The Certificate IV in Allied Health Assistance is appropriate for new or Certificate III qualified allied health assistants who wish to further develop their professional skills. An assistant works under the delegation of the degreed professional (whether it be the Speech Pathologist, Physiotherapist, Occupational Therapist or other allied health professional) in a rich variety of settings to promote participation in and achievement of functional independence in activity.

Clients are from a range of ages with varying presentations including physical disabilities, medical conditions, mental health ailments, ageing, developmental disability, communication difficulties and/or social disadvantage. The assistant may gain employment in both public and private health settings such as community rehabilitation centres, public hospitals, aged care facilities, schools, mental health clinics, private practices and community health centres.  This qualification elevates skills and knowledge from the Certificate III to allow for greater management over self and supervision of other allied health assistants.
