Would you like to work in the horse industry and are looking for a qualification to get you started?
You may already have your own horse or ride regularly. This qualification fills in the gaps you need to gain employment in the horse industry.
This is an entry level Australian Qualification. Learn about the care, health and welfare of horses including a higher level of handling horses and working effectively in the horse industry.
You can take more responsibility for your working environment within the horse industry and use innovation to improve safety and efficiency with your horse related tasks.
How Long Will My Course Take?
However, it could take less time if you already have previous knowledge and experience with horses.
You can study your course at any time as long as you have your laptop/computer and internet access.
Where and how will my course be delivered?
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?
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.
