- The on-the-job component occurs in your workplace, under the training support of a licensed dental operator working at their own clinic or dental practice.
- The off-the-job component includes lectures, online activities, workshops and practical labs.
When you’re on campus you’ll study in state-of-the-art facilities at the Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne.
You will also have access to the world-class Royal Melbourne Dental Hospital in Carlton. The onsite state-of-the-art facilities give you access to cutting-edge technology and techniques.
You will study in our fully operational dental simulation clinics which give you hands-on experience with intra-oral and extra-oral radiographs as well as clinical photography.
There are also student computer classrooms and lecture theatres onsite.
You’ll develop advanced chair-side assistance to support dental professionals as a dental assistant.
Your success in the Certificate IV in Dental Assisting will lead you toward becoming an integral part of dental health teams in private and public sector dental clinics and agencies.
