Philippines Aged Care Student Gets Great Insights at Challenger
Born in the Philippines, international student Brent Miguel Perez has found great value in his Aged Care studies at
South Metropolitan TAFE.
Brent chose to study at Challenger after reading about their high quality training and hearing how well they help international students adapt to life in Australia. The Orientation day for international students was particularly valuable as it covered basic necessities like accommodation, transport, safety, banking and more.
Lecturers at Challenger have also supported Brent by sharing the experiences they've had, both in the industry and in their time as students.
Having just finished the six-month course Certificate III in Aged Care, he plans to follow a pathway to the Certificate IV in Aged Care and then a Diploma in Community Services. As a registered nurse in the Philippines, Brent says that Aged Care is closely related to basic nursing skills.
