Are Chilton certificates recognised overseas?
In the past 17 years Chilton has seen many of its students successfully get jobs overseas through various methods and avenues around the world.
Is Chilton recognised under the South African Nursing Council?
Chilton courses do not fall under the nursing council sector.
Our courses are primarily focused on elderly care companions that also undertake meal planning, cooking and creative hobbies with the elderly persons.
All Chilton courses are short courses, focused on soft skills based in the domestic environment. Though many of our students have been hired here in facilities and overseas.
How long is the course?
Students do this in your own time and at your own pace entirely.. A few days to a few weeks.
What is the difference between Elderly Care Assistant/Nurse Aide and Special Needs?
The Elderly Care Assistant, Nurse Aide Course deals with frail elderly persons, not disabilities.
The Special Needs Course deals with disabilities, e.g. physical, emotional and intellectual challenges the adult or child may have. It is not an elderly care course.
When can I start?
Once we get proof of payment, you’ll start the same day.
Can I do a course if I am working full-time?
Yes, our courses can be taken full time or part time, depending on your schedule. You study in your own time, at your own pace.
What do I need for the course?
No requirements. We will need proof of payment along with your full name and ID no or passport no and email address. We accept any type of passport, your own country ID or asylum.
How do I get my original certificates?
The certificates you receive via email are original, meaning you print for the first time. Original means first print, not a copy. You get original certificates to print for the first time.
How do I print my certificates and practical work experience paperwork?
Go to a good printing shop/internet café. For SA students, we recommend Postnet for good quality printing.
Certificates: Ask for A4 colour and print on thin grade white card. We recommend printing at least two sets of your certificates and laminating one set to keep as your first print.
Practical Work Experience Paperwork and Testimonial Letter: Print in colour on normal A4 typing paper. You will need these for your practicals and job applications. Keep them in a file for future use.
Always attach copies of your certificates with your updated CV and typed references when applying for jobs.
How will I graduate?
All students are welcome to attend either Johannesburg or Cape Town graduations. Graduation is limited to these two main cities only. These are held 4 times a year. It’s a choice.
Graduations are posted on our Facebook page, Chilton Au Pair and Nanny Training College. Scroll down to view the latest graduation information and dates.
When is graduation?
The dates are posted on our Facebook page Chilton Au Pair and Nanny Training College.
We strongly recommend that all students open their own Facebook account, as many jobs are accessed through Facebook groups, as well as news from Chilton.
Can I graduate if I haven’t completed my practicals?
Yes, you can
Where can I get a uniform?
Google uniform shops closest to where you live. They are stocked country wide.
You must never approach a facility without your uniform on as that will give the wrong impression.
