Where and how will my course be delivered?
Theory assessments are completed online by students and results are submitted through the Student Portal.
The Practical and Third Party Report components within the course are to be assessed at one of our state wide workshops with our qualified assessors.
Workshops are held on weekends and during school holidays where possible so a student’s school attendance is not impacted. We have qualified assessors in different locations throughout Queensland.
Who will assess my Practical & Third Party Report Assessments?
There is a Practical component to the course that is mandatory and must be completed at one of our state wide workshops with our qualified assessors. These workshops are held on weekends and during school holidays so as not to interfere with the students’ school week. We have a travelling assessor who travels throughout Queensland to run some workshops and qualified assessors in different locations throughout Queensland.
Notification of workshop locations and dates are issued regularly by email from Student Support.
Practical and Third Party assessments within the course require an average of four to five days at Practical Workshops (for the duration of the course) to complete all components. All theory in a unit must be complete prior to attending a workshop for the assessment of the Practical and Third Party Reports.

Our Happy Students
“As a horse lover, owner/rider and pony club instructor I have been using the online course Cert II in Business (Working with Horses) for the last two years with 3 high school students. I have found the course interesting and engaging and all three girls have completed the course and gained their accreditation. Personally I enjoy getting the emails that Glenys sends out as they always contain so much good down to earth information and always on varying topics. The content has never failed to resonate with my own years of experience and personal feelings for the horse. I keep them all in a special file and revisit when I want a boost. Well done Glenys and the team.”
