Russell Buckney commenced training at DOME in July 2015 in the innovative combined Certificate III in Aged Care, Disability and Home and Community Care course which was funded through the Department of State Development, Strategic Employment Fund program.
Russell came from a background in factory and security work so this was a real career shift and a steep learning curve.
With completion of the theoretical part of the training in October 2015, Russell then commenced his five week work placement with Bonney Healthcare and Infin8 Care Group in Christies Beach South Australia.
On successful completion of his work placement he was offered a position as a casual carer at Bonney Healthcare and within four weeks, Russell was offered a permanent fulltime position.
Russell said it was the best career change he could have made and he enjoys the job satisfaction in the service delivery to the elderly and the support from Bonney Healthcare and Infin8 Healthcare Group.
Russell has just won the award for “Staff Member of the Month” for April, for his outstanding support, diligence and high standards in care in all areas.
DOME congratulates Russell on not only his successful completion of the course, but also his strong work ethic which is acknowledged by this award.
Well done Russell!CONTACT USLOOKING FOR STAFFTRAINING SERVICES
