APS Practice Certificate in Services for Older Adults

The APS Institute, with extensive curriculum input from the APS Psychology and Ageing Interest Group (PAIG), has developed an APS Practice Certificate in Services for Older Adults, which is available fully in the online course mode. The content of this practice certificate has been selected and assembled to enable psychologists and other allied health professionals to gain further knowledge of, and insight into, normal and pathological ageing, and to up skill practitioners in providing services for older adults. The Practice Certificate consists of four separate online courses that account for a total of 32 hours of CPD. Courses can also be selected and taken individually. In addition to receiving a certificate of completion for each course completed successfully, enrolees who successfully complete all four courses receive the APS Practice Certificate in Services for Older Adults to acknowledge their completion of this extended program of training.
