About our Training

We offer accredited training programs. As a Registered Training Organisation No. 41231 with Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) we are able to deliver our approved qualifications across Australia. Students can enrol and commence training at any time in Sydney, ANTS also holds classes in the Hunter Region (specific venue details will be confirmed along with the training plan prior to enrolment).

Our Sydney classes are held in our training rooms in Sutherland and in accredited residential care facilities, so students will know from the start, the reality of working in the Aged, Disability, Health or Home and Community Care Services.

Classes in the Hunter region are held weekly in appropriate venues(specific venue details will be confirmed along with the training plan prior to enrolment) followed by work placement in accredited residential care facilities offering Aged, Disability, Health or Home and Community Care Services.

Theory and Practical

Our theory lessons provide the underpinning knowledge required to fully understand the essential skills you will need to demonstrate. Theory is delivered weekly in a face to face classroom environment. There is an expectation on all our programs that an average number of self-directed learning hours need to be completed, using learning materials we provide you.

We keep our class sizes small so learning is effective and students receive the personal tuition they require. Training is light hearted and lots of fun, but we maintain a high professional standard and have been committed to that since 1990.

We also provide a simulated training environment which is a component for all courses and we place a heavy emphasis on learning and practising workplace based competencies.

After the face to face theory and simulated training ANTS arranges WORK PLACEMENT  for students,which is mandatory requirement, to consolidate the learning and to conduct assessment.
