Certificate IV in Bereavement Support (22271VIC)

Mode of Delivery: Online

Projected Course Completion: 12 Months

The Certificate IV in Bereavement Support (22271VIC ) is an online course designed for those who have a role in providing bereavement and loss support. The skills and knowledge provided by the course cover a rage of different situations and environments and may be for a specific bereavement support job role, or complement other job roles, such as those of nurses, aged care workers and teachers.

This competency-based course places emphasis on what the learner can do in the workplace as a result of their training, with successful learners being able to perform workplace activities to industry standards.

The course offers a holistic approach to industry activities. While bereavement care and support work is the main focus of the course, the content also incorporates communication, capacity building and quality management and explores specific workplace duties as found in the real workplace environment.


The course consists of 11 compulsory units. Four units (highlighted in bold in the table below), focusing on bereavement care and support, have been developed by the Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement using our significant in-house expertise, and in consultation with industry representatives. The remaining units have been imported from existing training package qualifications into the Certificate IV in Bereavement Support and contextualised for the loss and bereavement field.
