Why study with us?
CHC43515 Certificate IV in Mental Health Peer Work is the national qualification that is required to work as a qualified Lived Experience (Peer) worker.
By offering this nationally recognised training in regional SA, we hope to address current workforce shortages that exist within the mental health, suicide prevention and disability sectors in rural and remote communities.

With learner retention rates of over 80% in the last cohort, and 75% employment outcomes, we are well on our way to continue paving the path for a highly skilled and responsive peer workforce.
