The Certificate III in Pathology Assistance is designed to provide graduates with the essential skills and knowledge required to work as an entry level Laboratory Assistant, or Specimen Reception Assistant, within the health sector, typically in a clinical environment within a hospital or a pathology laboratory.
The course will be delivered using a combination of traditional face-to-face and blended online learning. Specialised staff from Swinburne University of Technology will be engaged to deliver current, relevant and contemporary curriculum. The format of the course has been developed to allow students the opportunity to have their practical applications assessed whilst performing tasks which reflect holistic tasks reflective of typical workplace tasks through role plays, simulations and practical skill labs utilising the equipment within a laboratory.
