Image_1Aust’s 1st proper AIN Course

Established in 1990, ANTS was the first to offer Assistant in Nursing training (AIN) in Australia. We specialise in providing training that will give you the skills and expertise to be able to gain employment in the health care sector as an AIN or Personal Care Assistant (PCA).

Image_2Practical Training in REAL Situations

Our training is completed via practical tuition. It is delivered in accredited residential care facilities with real people. Students will receive hands on, one on one practical training. The high degree of practical knowledge you gain makes the theory easier to understand. Classes are held in our simulated clinical rooms and in residential care facilities, tying in the practical with the theory and assessment. An Independent Learning Environment is also involved and this blended type of delivery caters for each student as an individual.

I did the Certificate III training many years ago as I needed work.Sister Jones encouraged me all the way up the career ladder and I am now a Registered Nurse in one of the busiest hospitals in the country.In my opinion their unique hands on style training is the main reason they are the most popular. I thank Sister Jones from the bottom of my heart.

Thank you for your professionalism and comprehensive course content. Our staff member stated that he feels ready to fulfil his duties which is more than I can say for other workers I have put through previous first aid courses. I hope to deal with Australian Nursing and Training Services again in the future for all our training courses.

Scott Montgommery - Jaybro Civil and Safety Products

I recently immigrated to Australia from Thailand and did not think that I could get a job here.  I completed the course and while  English is not my native language I passed and was immediately given work as an AIN. Thank you ANTS for helping me to get a career.
