Allied Health Assistance Courses


For as long as I can remember, I’ve been interested in nutrition. I’ve always been a very healthy person, helped in part by my mother who is a dietician. When I finished high school I still wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, and I enrolled in a TAFE simply because I couldn’t think of an alternative. I was doing a course that was somewhat related, exercise science, but after a few weeks I realised this wasn’t for me and I left at the end of the term.
A little lost, I had a search online for nutrition or dietetic courses and I came across Acquire Learning. I’d actually heard of them before – my dad is a lifelong Carlton fan and I remember him talking about how Acquire Learning are their new biggest sponsor. Anyway, I browsed through their site and watched a few videos on their YouTube channel and came across their Allied Health assistance courses, which seemed perfect. The courses would give me a chance to work alongside allied health professionals as their assistance, which I’m hoping one day will qualify me to work in the industry as a professional myself. I called up Acquire Learning and spoke with one of their career advisors for a good half an hour and I ended up enrolling after we got off the phone. My career advisor, Adam, told me everything I needed to know – course requirements, course duration and units, what I’d be studying, everything.
I enrolled in the Certificate III, and if that all goes well then after 18 months I can then enrol in the certificate IV. Acquire Learning are quite different to the traditional tertiary studies, like uni and TAFE and so forth. They really tailor everything they do to suit each individual student and you’re guaranteed to get the most out of your studies. No one falls by the wayside, or at least that’s the impression I get so far. Adam has already given me a follow up call just to make sure that the enrolment process went well, and I’ve already bought my textbooks and study materials. Oh, and I haven’t even mentioned the best part! I can study the units online so I’m no having to trek into campus each morning and night, so that’s already a huge relief – I don’t have a car at the moment, so I wasn’t looking forward to 2 hours a day on the train.
I start the course in about a month, and I’m really excited. It’s the first time in a long time that I’ve been motivated to study, and I just wish I hadn’t wasted so much time in deciding to do what I really wanted to do. But here’s to looking forward. If everything goes to plan then I’ll be qualified within 3 years and well on my way to forging myself a career I actually care about. If you’re a little lost, too, it couldn’t hurt to check out this Acquire LEarning article – or you can find them over at
