Hi Marg,

My boss's sister just finished her Cert III in Disability and never looked back! She's got heaps more flexibility now in her schedule - and can choose shifts.

I think aged care is like that as well, and you can go casual or full-time. My boss's dad was in a home for years before he passed, and the carers there were really lovely in helping out when his family couldn't care for him.

His sister studied with Inspire Education. She was able to study online while still working for Bunnings which was cool. Now she's qualified as far as I can remember.

Anyway, they're at if you want to know where to do a course. You can keep working then and get qualified at the same time. They do disability care and aged care, but I think disability care there's a lot more lifting - so depends how strong you are etc.

Hope that helps.
