According to the Australian government’s Job Outlook website, the number of job openings for Medical Receptionists are expected to be greater than 50,000 by November 2019*. The demand in the health care sector for health and medical administrators will increase over the next few years. Health administration training is essential to gain the employment advantage.

Combining communication, customer service and technical skills, the Certificate III in Health Administration reflects the role of administrative workers and medical receptionists. This nationally accredited qualification provides you with entry level certification to begin your health administration career and set yourself apart from other candidates.

This course will teach you how to maintain patient and financial records, manage information and resources and contribute to innovation in the workplace. The Certificate III in Health Administration equips you with knowledge of medical terminology and allows you to develop an understanding of how to implement infection control policies and work health and safety processes.
