety.

Turn off wall-mounted heaters before children use the room for sleeping. Cot rooms will be air conditioned and maintained at an appropriate temperature.

Be aware of manual handling practices when lifting babies in and out of cots.

Participate in staff development about safe sleeping practices. The education and care service will access the SIDS & Kids resource kit and provide information to families on safe sleeping practices.

Follow SIDS guidelines recommending that necklace/bracelets (including Amber Teething Necklaces) must be removed while the infant sleeps at day or night. Necklaces and bracelets are a choking hazard.
