The qualifications, skill sets and units of competency that were reviewed and developed as part of the Greyhounds Project and Equine Safety in Training Project are now published on training.gov.au. It follows endorsement by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) and means they are available for use by registered training organisations (RTOs).
The greyhound qualifications, skill sets and units are embedded within the RGR Racing Training Package.
The equine qualifications, skill sets and units are embedded within the following training packages:
- ACM Animal Care and Management Training Package
- AHC Agriculture, Horticulture, and Conservation and Land Management Training Package
Equine qualifications, skill sets and units from the RGR Racing Training Package were not included in this release. Feedback from industry was that the proposed safety measures being applied to the AHC and ACM units were not appropriate for the horse racing Industry. As such, a new Racing Project has been established to satisfactorily incorporate safety into the units, skill sets and qualifications within the RGR Racing Training Package.
Skills Impact supported the relevant Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) to undertake these projects. Skills Impact is a national Skills Service Organisation, funded by the Australian Government to support the operation of Industry Reference Committees across a range of industries.
