Meet Kienan Appley

Kienan works at an aged care facility in remote Northern Territory. When the opportunity came up for him to get a qualification, while still working, he decided to take it.

"I really like my job. I'm always interacting with residents in my role at the aged care centre in Borroloola, so I thought 'if I already do some things, I may as well know everything', and my boss decided to sign me up for the course at CDU."

Kienan is studying Certificate III in Aged Care through CDU, and as part of his course he travels to Katherine Rural campus to complete study units.

"I really enjoy studying at the Katherine rural campus because the trainers and mentors concentrate on you, and help you get through your studies stress-free.

"After I get my Certificate III, I can probably get a job in any aged care facility. And I could travel with my skills too.

So what's his advice for anyone wanting to start this course?

"My only advice to other students wanting to study this course at CDU is to study hard."
