Lockdown in the disability and support sector doesn’t mean an end to training
Virtual classroom course delivery enables you to continue to train your support workers.
By working extensively with the disability and individual support sector over many years, Premium Health – through our nurse educators – is able to deliver training which complies with the NDIS High Intensity Daily Personal Activities (HIDPA) requirements.
The Premium Health suite of health care courses assist our clients to not only effectively support those within their care, but also assist our clients to meet their NDIS compliance requirements during lockdown.
We offer an extensive range of courses for the support sector, including our most popular courses below.

Our Health Care programs are only ever conducted by a nurse or paramedic, as we believe there is no better trainer than one who has lived the experience firsthand. As a trusted health professional, they will teach the ‘why’ of your course and are committed to your learning.
